Is voice activation something you need?

    PCs following voice commands isn't new. Windows comes with Speech Recognition and voice-command features, which when properly configured, can serve as a great accessibility feature. MSI plans to take voice commands a step further with what it calls "Voice Activated Motherboard" technology. The feature extends voice-commands to OS-independent ACPI functions such as powering on the PC from halted state (cold booting), suspend it, or powering down, both graceful (OS shutdown) and forceful (power off).

    The feature depends on a daughterboard accessory that requires a PCI-Express x1 slot. This daugherboard connects to the motherboard using a special header found on some recent MSI motherboards that has been labelled "JDLED3", and a mic/line input. JDLED3, we assume, gives the card some low-level connectivity to the board that it can't have through HAL. The rest of the daughterboard looks to have a some legacy circuitry and an ADC. On the OS side, MSI will deploy the Voice Genie software which can be used to get the device to recognize your voice and set your own voice commands. The software probably could even be used to suspend voice recognition. Otherwise, imagine telling your Teamspeak buddy in-game to "restart" the server or a map, and the board following a system restart command that sounds identical. MSI says that this accessory will have a "more than affordable price."

    leftover of us always getting recycled american or english software, they can never understand us.


    seriously, if i put on a cheesey british accent win 7 can understand me, but not normally. oh no. 'start, run' would result in my microwave exploding. (and then the government installing a firewall to prevent microwaves being googled)

    Maybe cuz it's easier to justify a ridiculous pricetag with this kind of nonsense, than to try to explain the importance of phase control to this tron/ipad generation.

    Now that's said.... wth is phase control :wtf: :confused: ?

    And what is wrong with MSIs power circuitry delivery sytem? As far as i know, almost all socket 1155 MSI motherboards have the most advanced power delivery system and also use the highest quality components.

    The first thought i had was, that i could finally tell the computer:

    "Tea, Earl Grey, Hot"

    Man, did i waited long to be able to do that!:laugh:

    It's really Star Trek nerdiness, but I'd love to say "Computer! Show me what's on TV today!" to my HTPC...

    In a Picard voice obviously. And start programs by uttering make it so would be aweshums.
