Microsoft Kinect?s voice commands and speech recognition feature

Hello friends, I was recently gifted an Xbox 360 console by my brother and it?s quite cool. But I am facing some problems while playing with it. I am not able to control my Xbox 360 using the Kinect voice commands and speech recognition. It would be very helpful to me if someone tells me how to activate the voice commands of the Xbox 360 kinect and also tells me how it works. So, please if someone has any knowledge about it let me know and if anyone has the Xbox 360 console with kinect voice share your experience with me and how you play with it.

Re: Microsoft Kinect?s voice commands and speech recognition feature

Hello there, by using the Kinect voice recognition, your Xbox 360 console can be controlled with your voice. To start using the Kinect voice commands on your Xbox 360 console, you will have to use some voice inputs. In order to activate the Kinect voice commands, you need to begin by saying the word ?Xbox.? Once you say ?Xbox,? the Kinect speech bar will be activated and will be open at the bottom of the screen. After saying ?Xbox? the Kinect voice commands are activated by you and after that you can say or speak any word or phrase which appears on screen to activate that item. For example, you can say ?Xbox open tray? to open the disc drive.

Re: Microsoft Kinect?s voice commands and speech recognition feature

One of the most important points which you should probably keep in your mind is that the user won?t be able to turn ON or OFF the Xbox console with voice commands. Also when you are watching some videos from your stored video library or from the Windows Media center or while you are playing music from your music library. Voice commands are also disabled while you are playing any music of video files from your disc. It is recommended to read the game manuals or the on-screen instructions while you are playing the game, in order to make sure that the game supports voice commands.
