Magic Leap now offers Speech Commands, a speech-driven input methodology for performing system actions. When enabled, you can use the wake phrase “Hey Lumin” to initialize the functionality. After saying the wake phrase, you can use a Speech Command to perform tasks, such as changing the volume of audio, exiting an application or taking a camera capture, in place of using your Control.
Please note that this setting is limited to use of speech as an input for system functions only. Speech Command data is not designed to be exposed to apps.
When you enable Speech Commands for system functionality, your device’s near field microphone will be available to the system locally to wait for the wake phrase. Once the system recognizes the wake phrase, a voice clip (typically five-to-ten seconds in duration) will be recorded locally and analyzed by on-device software. Speech Commands are built with a preloaded library on your device and do not function like speech-to-text dictation, so it should not recognize or respond to any audio or instructions other than the available Speech Commands. Speech Commands is designed to respond only to commands you speak (as opposed to commands spoken by others in the environment around you), by using techniques designed to filter out other speech. Processing to enable Speech Commands for system functionality is done locally on your device. However, if you have chosen to share analytics data with Magic Leap, the resulting text strings and event success or failure data from your use of Speech Commands may be collected by Magic Leap.
Use of Speech Commands is optional and you can enable or disable it in Settings at anytime. Disabling Speech Commands in Settings will only affect your use of Speech Commands for system functions and will not impact your use of speech-to-text dictation (which can be used by selecting the microphone icon on the keyboard screen).
