    How do I turn off the Siri-like "selected" voice on the menu?


    This computer voice just showed up on my home menu the other day and reads to me every time I move the cursor. I've looked all through settings and can't find where to turn off the voice. It is incredibly annoying. I am not blind and I know how to read,
    but thanks anyway.

    :)

    Siri is so unreliable and annoying. You will eventually turn her off. Unless of course you like to dig your phone out of your pocket every ten minutes when she decides to activate herself even while your phone is locked!

    LOL

    Your Avatar even looks a bit like Kripke.

    My Siri has always worked fine, but then so has my Kinect.

  3. Voice commands - no response

    I am finding that the voice command "xbox turn off" gives me the option boxes "yes" and "no" but after that no response Also the voice command to turn on is about 50/50 in regards to operating as it should

    You should also be able to turn the feature off by holding the Xbox button on the controller to bring up the shut down screen and then just press the Menu button on the controller.

    X1 voice search program will be voiced by Cortana

    This is what I was hoping for with regards to X1 voice commands. Needs to be more natural like Siri.

    Kinect voice commands will not work since cortina installed.

    Hey, so Cortana works a bit differently than the old voice commands, they no longer work. With everything you do with her start out the command with "Hey, Cortana" It's kinda like talking to siri. Just make sure she's turned on in the settings first.
