VALORANT Presents Voice Evaluation Update
Riot Games have announced the launch of a voice evaluation system in Valorant.
This April, Riot Games updated its Privacy Notice and Terms of Service to allow us to record and evaluate in-game voice communications when a report for that type of behavior is submitted—with the goal of kicking this off in VALORANT first.
Voice evaluation would provide a way to collect clear evidence that could verify any violations of behavioral policies before we can take any action. This would also help us share back to players why a particular action resulted in a penalty, - Riot Games said in a statement.
Next month, on July 13, a background launch of the voice evaluation system in North America/English-only will begin to help train our language models and get the tech in a good enough place for a beta launch later this year.
Voice evaluation during this period will not be used for disruptive behavior reports. That will only begin with the future beta. And we know that before we can even think of expanding this tool, we’ll have to be confident it’s effective, and if mistakes happen, we have systems in place to make sure we can correct any false positives (or negatives for that matter).
