Long race like 10,000 m - with many athletes on the track. Lap counting. I want to keep my eyes on the track and also hit lap splits. They all have hip numbers. Please add voice recognition. If I say "ten" into the phone then competitor number 10 just went by. Can you add voice recognition? Would be very effective to keep count of laps.
Interesting idea. I’ve tried some experiments. Initial thoughts: constant voice recognition is not allowed, so it has to be with a button press. There’s also the problem that voice recognition is not 100% reliable, and asking for immediate feedback kind of defeats the purpose.
What I’m thinking is to maybe tie it to the volume buttons. As now, press up for a lap, and down for a stop. But if you hold it down, then it will listen for a name or number. Then if it recognizes it, great; otherwise it remembers the voice and when reviewing the unassigned laps later, you can play back your own voice to help you assign it.
Does that sound useful
Yes that sounds very useful.
