The speech recognition seems to accept things when they are completely wrong. For example I was supposed to say "Yo escribo libros" but without thinking I said "I read books" and I still got it right! How accurate is this speech recognition supposed to be?
I know this is an old thread but it seemed the most relevant to the issue I have. Basically I find that the speech recognition on the iPad app is extremely poor. I am learning both Italian and German and in both languages I've noticed the app will sometimes fail an accurate reading of the phrase and in others pass something completely incorrect - on one occasion I was having a conversation with my wife (in English) and accidentally pressed the 'Microphone' button, and was pretty surprised to see the app award me with a 'Pass' for that phrase a few seconds later! I realise that speech recognition is a tough thing to do, technically speaking, but if it's this inaccurate it really shouldn't be in the app as it gives users a false impression of success. Are there any plans to improve it on the horizon?
