Hi, All

I tried to use in background the speech recognition (in a service)
1) this "Another SpeechRecognizer Library" https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/another-speechrecognizer-library.37584/
2) and later modified this "Android Speech Recognition API Wrapper" class, to avoid using the lib: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/android-speech-recognition-api-wrapper.62959/

Both are working OK using online and offline downloaded language (Android 4.2.2 and Android 5.0 real devices), but .... only in the debug mode.
Any Release (including non-obfuscated) compilation - stops working speech recognition :-(
Compiled with targetSdkVersion="22", all sub names are with "_", no any system error in the log .....
I can publish the debug and release app APKs to try (it's simple but they are with RU interface).

How to understand this issue?

No, i mentioned. If not to suppress the start-stop beeps of SR - in release it beeps at start - at nothing happened next.

Erel, it have tried "DisableStrictMode" - no good news.
But why - this SR can work well without Internet at all - it works in debug with offline downloaded language pack.

Hmmmm, as a new project - it's work after Release compilation !!!
UPDATE:

"_onError" sub at my project was "_Error": and i did not get errors, error 5 is here - RESULT_AUDIO_ERROR, mic channel is occupied by other sub listening the silence.
Erel, thanks for idea :)

Erel, but the question is not answered :-(
I had misprint in event sub name _Error instead of _onError, and this event is not fired. But why in debug mode the app works as needed fully - but when compile as Release - no recognition ?!

If i fix the error in the sub name - i get standard errors from SpeechRecognizer object.
Maybe debug mode uses many DoEvents ?

I added DoEvents after AudioRecorder.Stop before start SpeechRecognition - and it works now in Release mode.

Hi ; here is what I did just added some stuff to your code; it works online; do I need the speech library to use this offline ? I had the language pack already and did not know. Thank u I added example code to suppress some beeps.
