Voice Recognition For Nintendo Wii


The latest "rumors on the internet" revolve around advanced voice recognition for Wii. Speech recognition is always a tricky thing to master, and if true, the program "Hear Say Today" will have an uphill battle.

After all, if you say "Wii" into a headphone, there's a myriad of different spellings that can reasonably be surmised. The alleged patent for this technology can be read here, but our favorite titled website Moz La Punk has plucked out the juicy bits that were posted on the IGN insider forums.

"…voice communication will be via wireless, head-mounted microphones. Some peripherals for the DS will be compatible with Wii and vice-versa.”

"Many Nintendo first party games (specifically games designed for a younger audience) will feature a new system currently being developed by Nintendo called ‘voice to text communication."

"The system works using an advanced voice recognition system which Nintendo has been developing for several years. When a user speaks the sound is converted into on screen text and sent to the other players. However, rather than just plain text being sent the system also picks up the tone, pitch and volume of the voice and translates that into colour, font size and character set. For example, if a player shouts ‘I win’ loudly into the microphone the on screen text may be all capitalized, and in a large red font; conversely if a player speaks quietly the font may be a pastel shade and smaller."

"This system also allows online voice communication to be easily censored by the user."

We'd love to see this become a reality, but we have our doubts at the moment. Nintendo Wii News will keep you updated.
