User Experience Requested Re Diction Issues With Voice Assisted AI Devices



A search, include uTube vids, gets almost zero hits re just how good a job these devices do re "understanding" users & to what extent the problems results from user diction.

I find that quite odd since voice activation commands is a major selling point for them.

I'm requesting that users post feedback re if/when diction is a problem, to include, I would imagine, just how quiet ambient noise has to be in order for the machine to 'understand' the command.

Thanks

FYI: I don't have such a device, to include a smart phone, and I have almost zero experience with Google Voice on my android tablet.

One comedian said he was tempted to say on the radio:-

"Alexi, send all my browsing history to my mother"

My wife Ruby has some frustration with "OK, Google. . . ." but a large part of her problem has to do with the phrasing of her requests.

On the other hand, she does not have the patience to type, or to use a browser search engine, so voice-activated is about all she has, other than asking a family member to find something or do something for her.

Marymary has mentioned in another post that Scottish speech is a problem for the program about which she spoke.
