    Hey I'm from Australia.. my MBP doesn't seem to want to listen unless I'm speaking american :D

    Words like pop, Show me what to say, etc..

    Is there any way to get it to listen for Australian accents? or perhaps I've not calibrated it correctly I don't know, I did do that for a bit though and got it working (using the internal mic)

    Kind Regards

    I have the same problem with a British accent. If I speak like an American it works, but then I feel ridiculous (no offence :eek:)

    Any ideas would be great, ta

    Yeah, I feel silly too, I try and put on an american accent, have to check no one is near me when I do :eek:

    I tried a few others too lol It would be awesome if you could change the accent for it :O

    Kind Regards
