Speech recognition

General information

Embedded speech recognition

This application is only applicable to

Multimedia Navi Pro.
The embedded speech recognition of

the Infotainment system enables

operation of various functions of the

Infotainment system via voice input. It

recognises commands and numeric

sequences. The commands and

numeric sequences can be spoken

without a voice pause between the

individual words.
In the event of incorrect operation or

commands, the speech recognition

gives visual and / or acoustic

feedback and requests to re-enter the

desired command. Apart from this,

the speech recognition

acknowledges important commands

and will enquire if necessary.
In general, there are different ways to

speak commands for performing the

desired actions.



Infotainment system


To ensure that conversations inside

the vehicle do not lead to

unintentional triggering of the

system functions, the speech

recognition does not start until it has

been activated.
The system can only be operated by

the driver.

Important information

Language support

● Not all languages available for

the Info Display are also

available for the speech


● If the display language currently

selected is not supported by the

speech recognition, speech

recognition is not available.
In such a case, selecting another

language is necessary to control

the Infotainment system via voice


Address input of destination

Address input is only possible in the

language of the country of your


E.g., for entering an address in

France, the display and the speech

recognition must be set to French.


For a multilingual country, several

languages can be used.
E.g. French, German or Italian can

be used for Switzerland.

Input order for destination addresses

The order in which the parts of an

address need to be entered using the

speech recognition system is

dependent on the country where the

destination is located.


The system only works with

complete addresses. The city and

the street need to be entered.

Setting up speech recognition

Several settings and adaptions for the

embedded speech recognition of the

Infotainment system can be

performed, such as the frequency of

command confirmations by the user

or the level of detailed feedback given

by the system.

To set up speech recognition, select

Settings on the homescreen and then

System I Voice.

Prompt Length

The prompt length can be set to either

Informative, Short or Auto. When set

to Auto, the system provides more

detailed feedback in the beginning of

its first usage. The system adjusts

automatically to your speech habits.

The more familiar you are with the

system, the less detailed feedback is

given by the system.
To set up the prompt length, select

Settings on the homescreen and then

System I Voice I Prompt Length.

Voice pass-thru application
