Has anyone found a program similar to Siri that actually reconises New Zealand accent?

Ive recently discovered Speaktoit but still doesnt understand the ole KIWI accent :D

any tweaks or anything we can do to get the to function properly on out OS?

I tried this but it failed to recognize my accent properly, i may have had it setup wrong?

Vlingo came pre installed on my E7. I hadn't tried it till just now while reading this thread.  It worked perfectly. Sure it was only a short message but it sent the correct message to the correct person first time round.  So far I'm impressed.

I have speaktoit on my phone and it can be a bit hit and miss. I find if I talk too slowly it has trouble, so I try
talking at a normal speed, which helps. Kiwi's tend to talk to fast at the best of times. Maybe try slowing down just a bit.

I have found VLingo very accurate - although it demands quite high bandwidth and seems to be most accurate when on WiFi.

Speaktoit and Vlingo work fine for me.  I've found if I talk normally, both programs work well with my kiwi accent.

Vlingo works ok for me as long as I'm not going too fast in the car, when I guess the wind/road noise creates issues. Around 50km/h is OK, more than 80km/h is pretty hit and miss.
