GoPro 8 voice commands language - to me works better French

hi all,

 

in English "GoPro turn off" never worked for me regardless of the English (US, UK, NZ) set.

other commands worked in English let's say 50%.

 

I do have an "R" pronunciation like a french...it is not a problem, it is a feature!....Smiley Tongue

 

because I know French as well, I set French for voice commands.

 

works every time and every command!!!!!!!!

I just have to learn a little the commands.....

 

just wanted to share with you!

robert

That really is interesting!  

 

Not sure if GoPro could use it, but wonder if you could do a youtube video of you saying all the GoPro commands in English.  Maybe GoPro could then grab the audio and "teach" their camera to recognize a few more different pronounciations and accents.

English is not my native language, nor French... 

the dutch people I'm working with are saying that I'm speaking English like a German...GoPro will have then to add: English (GE), English (EE), English (IT), English (APAC)... GE Germany, EE East European, IT Italian, APAC (Asia, China, India, etc....)

 

no way!.....Smiley Very HappySmiley Tongue

 

just me,

robert

Re: GoPro 8 voice commands language - to me works better French

hi Jay,

@graytree76514 thank you!....

 

I'm smiling since I switch to French... I make my colleagues day when I start to speak French with my H8  in da office...and every time works... anyway, H8 is the only one that really listens to my commands in the office...Smiley LOL

 

about the English voice commands.

- If I put Google Translate to speak - works 100%

- If I ask one of my colleagues to speak the English commands works as well.

- for me that "Gopro turn off" never work...turn on work and all other commands 80% 

 

It's clear my pronunciation Jay, I would not bother too much... I'm so glad French is working for me 100%.

 

Jay, what I like most in H8 menu is the customization of the modes.

to have 8 quick custom presets for each mode is fantastic and a game-changing in how easy is to switch between.

 

to take the full advantage of this presets, maybe voice commands to jump to the presets?

e.g.   "Gopro preset bike?" --- to switch to Bike presetting

 

just an idea

 

have a good one!

robert
