It’s been a long time since we updated our competition tracking service, but today we’re pleased to announce a major improvement for all Loquax users.! Voice Activated Competition Tracking (VACT) is a simple but effective way for you to manage your competition entries whilst using Loquax as before.
As Loquax means ‘talkative’ in latin, we thought wouldn’t it be cool if you could track competitions simply by voice control – and VACT was born.
To use VACT you just need a microphone on your computer.
Plug it in, and make sure it’s working (the sound setting needs to be at least 75%). Now all you have to do is enter competitions as usual, the only difference is you need to say “Track It” into the microphone before you’ve clicked the link.
Our system will pick up your voice activated tracking and make a note of the next competition link you choose to visit. That’s it – you’ve used VACT! If at any time you want to untrack the competition just say “Untrack It” then click the link again – and we’ll update the information so that the competition appears untracked.
VACT is already in place on the site, but to test whether your PC is compatible why not give it a try now?
1. Say “Track It” now into your PC’s microphone!
2. Simply enter a competition. E.g. win an HD Ready TV.
If all goes to plan you’ll have tracked your first competition with the brand new VACT system!
We’ll be rolling out more features for VACT over the next few weeks, but for now give it a try and let us know any bugs or issues that you encounter. We appreciate there may be a few teething problems but we have done extensive testing on a variety of browsers, ISPs and computer systems.
