Grid 3 now enables people to activate cells using their voice. Just say ‘Hey Grid 3’ and you can then say which cell to activate. This is a great way to access Environment Control.

Hey Grid 3 is a new alternative access option for people with speech who would like to control their environment. It enables Grid 3 to listen to what you are saying and when it hears you say a phrase or word that is written on a cell, it makes that selection.

The new feature has been created using the latest voice recognition technology available from Microsoft and comes with a selection of ready-to-go resources for environment control. You can add these to your Grid Explorer dashboard from within Grid 3 or download them from Online Grids.
