Voice Commands

Using voice commands in RealDash (full version feature).

RealDash implements voice commands on all 3 platforms (RealDash version 1.3.3 or newer required). On Apple devices and iOS 10 or newer is required.

Currently only English voice commands are supported.

To enable voice commands in RealDash go to Settings->Application (second page) and enable 'USE VOICE COMMANDS' option. When voice commands are enabled, touch screen when running RealDash normally. Screen will darken and you can dictate the voice command. The touching of the screen is required since continuous detection of voice commands uses battery, and may lead to heavy network usage.

The voice command detection can be also started with RealDash Triggers & Actions system.

For smooth operation of voice recognition, it is recommended to download speech recognition database to enable its usage offline:


  • Open Android device Settings
  • 'Languages & Input'
  • 'Virtual Keyboard'
  • 'Google voice typing'
  • 'Offline speech recognition' and download the language for offline use.

Windows 10:

It seems like currently it is not possible to use offline speech recognition with Windows 10.


This works only on some iOS devices.

  • Open device Settings
  • General
  • Keyboard

Scroll down a bit until you see the “Dictation” section. If you own a supported device that is set to the right language, you should be able to download the offline dictation files from here.
