52So now, let's use the stroke dialer for something practical ---
53let's make phone calls with our smart phone!
54Well, we know Marvin would disapprove if we <i>just</i> made phone
55calls, so rest assured, we'll do a lot more later!
56</p>
57<p>
58Pressing the <u>call</u> button on Android phones launches the
59built-in dialing application. When using the Marvin shell,
60pressing this button launches the <i>Talking Dialer</i> application
61&mdash; if you are not using Marvin as your home screen, you can
62launch this dialer as you would launch any Android application.
63</p>
64<p>
65The <i>Talking Dialer</i> announces <u>dialing mode</u> upon start up.
66You can start dialing using the technique  described in the
67<a href="./02-strokes.html">previous video on stroke dialer</a> &mdash; if you make a mistake, simply
68shake the phone to erase. Once you have finished dialing, press
69the <u>call</u> button to initiate the call. The application speaks
70the number you're about to dial, and makes the call once you
71press the <u>call</u> button to confirm.
72But you say 
73<pre class="example">
74Dialing phone numbers is so passe'!
75</pre>
76</p>
77<p>
78&mdash; well, there is still hope for the <i>Talking Dialer</i>. In
79addition to <u>dialing mode</u>, the <i>Talking Dialer</i> provides an easy
80to use <i>Talking Phonebook</i> that provides eyes-free access to your
81contact list &mdash; we will cover this in our <a href="./04-phonebook.html">video on the talking phonebook</a>.
