    Fun with Cortana


    Here's a short vid of Cortana in action on Build 9926, albeit in 'Her' limited capacity!
    Mostly the standard funny stuff cuz 'she' sucks at performing the real tasks as of yet!
    Enjoy.

    Thanks for making that video Edwin it sure helps those of us living outside the US that still have no access to Cortana understand her intended purpose & function.

    No probs guys!
    There is quite a few things you have to engage, allow or enable before 'She' will work to her full potential, except in this build, which is frustrating because it worked 10 times better in Build 9901!
    Oh well, better days a-comin!

    Yeah, blurting that out over and over again is stupid; you can click on the mic icon or press + Q.

    Was interesting. Thanks Edwin for making it. How much 'training time' did that require. You think it will accept a German accent.

    The 'training time' is kind of hard to pin point because 'she' seemed to 'learn' faster and more properly in Build 9901!
    Also switching from the 'Continuum' UI to the 'Resizable' UI or Start Screen UI messes everything up. There is 3 or 4 search related processes that have to remain embedded in background processes and they don't when you switch back and forth. It's like 'she' has to learn all over again so I stay on the Continuum Menu UI.
    Also, you yourself have to learn how to phrase your questions, apparently.
    As far as the German accent is concerned, this may or may not contribute; I'm not sure though.

    Thanks Edwin. Sounds like it is still a bit finagle. Long time ago I tried speech input, but that was also very tiresome for the training sessions. This must be similar.
