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.
