DesktopWeb FormText   speech reco on the XBox 360Thu, 21 Dec 2006 13:56:12 GMT # 

looks like Rainbox Six Vegas is the first Xbox 360 game to get speech recognition built-in using Fonix's VoiceIn technology. er, um ... but why isn't MS just making SAPI available to game developers? and with all the headsets that are out there, adding speech reco to gaming makes perfect sense; with the added benefit of simplifying controls. e.g. there are only so many buttons you can put on a gamepad, but you can provide many more speech commands which could have complex grammars to perform complex in-game actions. anyway, i hope SAPI is ultimately exposed through XNA
