Yes that is a word!… YOU actually spell it “accents” but I pronounce it axcients [ax-see-ints]. 🙂 When discussing my “axcient” I will have to throw grammar & spelling out…
You see, me&MyPhone were having a discussion. I usually have a “quick code” text prepared to send to the kids before I leave on my way to pick them up from school. Well, since I have a new phone, I haven’t mastered much of the stuff I’m used to doing without thinking. SOOO, Jeff suggested I turn on SIRI on my new phone… SIRI being a voice controlled assistant. Hence the me&MyPhone having a discussion.
I attempted to ask SIRI to “please text Courtney Scott that I am on my way.” She replied with something that sounded remarkably like “I cannot find a Dorky White in your contacts. Will you please repeat your request?” [This makes me question whether Courtney actually had a speech impediment as a small child or if she actually thought she heard me calling her Dorky?!?!?]
SOOOO, I’m trying to decide if I heard SIRI correctly [keep in mind that I am hard of hearing and now I suspect that SIRI is as well!!!] or if I should say WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?!?!?
By this time, I am actually driving… since I can talk to my phone 😉 and I repeated my request with the exact same response. SOOO, let’s change tactics… “Please text Courtney Scott I am at a nearby light.” I cannot find a Dorky White, did you mean Courtney Scott? If so, say yes.” “Please repeat YES.” “Ok, I will text Courtney Scott with this message…” says nothing… “If so, say yes. Can you repeat yes?”
As I was pulling up to the school, Courtney finally received a text from me that just said “nearby.”
SOOOO…. not sure voice commands between us are going to continue?!?!?
