A new speech recognition pack has launched today, allowing games such as Call of Duty: Black Ops, World of Warcraft, Second Life and Microsoft Flight Simulator to be controlled using voice.
Using the Dragon Gaming Speech Pack, players can perform auxiliary commands with voice while continuing to control primary game action with the mouse, keyboard or controller.
Gamers can move, reload, jump, open doors, flee and much more – all using voice commands.
“Many of today’s popular PC games have the production quality of Hollywood blockbusters, creating a realistic gaming experience, combining the latest in graphics, sound, special effects and story-telling to create an emotionally-charged and mesmerising game play experience,” said Peter Mahoney, senior vice president and general manager, Dragon, Nuance.
“Given the real-world environment the games create, using something as natural as speech recognition creates a truly immersive experience for gamers. Using speech is far easier than learning multiple keystrokes, resulting in intuitive, quicker and more competitive game play.”
The pack costs £99.99 – more can be found here.
