Really love my JBL Slim & it works flawlessly ... apart from voice activation.
Thats closer to 80% of the time.

However it definitely works better on the road than in a living room test environment.
If you can activate Siri or Google, then your microphone settings are fine.
From experience, add more of a pause when issuing a voice command & dont shout.
Hey Cardo (1,2) Music Off

If this doesnt work & Im not winding you up, over emphasise an American accent.
Hay Carrdoe really does work  :008:

Yes, such thoughts crossed my mind as I 'played around' to see what it responded to best. You can get 'fool it' using phrases that are similar to 'Hey cardo previous track' so long as you emphasise certain sounds such as the 'ack' at the end and substitute your own word instead of track.

I think they should do a software fix online so you can get it to respond to how you pronounce the dedicated commands instead of however it is set up to recognise them at present.

Sometimes it takes 2 or 3 goes to respond but it got better and better once it trained me to speak properly..... :003:

And just lifted from BBC news .....

The people with voices that tech needs to recognise
Project Understood aims to improve voice recognition software for users with Down's syndrome.

The programme is a partnership between the US technology company Google and the Canadian Down Syndrome Society. But anyone with Down's syndrome can take part in Project Understood.

Well, jokes aside, I do seem to have "Ok Google" working a lot of the time now"  :152: and that is very handy especially telling Google maps what to do etc, maybe my Ozzie accent is too unAmerican for "Hey Cardo"!  :084:

Maybe .... I don't even want to say this.....maybe I'll try a fake 'murican accent  :435:
Everything else works great.

Considering I had a Belfast accent till I went to school, maybe that would have worked better!!! :087:

absolutely no bloody chance that he/she/it will recognise my Afrikaans South African accent  :492:

except perhaps when I give he/she/it two words - and it is not bon voyage
When you talk, you only repeat what you already know - when you listen, you learn something new
