Using the system

Initialization

When the ignition switch is pushed to the ON position, NISSAN Voice Recognition is initialized, which may take up to one minute. When completed, the system is ready to accept voice commands. If the TALK pushed switch is pushed before the initialization completes, the display will show the message: “System not ready.” or a beep sounds.

Before starting

To get the best recognition performance from NISSAN Voice Recognition, observe the following:

The interior of the vehicle should be as quiet as possible. Close the windows to eliminate the surrounding noises (traffic noise and vibration sounds, etc.), which may prevent the system from correctly recognizing the voice commands.
Wait until the tone sounds before speaking a command.
Speak in a natural conversational voice without pausing between words.
If the air conditioner is set to “Auto”, the fan speed is automatically lowered so that your commands can be recognized more easily.

Giving voice commands

Giving voice commands

1. Push the TALK on the switch located on the steering wheel.

2. A list of commands appears on the screen,

2. A list of commands appears on the screen, and the system announces, “Would you like to access Phone, Navigation, Information, Audio or Help?”.
3. After the tone sounds and the icon on the screen changes from, speak a  to command., speak a command.

Selecting the “Practice” key will start the practice mode. See “Let’s Practice” earlier in this section.

4. Continue to follow the voice menu prompts and speak after the tone sounds until your desired operation is completed.

Selecting the “Help” key can display the detailed information of the each command.

Operating tips:

Say a command after the tone.
Commands that are available are always shown on the display and spoken through voice menu prompts. Commands other than those that are displayed are not accepted.

Please follow the prompts given by the system.
If the command is not recognized, the system announces, “Please say again”.

Repeat the command in a clear voice.
Push the BACK button once to return to the previous screen.
To exit the voice recognition system, push and hold the TALK message, switch. The message, “Voice canceled” will be announced.
To skip the voice guidance function and give the command immediately, press the TALK switch to interrupt the system. Remember switch to interrupt the system. Remember to speak after the tone.
If you want to adjust the volume of the system feedback, push the volume control buttons [+] or [−] on the steering switch or use the audio system volume knob while the system is making an announcement.

How to speak numbers:

NISSAN Voice Recognition requires a certain way to speak numbers when giving voice commands. Refer to the following examples.

General rule

Only single digits 0 (zero) to 9 can be used. (For example, if you would like to say 500, “five zero zero” can be used, but “five hundred” cannot.)

Examples

1-800-662-6200
— “One eight zero zero six six two six two zero zero”

Improving Recognition of Phone numbers

You can improve the recognition of phone numbers by saying the phone number in three groups of numbers. For example, when you try to call 800-662-6200, say “eight zero zero” first, and the system will then ask you for the next three digits. Then, say “six six two”. After recognition, the system will then ask for the last four digits. Say, “six two zero zero”. Using this method of phone digit entry can improve recognition performance.

When speaking a house number, speak the number “0” as “zero”. If the letter “o (oh)” is included in the house number, it will not be recognized as the number “0 (zero)” even if you speak “oh” instead of “zero”. Please speak “zero” for the number “0 (zero)”, “oh” for the letter “o (oh)”.

Send digits using dial tone:

Press the TALK switch during a phone call.
The menu will be launched and you will be provided with the following guidance: "Please say the digits to dial".
After guidance, say the digits of the number you want to send. After this, the digits that have been recognized will be read out.
If you press the ENTER button on the steering wheel or on the multifunction controller, the selected digits will be sent.

Voice command examples

Voice command examples

To use the NISSAN Voice Recognition function, speaking one command is sometimes sufficient, but at other times it is necessary to speak two or more commands. As examples, some additional basic operations by voice commands are described here.

For navigation system commands, see the separate Navigation System Owner’s Manual.

Example 1 - Placing a call to the phone

Example 1 - Placing a call to the phone number 800-662-6200:

1. Push the TALK on the switch located on the steering wheel.

10. The system announces, “Dial or Change Number?”
11. Speak “Dial”.
12. The system makes a call to 800-662-6200.

NOTE:

You can also speak “800-662-6200” (10 continuous digits) or “662-6200” (7 continuous digits), if the area code is not necessary. However, the 3-3-4 digit grouping is recommended for improved recognition. (See “Giving voice commands” earlier in this section.)
You can only say a phone number using the 3-3-4 grouping, 7 digits, and 10 digits using this command. Please use the “International Call” command for all other formats.
If you say “Change Number” during phone number entry, the system will automatically request that you repeat the number using the 3-3-4 format. In this case please say the area code first and then follow the prompts.
Do not add a “1” in front of the area code when speaking phone numbers.
If the system does not recognize your command, please try repeating the command using a natural voice. Speaking too slow or too loudly may further decrease recognition performance.
