I have been jumping between regions to adjust the language recognition.  I've found for my accent the regions worked from best to worst British English -> US English -> Australian English.

Edit:  For clarity I'm not in the preview, I was just setting my xb1 to the 'wrong' region to enable voice.

I have a British accent but its is a strong dialect.  For something like the Xbox 1 and all of its processing power, I am really surprised that they never implemented a voice training program - considering there has been one in windows for quite some time.

Does the Australian one actually support the "On" command yet?

Seriously?  How hard can it be to support one word - "On"?  So in other words I have to continue to leave my console set to US just so I can tell it to turn on.
