Replace/remove s-voice on the Samsung Galaxy S3 (and hopefully noteII)

From the website My quest to replace S-Voice on a Samsung Galaxy S3 | listentopaul

...a post in a forum (link) that gave me the missing link to getting “Bluetooth Launch” to work!  There were a few more steps to do:Open S-Voice and from the settings menu, un-check the option to launch with the home button. (Home2Shortcut takes over anyway).Open the phone “System settings” and goto “Applications manager”.  Swipe right twice to get to “All” and find S-Voice and disable it.Connect to your bluetooth headset/device with the screen unlocked and press the bluetooth button. This should cause a “Complete action using” dialog.  Here you can launch any application you want, including Google Search.To automatically launch the google search with voice search activated, I found another handy app called “ICS Voice Search Shortcut” (link).
And there you go.  S-Voice replaced!
This was all done on a Samsung Galaxy S III LTE (I9305) with Jellybean 4.1.2.
