Common Questions and concerns:
Q: Why do I get strange answers to my question?
A: The free version of Voice Answer does not have an actual knowledge base behind it. Unless you upgrade the app with 'Wolfram Alpha' which is available as in-app purchase, you will receive answers from our chatbot, which can be charming, but rarely really intelligent.
We are further enhancing our current data sources with additional databases as these become available and affordable, as we want to offer our customers the very best.
For now, please enhance the app with the 'Wolfram Alpha' knowledge base, if you wish to receive actual accurate information from 'Eve'.
Q: What do I do when voice answer doesn't understand my voice?
A: Voice Answer compares your voice against a database of spoken english words and sentences. It works better for some people than for others. In general it works better than the voice recognition used by many other apps, but it depends on your accent. Try to speak slow and use regular sentences. If this doesn't work, you can use the keyboard. As and when better voice recognition algorithms are developed and become available, we can and will plug these in.
Q: What is done with the answers to the questions Voice Answer asks?
A: We do not store the answers and do not use them in any way. Feel free to talk about any topic, any information given will only be used in the conversation, if at all.
We take your comments and criticisms very seriously and we plan to add additional features and further improve the app with a series of updates. Contact us at [email protected] for any issues.
