Hi,
I'm making an C# application that uses the Kinects Skeletal tracking and its voice recognition as an method of input. I've got to a point where the application uses skeletal data to position a cursor and I'm trying to integrate voice commands.
I have run into a problem, where I have created and started the speech recogniser but I can't get the react to any audio inputs ( display whether the speech command was recognised).
Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks.
