Xbox One Kinect voice control only available in 8 languages

Still curious to know if Ireland falls under the "UK" banner. It'd seem strange to me if the UK was included but not Ireland.

Seems they're really having last minute issues with the voice side of the kinect. They really need to publish some good news about the kinect to avoid some potential backlash about now. Maybe an article about how one of the new games uses it that we haven't seen yet?

Wewe utani, lakini kuna pengine mtu (hata Kizulu) kufanya hasa kwamba. Licha ya Kizulu si lugha ni kundi ya kimbari. Wao wanazungumza swahili :wink:

yes it is releasing in ireland but its not the uk banner, its europe, i checked the other but dont have a link. but then again, some irish accents are a different language so not sure how the kinect voice recognition would work here....

What, no Welsh. Well that's unfair I think.

Completely irrelevant, but I did like the news story that popped up on the BBC News website this week (even though the story was curiously five years old...) in which Swansea council put up a road sign in English and Welsh, completely oblivious to the fact that they hadn't quite got the translation they were after. The English read "No entry for goods vehicles, residential site only"; they emailed their translation request, and put the response on the sign. Unfortunately, the Welsh translation on the sign erected actually read "I am not in the office at the moment. Send any work to be translated".

Who'd have thought an out-of-office reply could cause so much confusion? :D
