Speech Recognition in Australia?

Does anyone know (or have an idea) when Kinect Speech Recognition will be added in Australia?

Dunno about the rest of you but I was kinda yawning during the X-Box E3 briefing considering so much of what they were talking about was Kinect Speech intergration into games like Mass Effect 3, that's great... but doesn't phase me seeings as we don't have it yet!

 

Sick of getting left behind by Microsoft in Australia!

Soon apparently. I think I heard them say later this year.

That being said, its been ready since Kinect was released, and its even been tested, so there is no reason why it shouldn't already be out

[/quote]It was "soon" when Kinect was released.

Well last year they said it was to be at the end of that year. This year they're saying it'll be at the end of this year. So maybe, if we're lucky, the end of next year?

It has been ready since release. When we did the beta for Kinect with the new dash, we had an app where we were required to provide voice samples by reciting phrases shown on the screen, such as "sit girl", and "xbox off" or "fast forward".

It works perfectly, and I've never had any issues. I have a pretty thick aussie accent too (which my wife describes as  "really occa") so they can't say that it doesn't work since there were plenty of Aussies who were in the Kinect beta and contributed to the voice data collection.

I wouldn't be too worried about not having support in games anyway. Even if we don't have support in the dash, so long as we are using a supported language (such as English) then we should still be able to play the games using voice.

Yes.

And most conditions of the NDA were lifted once the Kinect was released. The same with near all betas that you participate in.

Just for the record I had speech recognition for 5 min today. It recognised "xbox, kinect" but that was all. It would start the kinect hub then do nothing. Anyone else get this? (oh and i am a registered Australian live member)

So I downloaded kinetic sports 2 demo and speech works on that really well so I don't know why they are holding out releasing it completely over here on the dashboard. Weird.
