Hi,

How do I find out what languages are available for speech recognition in Android? I mean, not a code snippet, but a website with a current list of supported languages. I'd like to write a simple application that allows me to say: "send" (in portuguese-br) and that understands it as a command and sends a sms message. Is that available out of the box today ?

Thanks.

I have seen some language listings in Android Mobile. I think it can help you.

1. Voice Input & Output->Voice recognizer settings->Language
2. Voice Input & Output->Text-to-speech settings->Language

There is no official listing as far as I know, but all big languages are available. I set it myself to German, Dutch, French, Portuguese, Spanish, Japanese and Italian successfully already.

From the Google documentation:
Google's servers support many languages for voice input, with more arriving regularly. You can use the ACTION_GET_LANGUAGE_DETAILS broadcast intent to query for the list of supported languages.

Since languages are added from time to time, an official list would definitely need continuous maintenance too.

This post shows up on when searching for what languages does android speech recognition support. Forgive me for replying to this old thread.

Wikipedia has a list scraped together from plenty of sources: Google Voice Search
