I tested Samsung's voice search for its Your Video feature by saying the title of the TV show or Movie (column A) in a clear voice, using the same tone I would to command a dog. The first three times I spoke to the TV, using its built-in mic. The second three times I spoke into the mic on the remote control. I used the titles of 11 popular TV shows and 11 popular current movies. I was seated about 8 feet from the TV in a quiet room. A "success," in green, is any result that causes the TV show or movie I was searching for to appear in the first four search results; a failure is anything else. In both cases I recorded the results of what the TV actually "heard" and used as a search term. -- David Katzmaier, CNET using Samsung PN60E8000 (software version: 001015). Update April 5: By way of further explanation, cell E23 is a failure (not green) because despite appearing to understand the term correctly, the TV didn't show the movie in the search results. For cells B20, E20 and G20, an alternate spelling caused no results to appear, which again counts as a failure. Cell B9 was a success, on the other hand, because it found the correct result despite using an inexact search term (singular instead of plural).
