The app will first walk you through teaching the app how you say “Hello.” Once it learns that word and you get a feel for how the app works, you can continue to explore the rest of the app!

After unlocking hello, you will be able to explore the two modes of Voiceitt: Conversation and Smart Home. Each has its own dictionary and set of scenarios. You can switch between the two by using the toggle at the top.

Yubi's tips:

  • The 2 text boxes do not have to match, unless you want. The purpose of the mismatch is to create easy shortcuts. For example: you say "Burger" and the app says "Can I have a burger please?"
  • Complete training an entire scenario & use it in the real world!

Troubleshooting
