Free Wikipedia Viewer

Update – Version 1.5 Now with VOICE SEARCH!

I often find myself asking “WHY?” or “HOW?” and have learnt the more I know, the more I realise how little I really do know. So I wrote a Wikipedia viewer to answer just those questions, the app will use suggestive search to help you find the information you need to know on the spot.

    I’m using this. This is very good. In particular voice recognition is very useful. But the voice recognition language is fixed to the system UI language although the language in Wikipedia can be changed.
    I’m using my phone in Spanish, but I watch Wikipedia in English because it has the most articles in all the languages. In this situation I want to search in English by voice recognition, but I can enter just Spanish words.
    Can Windows Phone APIs change the recognition language?

      Hello,

      While spanish is the default language that voice recognition will use if thats what your phone UI is, it should still work with english words. I know a few people who have their phone UI set to english but speak to it in russian and dutch and they have told me it works well. Have you tried talking to it in english?

      Andrew.
