Voice training?
« on: October 10, 2009, 10:29:44 pm »
Is there anyway I can train B&M to recognise my voice? It seemed to be pretty hopeless and recognising anything I was saying - ? Is there a teaching option or something like that?
As Keith Richards tells it, Jones came up with the name "The Rollin' Stones" (later with the 'g') while on the phone with a venue owner. "The voice on the other end of the line obviously said, 'What are you called?' Panic. The Best of Muddy Waters album was lying on the floor—and track one was 'Rollin' Stone Blues'".

    You may be better off taking elocution lessons yourself  ;D

    The number of times have have to shout YES when it asks me if I wish to call the number now, then ignores my replies  ::)

    It's total c*ck. Other than the standard commands, its never understood a word I've said.

    It appears to particularly dislike London accents.

    I seem to do alright with mine although I do have the odd yes, yes, YES, YES, YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS situation myself. I found its easier to hit the call button on the steering wheel once the name comes up.

    Although my blue and me has taken cascada - truely madly deeply off my memory stick and now has it perminantly in its memory. Weird... because out of the 500 or so songs on my USB stick it was the worst. Maybe its taking revenge for all the shouting YES!!

    Don't know what you mean, I mearly copied a quote from you.  How you chose to spell it is a reflection on your southern upbringing

    I find using "Och Aye" and asking it to call Jimmy and then having to tell it "Not Jimmy, other Jimmy" seems to work. Try putting on an accent like Groundskeeper Willy for The Simpsons and see if it works?

    the voice recognition in my mercedes SL500 often didnt understand my scottish accent but the blue & me does every time.....I guess the Merc was just too posh.

    having said that the Blue & Me is pretty awful ..tries to do too much with insufficient development..typical Windows!! :(
