Has anyone else found it extremely frustrating to download the trial for microsoft voice command, only to find out that we in NZ cannot buy the program from US, and it seems to have disappeared from flavour of the month. or so it seems to me. Actually tried the product and liked it heaps. it works well on the HTC Harrier.

Not the first one to complain... Microsoft has decided to make it available in the US first, then on its first update in Europe (UK) too. But that's it. Don't know why - it works well for me on my h4150, i-mate Pocket PC and TNZ Harrier - even with my funny accent.

I am Brazilian, and after a few years here my accent is an interesting mix... But Voice Command works ok for me.

I just tried to buy the UK version from Handango, so you can imagine my frustration when I got the stupid message.
It's no consolation Mauricio knowing that it can handle our accents when they won't sell us the bloody thing.

It's sooooooooooooo stupid as well as frustrating...given the variation in accents in the UK, it would have no trouble with NZ English.

Having Microsoft put us in the "You don't get to have that" category makes me one seriously unhappy and annoyed would-be customer.
