    Hello, does anymore know how Cortana deals with different voice tones/volume. When driving sometimes I have to served a text. My phone is beside me so I have to yell ' Hey Cortana ' and dictate my message. It works about 50% of the time. While at home when quiet works a lot better. Does Cortana learn? Our know of a better way? Btw I send messages rarely when driving and never pick up the phone. Mr. V

    Wasn't there an option to "train" Cortana to respond to your voice? If you "train" her to recognize your voice while you're yelling, then chances are you would get responses for a yell but not under normal speaking tones.

    Also, ambient sound levels affect accuracy of recognition and response. Most phones come with a secondary microphone (usually located near the earpiece) that assists in noise-cancelling, but that requires the user to speak near the main mouth piece - otherwise the user's voice would be interpreted as "noise" since the volume in the main mouthpiece will be similar to the volume in the noise-cancelling secondary microphone, and the accuracy of recognition and frequency of response will decrease.

    Background noise and Hey Cortana are definitely a conflict.

    Hey Cortana worked better for me when I have the primary bottom microphone pointing towards my mouth. The top microphone does a decent job of cancelling background noises.

    I do have the train option on. I hope it's continuing evolving.
