Using Voice Commands
Voice command are a useful and effective way for activating application functionality, for accessibility reasons, or when you’ve got your hands full.
When signing into the SketchUp Viewer app for the first time, you have the option to enable voice commands. In order to enable voice commands, you’ll then need to grant SketchUp Viewer the ability to access your device’s microphone. More information is available in the article about Setting up SketchUp Viewer for HoloLens.
If you decided to pass on enabling voice commands when you first launched SketchUp Viewer, you can enable them later, by toggling them on in the About panel as shown in Fig. 1 below.
Fig. 1. The About panel offers the option to toggle Voice Commands on or off.
