This ‘Skyrim VR’ Mod Uses Voice Recognition So You Can Speak to NPCs


Talking to non-playable characters (NPCs) in Skyrim VR may be easy—requiring a quick selection from the dialogue menu—but it isn’t exactly an immersive way of interacting with the world though. With a new speech recognition mod, called Dragonborn Speaks Naturally, all of that changes.

The Dragonborn Speaks Naturally mod allows you to do just that—choose the dialogue option you think fits best by reciting it naturally. This essentially lets you add your own voice to where a voiceless protagonist once stood, letting you truly put yourself into the +25 Armor Daedric boots of the Dragonborn.

DSN works by hooking directly into the Skyrim code where the dialogue menu is updated. It also starts a background service to handle the speech recognition. When the background service identifies the dialogue line, the Skyrim hooks execute to select the spoken line.

The mod works with both Skyrim VR and Skyrim Special Edition, but because it directly hooks into Skyrim, it will be prone to breakage when when/if Bethesda push updates.

“I will try to keep this mod up to date with the latest version of SkyrimVR and SkyrimSE as quickly as possible,” says Cuebit.

You can download the mod here.


1. Install xSHADOWMANx’s Dll Loader
2. Download the latest archive and extract it to your SkyrimVR/SkyrimSE directory (where SkyrimVR.exe/SkyrimSE.exe is)
3. (Optional) If you need to set your language locale for your needs, the default is your system-installed language. This can be changed by modifying the /Data/Plugins/Sumwunn/DragonbornSpeaksNaturally.ini file and restarting the game.
