Amulet Settings, options and their meanings

Listener PDF Print E-mail

These settings all relate to how Amulet recognizes spoken commands.

Speaker’s Profile

Shows the currently active speech profile. You can cycle through all available speech profiles here.

Default: Default Speech Profile

Spoken Command Prefix

If you find Amulet is constantly interpreting background noise as valid commands, you can configure a special command word to be used at the start of every spoken command. This helps to reduce false matches, though is usually not needed.

Default: empty (no command prefix)

Learn Speaker’s Voice

As you use Amulet, it gradually adjusts its recognition to better match the sound of your voice. This usually works well, but if you are using Amulet in a crowded venue, where many different speakers will be trying it out, you may wish to turn learning off.

Default: On

Show Speech Commands

Controls whether speech commands are shown on the Amulet screens as they are recognized. If you prefer not to have commands displayed, turn this option off.

Default: On

Spoken Commands Confidence Level

Amulet assigns a confidence level from 30%‐100% for each recognized command. The confidence level is shown above the microphone meter in the lower left corner of the screen when you are viewing Amulet pages. If the confidence level is below the value set here, then Amulet will ignore the command rather than risk misinterpreting it.

Default: 70%

Music Commands Confidence Level

Music artists, albums and song names can be more esoteric than normal spoken English, so Amulet uses a separate confidence level when determining whether a PLAY ARTIST, PLAY ALBUM or PLAY SONG command is valid.

Default: 60%

Profile Commands Confidence Level

When you use the command THIS IS {PROFILE NAME} to switch to a different profile, your own preferred profile is not yet active. Amulet uses a more relaxed confidence level for this command to improve the chance of successfully recognizing it even when speakers have very different voices.

Default: 30%

Panel Options

Controls which regions of the Amulet Movie and TV screens have panel highlights displayed. Choose from All, Info (highlight only the information panel), Menu (highlight only the media menu) or None.

Default: All

Numbered Lists

If this is turned on, the Amulet media screens include numbers beside each menu item to make it easy to select media by number as well as by name.

Default: On

Show Totals for Lists

Normally, submenu names on the Amulet media screens include the number of items on the submenu beside the name. For a cleaner look, you can turn these totals off.

Default: On

Recognize Partial Song and Album Names

Recognize Partial TV and Movie Names

Recognize Partial Photo Names

Song, album, and video title names can often be quite long. Amulet allows you to select items for playback by speaking only part of the name. If you prefer to always say the full name, you can turn these options off for improved accuracy.

Default: On

Default Music Page

Controls what Amulet does if you ask it to play music while you are watching a TV program or movie. Start Menu returns to the Media Center start page, Amulet Music displays the Amulet music page, and None returns to the page that was active before the video playback began.

Default: None
