Tip: Remove Profanity Filter from Android Voice-to-Text

Posted on Aug 17 2011 - 2:59pm by Brian

For those of you voice-to-text users who fancy themselves a sailor’s mouth, you might have noticed that no matter how well you enunciate those profanities they still fail to be recognized. Here’s the solution that will let you sing freely!

To unblock offensive words from Google’s voice recognition software, hit Menu > Settings > Voice input and output > Voice recognition settings > uncheck Block offensive words:

Now you can be as offensive as you want without having to worry about Google judging your word choice.

    Here’s my problem. I have unchecked the box as show above. I have tried checking it and then re-un-checking it. No matter WHAT I have tried thus far, I am unable to remove the curse word filter from the voice-to-text on my RAZR… HELP!!

    George Carlin would have been proud. The filter got all seven of his words you can’t say on TV…I did manage to get it to type “sofa king” however… :o)
