Microsoft Kinect Voice Data Collection Opt-out

I'm not sure what the default setting was for "Microsoft Voice Data Collection" setting inside the Xbox Custom Online Safety Settings screen, but I deleted the software and "blocked" it.

Microsoft says they only want the Kinect command words with ambient sound to improve recognition accuracy but I don't want any part of it.  The software itself can be deleted from the system memory management menu, also saving a few hundred megs on the HD.  This was my initial approach, and caused the lack of default setting knowledge.
