When I first started playing F1 2018 (Steam - PC) I did not like the idea of having the voice command software installed (or see the need for it), so when the game was installing I skipped the installation for that bit of software.

Now, however, I'm at the point where I want to be communicating with the team, but finding it really difficult to select the option from the L1 menu (using xbox controller). I need to have a really long straight so I can select the correct option, as it's too difficult when also steering. This can be problematic on circuits without many long straights.

Does anyone know how I can now get this installed and setup? (Without reinstalling preferably)

I tried verifying the cache but it doesn't seem to trigger the installation.

  • When installed through Steam, (stand-alone) auxiliary software (like Visual Basic runtime and DirectX) can usually be found inside the game's installation folder. Have you checked to see if the voice control component is present there? – Joachim Oct 14 '19 at 13:58
  • @Joachim I'll have a look when I'm at home and report back! – Smock Oct 14 '19 at 14:51
