What is GameChanger Voice Scorekeeping?
On the new GameChanger app, basketball scorekeepers can use their voice to score plays, allowing them to keep up with the fast-paced action without missing a play. You can watch a video tutorial on this feature here.
How does it work?
Once you’ve entered scorekeeping mode, you can score plays through voice input by following these steps:
- Tap and hold the blue microphone button
- Dictate the play into the phone
- Release the microphone button
What do I say?
2 points number four = a made 2PT FG will be scored for #4 on your team
2 point miss number four = a missed 2PT FG will be assigned to #4 on your team
Rebound opponent = a rebound will be credited to the opposing team
Free throw miss number one, rebound opponent = FT miss will be assigned to #1 on your team and the rebound will be assigned to the opposing team
3 points number two, assist number one = a made 3PT FG will be scored for #2 on your team and an assist will be given to #1
sub number 15 = if #15 is on the court, this will place them on the bench. If #15 is on the bench, this will place them on the court
The app will be listening for words it recognizes in order to create the correct play. For the best and fastest results stick to these commands:
[Available for your team and opponent]
two pointer= +2 points make
three pointer= +3 points make
free throw make,
free throw= free throw make
free throw miss= free throw miss
substitution= add or remove a player from the game
[Available for your team only]
two point miss,
missed two points,
missed two pointer= 2 point miss
three point miss,
missed three points,
missed three pointer= 3 point miss
To help the app properly assign the above commands, use the following format when speaking to the app:
[stat] (if assigning play at the team level)
[jersey number] →
[”opponent” or “away”/”home”](if tracking player stats)
[”opponent” or “away”/”home”] (if assigning play at the team level)
You only need to specify the team for opponent stats. For your own team, you can just say the play and jersey number of the player
- On first use, you will be prompted to give GC permission to use the device microphone and/or speech recognition
- Make a mistake? You can use our play editing tools to undo or fix any errors
