Voice Studio App Spreads to Other Countries

Voice Studio App Spreads to Other Countries

Still not in all regions though

Written by punkyliar on 21 March 12 at 13:35

Voice Studio, the free Social App that tests Kinect's voice recognition capabilities, is no longer exclusive to the US. The app is still not available in every region, but we can now confirm that it has spread to some European countries (UK, Netherlands, Norway, Germany, Russia, France, Poland, Sweden and Austria are confirmed), Canada, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia. If you find that it is available in your country too, leave a comment in the thread and we'll update this post.

The app can only be downloaded from the Xbox dashboard; the app is not available on Xbox.com. To download Voice Studio, head to the Social tab of the Xbox dashboard and select Social Apps. Voice Studio will be one of four options there. Alternatively, some people are reporting that the app is not appearing on the dashboard and that you will have to search for it through Bing. You MUST have Kinect to be able to use this app.

The app asks players to read a variety of preset phrases covering sports teams, films, TV shows, celebrities and the usual Xbox commands. There are several hundred phrases in total spread over eight tracks, but if you need an incentive, think of the free four achievements worth 50G and the four avatar awards. Of course, there's also the satisfaction of knowing that you helped to improve Kinect's voice recognition capabilities, but we all know that isn't the real reason why you're doing this, is it?

Thanks to the members of the community who sent this one in!

"She refused, so he fetched his hammer again", I would like to know why Microsoft needs me to say this? Or "Bing Cilla Black" . The Uploading on this is horrendous but can't can't complain at free GS

There is an even easier way to find this app -- just say "Xbox, Bing, Voice Studio". Easy-peasy.

I know that it isn't available in Taiwan for example, and I doubt if Japan and Korea have it either.

We've mentioned the countries that we can confirm. We added this clause for a reason: "If you find that it is available in your country too, leave a comment in the thread and we'll update this post."

Also; I wish you guys would add a notification feature if you've been quoted, 'cause I'll never know if you reply unless I manually refresh the comments section of this post.

I love that this is to improve voice recognition, yet everyone is using background noise or random speech: hope no one complains when Kinect can't understand any orders!!!

I never said learn to read. I just said that I didn't put "Itz not in Canada" either. I've now spelt it out for those who had the kneejerk reaction. I put my quote back in so that people could see what I actually said in the thread too.

I'm taking a class in radio performance right now, and I showed this app to my professor, and now completing the tests is part of the next class. Score! He said it's great practice to try to get a phrase you've never seen before correct the first time, on sight.
