Apologies, can't load video for some reason BUT like PC's wouldn't the voice command have to learn for a bit before being flawless?

Hopefully because that does seem a bit 'kinect 1'ish.

Yes. We already know to expect this with Xbox One and despite initial hiccups, all the reviews seem to say its a pretty excellent feature.

It's one guy in a quiet room with an American accent. What would it have to learn? Just curious as Google Now and Siri (I've seen friends using it) works from day 1. Even understands my Scottish :p

For some people, others still need to train it, there's plenty of articles around discussing it for both Apple and Google. Star Trek perfect voice recognition doesn't exist yet.

Considering they would have primarily coded it for the American accent that demo seemed like it was awful.  That would aggravate me having to repeat commands so many times.

It's kind of interesting that Destin had no problem with his commands.

 

What's not so interesting is that your initial comment was the only thing you took away from the video...  :rolleyes:

 

Oh, and some of the "not working" things are just him not using the proper commands.

I think it has to do more with cadence of speech and being able to distinguish distinct words. This was shown off a couple weeks ago by The Verge: http://www.neowin.ne...ated-dashboard/

They struggled with it too, but the success rate was still high, and they hadn't had time to get used to it.

I've been watching the video, and often he gets the commands wrong, you have to learn them.   A few other times I think they didn't register because he's rushing the commands.   What I mean is that it seems like you have to give it a small pause after you say Xbox.   So when you say Xbox, Go Home.  It'll pick it up because of the small pause after Xbox.  But at times he's got no pause between and that seems to effect it.

So, for someone who's at work; Did they feature the snapping mode for Skype?

90% of the video is focused around voice commands... Or should I say the majority if focussed around Kinect.

I'd hope that could be improved or learned upon, some people naturally speak fast. Americans seem to be really slow in comparison to say British people.

cough*


 

but what genuinely surprised us is how well the Kinect-powered voice controls work. Navigating the user interface is usually easier using voice than it is with traditional joypad inputs, because the quality of the speech recognition is highly accomplished. We were impressed by the accuracy of the PS4 version last week, but its dictionary is significantly more limited than Xbox One's. Virtually every major UI option, game or app is accessible by voice on Xbox One and, by our reckoning, accuracy is probably in the 90 per cent range.

Indeed, it's not knowing exactly what to say that accounts for many of voice control's misfires, rather than issues with recognition itself. Some commands require an "Xbox" prefix, others don't; sometimes Kinect seems to be in listen mode, other times it isn't.

The good news? Issues aside, it really works. In fact, the fastest way to navigate the Xbox One's user interface is via the incredibly robust suite of voice commands.

I noticed that as well, youshouldnot order commands likethis. Kinect must "activate" before you order it.

 

It's not "Xboxwatchtv" it's "Xbox Watch TV"

 

Perhaps it would be a good idea to think of Kinect as a foreign person who barely speaks your language or even a child, just relax and speak slowly. I have not had an hands on experience with Kinect, these are just my observations from videos.

In pretty much all the reviews I've read it does say it works but not 100%. Since I've got a thick Yorkshire accent, I hope it does work with me.

 

Doesn't that video have a lot of background noise and he was literally saying the wrong commands?
