Using Wildcard with Grammar Builder – Kinect Speech Recognition

By | January 18, 2014

Developing a speech enabled application using Kinect for Windows SDK is really fun. To build an extensive Kinect based speech enabled application along with dynamically loading and unloading grammar, use of wildcard is tremendous important. With the use of wildcard, we can ignore of the speech for whose we really don’t not care about. This work in an exactly… Read More »

Dynamically Loading/Unloading Grammar – Kinect Speech Recognition Engine

By | January 6, 2014
