Ed is visually impaired and wants to know if the new Motorola Moto-X has voice activated features. Leo says absolutely! In fact, just about any new Android phone can do this, thanks to the new 'Google Now' technology. It also has voice-over features which will read him what's on the screen.
There are other voice recognition programs available on Android, including Nuance, but noisy conditions will be a challenge no matter what he uses. He could also try using the Google Voice engine. Vlingo, Samsung's voice recognition system, is another option.
