Tip: iPhone Voice Dial and Siri

For great accuracy when voice dialing and using Siri on an iPhone, as soon as it starts listening — pause for a moment, silent — then speak.

This allows the iPhone a moment to recognize the ambient sound where you are. If you start talking right away, your voice becomes part of the the ambient noise. The poor thing will be confused!

Want Siri to be faster? I wrote about that.
