Speak to Dolphin Browser!
With Dolphin, a free mobile web browser for Android and iOS, one thing we pride ourselves on is being a good listener.
Dolphin Sonar is a feature that allows you to search, share, and navigate the web with your voice.
Dolphin Sonar can be accessed by:
Shaking your phone. This option can be activated by accessing Dolphin menu > Settings > Gesture & Sonar. Choosing the Sonar tab on top of the screen and enabling “Shake to Activate.”
You can also access Sonar by long pressing the Dolphin button at the bottom menu bar and selecting the microphone icon.
Dolphin Sonar has four main uses:
Search the web: Dolphin Sonar can be used for four different searches:
Basic searching: Use Google, Bing, Yahoo!, DuckDuckGo, or Yandex. Say any word (for example: “news”), and Dolphin will search the web for it using your selected default search engine. The search engine can be changed by entering the URL bar and tapping the search engine icon to the left.
Search in social media: Say “Facebook” or “Twitter” followed by what you would like to search for, and Dolphin will look it up. For example: “Twitter Lady Gaga”.
Shopping: Say “Amazon” or “eBay” followed by what’s on your shopping list, and Dolphin will find what you are looking for. For example: “eBay Nike shoes”.
Enjoy YouTube: Say “YouTube” in combination with a search word, and let Dolphin do the rest. For example: “YouTube dogs”.
Open websites: Dolphin Sonar knows more than 500 websites by name. Say “Facebook” and Dolphin will go straight to the site. If Dolphin does not know the website, it will search for it using your default search engine.
Browser actions: Dolphin Sonar can be used to navigate the browser. Say things like “back”, “bottom of page”, “new tab”, etc. and Dolphin will execute the desired browser action. See the following list of Dolphin Sonar browser actions for an overview:
