Voice Commands 2.0
I can’t mention voice commands, and more specifically Voice Attack, without mentioning HCS Voice Packs.
Rather than relying on Window’s text-to-speak software, it puts your voice of voice (or voices, if you wish) into your Elite: Dangerous voice pack experience. This is an Elite: Dangerous mod that you simply have to do – it’s compulsory!
Packs range from £9.99 but the voices are incredible. A.S.T.R.A is a slightly sexy robotic sounding female voice which is the standard offering and is built upon with each update to the game.
But, what if you want more than that?
They have a selection of official celebrity voice response packs to choose from – not voice actors, the real deals. Sci-fi legends who have given their voices to the projects include stars from Red Dwarf, Star Trek, Doctor Who, Flash Gordon, Blake’s 7, Star Wars and more.
Who do you want as your co-pilot: William Shatner, Tom Baker, Brent Spiner, Brian Blessed, John De Lancie..?
There are numerous others – and they are professionally recorded to fit Elite: Dangerous (and a few other games), not awkwardly ripped from the movies and TV shows they have starred in.
