Voice clips are audio recordings of what you say when you use your voice to interact with Microsoft products and services. When you use your voice to interact with Microsoft products, speech recognition technology automatically generates the audio of what you say into words so that the Microsoft services can respond.
You can also choose to contribute voice clips to help improveÂ voice typing. If you choose not to contribute voice clips, you can still use voice typing. You can change your settings anytime in voice typing settings. If youâ€™re using a work or school account, the ability to share voice data isnâ€™t available, but you can still use voice typing.
Microsoft uses voice clips to help train speech recognition technology to be better, more accurate, and more precise for you and everyone who speaks your language. For example, your everyday use of Microsoft voice-enabled products helps speech recognition models to learn and better recognize complex and nuanced aspects of how people talkâ€”like accents or regional dialects, and how sentences are structured in different languages. Sampling voice clips also helps Microsoft make their technology better at understanding speech in different acoustic settingsâ€”like when thereâ€™s a lot of ambient noise versus when things are quiet. These improvements allow Microsoft to build better voice-enabled capabilities that benefit users across all Microsoft products and services.
This tutorial will show you how to start or stop contributing your voice clips to Microsoft for your account in Windows 11.
