Does the voice recognition on my TV work in a noisy area?

Last modified : Apr 05. 2019

Voice recognition using built-in microphone on the TV can pick up your voice as long as it’s 60dB and above, however, the background noise must be lower than 40dB.


If these condition are not met and the background noise exceeds 40dB then the Voice recognition may not work properly as the TV will have difficulty trying to determine your Voice.


dB is the measure of sound level, in other words it is how loud a sound is, below is a list of different sound levels for reference:

Weakest sound heard                    0dB

Whisper Quiet Library                 30dB

Normal conversation            60-65dB

Telephone dial tone                     80dB

City Traffic (inside car)                85dB

Jackhammer                                   95dB
