Second generation PS (2014-2018) / Kia Soul 2014-2018 PS Owner Manual / Features of your vehicle / Voice recognition / Voice Recognition and Phone Contact Tips:

The Kia Voice Recognition System may have difficulty understanding some accents or uncommon names. When using Voice Recognition to place a call, speak in a moderate tone, with clear pronunciation To maximize the use of Voice Recognition, consider these guidelines when storing contacts:

  • Do not store single-name entries (e.g., Bob, Mom, etc.). Instead, always use full names (including first and last names) for these contacts
  • Do not use special characters (e.g., '@', '-', '*', '&', etc.)
  • Do not use abbreviations (i.e., use "Lieutenant" instead of "Lt.") or acronyms (i.e., use "County Finance Department" instead of "C. F. D."; Be sure to say the name exactly as it is entered in the contacts list
  • Do not use acronyms (i.e., use County Finance Department instead of CFD).
  • If a name is not recognized from the contact list, change it to a more descriptive name (e.g., use Grandpa Joseph instead of Pa Joe).
