    Default JB Voice Actions in different language then system language

    Hi,

    I'm using SGN with JB official version that was available OTA. My system language is English (menus and options) but I would like to use Voice commands in German. I have set up the voice settings in German and language (words) is reckognized as such but voice actions are not. When I type the command in English then they work.

    Example, I want to navigate to somewhere. In German I say 'Navigieren zu...' and google understands it like that but starts the web search with this words (because they are not reckognized as a action). If I type 'Navigate to...' (I cannot say this because Voice is set to German) then it is accepted as an action and the phone starts to navigate.

    So, is it possible to have the phone UI (menus, texts) in one language (English in my case) and voice actions in another one (German)? Do I miss some setting?

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    Try downloading an offline language pack, in German. It's found in the settings of Google Now/Voice Search.

    I have already downloaded German language for offline speech reckognition. It didn't help.
    I mean my scenario is not the typical one, English for a system language, but German voice commands, but then again, I cannot imagine that other people don't have similar issues.

    It looks like I'm not the only one with the problem:

    I'm experiencing the same problem when using English as a system language but Italian for voice commands.

    I have the same problem. I would like to have the voice action commands in german, but remain on english as my system language.
