Skype’s FREETALK® Everyman USB Headset
If you intend to use the Robodance/Roboclient Voice Control System which allows you to control your robot using speech commands, you will need a good headset. The number one cause of problems with voice control is a poor headset. Skype has done us a huge favor and now sells their own truly inexpensive yet high quality headset complete with microphone and speakers. Note: some of the bluetooth cell phone ear pieces put out a lot of noise which can really impact the accuracy of the Voice Control System. Go ahead and try one if you have it, but if you have problems, remember this page and return to it to get the Skype FREETALK® Everyman USB Headset. Bookmark this page.
