Speech to text on the Android

Hey,

       I was trying to get speech to text on the android working, by following the Addison Wesley's The Developers Android Cookbook.  The example they give in the chapter seems fairly straightforward, but for some reason its not working properly... I made sure to write all the relevant files, and just to be sure, I copied the files straight out of the book, but it doesn't work...

I'm using Ubuntu on a 13" MacbookPro... so not sure if its the OS, or if its my program...

main-recipe.java

main.xml

strings.xml

AndroidManifest.xml

Appreciate any help on this!

It seems that emulator has not Speech Recognition feature yet.
Following the next link answer
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2436613/recognizerintent-action-recognize-speech-no-activity-found-to-handle-it-on-emul
I succeeded to make a step forward (the RecognizerIntent.ACTION_RECOGNIZE_SPEECH exists now), but there is another error now: Recording parameters are not supported: sampleRate 16000, channelCount 1, format 1
I read about this problem there: http://osdir.com/ml/AndroidDiscuss/2009-08/msg00324.html
but I couldn't find a solution.
I hope that you'll have more luck!

Lol... yea, I couldn't find anything on this topic after a whole day of searching... I guess I'll keep searching for it for the duration of the weekend or so...

I'm trying to finish the whole book (Addison Wesley's The Developers Android Cookbook) as fast as I can... so I'll have to move ahead.
