Amulet recognizes commands, but accuracy is poor PDF Print E-mail
Troubleshooting

Here are some tips to improve overall accuracy:

Make sure you speak clearly and precisely; imagine you are a newsreader reading the evening news, or a radio announcer.

Leave a slight pause before and after commands.

Remember to lower the remote when you are not talking; this blocks any ambient background noise that can interfere with the speech recognition.

Amulet's speech recognizer trains itself to match your voice over time, so the more you use the system, the more accurate it will become. If you regularly use Amulet in a very noisy environment, you can turn off learning mode to prevent Amulet "learning" background noise as valid commands, over time. See the Amulet Settings section for more information.

If Amulet often misinterprets what you say, you may be operating in a particularly noisy environment. You can configure a command prefix word, such as COMPUTER or AMULET on the Amulet Settings page. All valid commands must then begin with this prefix word, which makes it easier for Amulet to ignore nonsense input and improves overall accuracy. (This is usually only required in rare circumstances.)

If several people in your household share an Amulet remote, and have very different voices, you may wish to give each user their own speech profile. See the Working with Speech Profiles section of the User Guide for more information about this.

Music Commands

PLAY SONG {SONG NAME}
PLAY SONG NUMBER {NUM}

SHOW SONG {SONG NAME}
SHOW SONG NUMBER {NUM}

Plays or shows a particular song by the currently selected artist.

{SONG NAME}

The name of a song in your music library by the most recently selected musical artist or band. For example, to listen to Beautiful Day by U2, you first select the artist with PLAY ARTIST U2 and then select the song, PLAY SONG BEAUTIFUL DAY.

If the song title is long, you can say only part of the song name and Amulet will find the best match.

{NUM}

When the song panel is displayed on the Amulet music page, each song listed has a number. You can select a song simply by saying the number of the song you want to choose, as an alternative to using its name.

If the song window isn’t visible, just say SHOW SONGS to open it.

EXAMPLES

PLAY SONG SOMETHING SO STRONG
PLAY SONG NUMBER 6

PLAY SOMETHING ELSE
PLAY ANOTHER SONG

Begins playing a randomly selected song by the currently selected artist. Use this when you are tired of the current song and want to quickly choose something else.

SHOW SOMETHING ELSE
SHOW ANOTHER SONG

Selects a song in the song window at random by the currently selected artist.
