Supported Recipes

Does Voicipe support recipes from any website?
Voicipe supports thousands of recipes across hundreds of popular recipe websites and food blogs. Some sites are formatted such that they are not Voicipe-friendly, but chances are, your favorite recipe website is supported. Check out How it works.

How many recipes does Voicipe have?
Voicipe doesn’t create or publish its own recipes, instead Voicipe voice-enables other recipe provider’s recipes. For example, AllRecipes has tens of thousands of recipes on their platform and, because Voicipe supports AllRecipes, all of the recipes on AllRecipes are supported.

Can I upload or import my own recipe(s)?
Voicipe does not currently support uploading custom recipes.

Does Voicipe support diet-specific or food restrictions?
Many specialty diet and food restriction recipe providers are supported by Voicipe including Nut Free Wok (peanut-free recipes) and Forks Over Knives (vegan recipes), among many others.

Recipe Publishers

How does Voicipe support food bloggers?

Voicipe understands that food bloggers earn revenue from ads and affiliate links. Voicipe provides Google search for Voicipe users to find internet recipes. When they select your recipe, the full recipe page loads so they can view all images, videos, links and ads.

Once users are ready to activate the text-to-speech and voice recognition, they tap Load Recipe, and at that point the view minimizes to just the ingredients and directions.

If you have any additional questions, concerns, or suggestions email us at: hello@voicipe.com. We want to hear from you!

Why do my recipe pages say  “No Recipe Found” in Voicipe?

Voicipe supports recipes with ingredients and directions that use standardized formatting. If your recipes are not supported and you would like them to be Voicipe-friendly so your users can cook hands-free, email us at hello@voicipe.com.

No. This was one of our personal pet peeves while cooking, so once you press “Voice-enable,” as long as you remain in the Voicipe app, your phone will not lock or turn-off.

Does Voicipe support timers?

Yes. Voicipe allows multiple timers to run at the same time.  You can pause, stop and resume timers easily.

Does Voicipe support metric measurements?
Yes, if the recipe provider uses metric units, then Voicipe will be able to read these units to you.

Can Voicipe do measurement conversions?
Not yet. Soon we will have a “measurement conversion waitlist” for you to be notified when this feature is added to the Voicipe app.

Can Voicipe change serving sizes?
Not yet. Soon we will have a “serving size waitlist” for you to be notified when this feature is added to the Voicipe app.
