    As far i know the only international support (for win os) is Microsoft Speech Platform already used on some speech recognition tools, but it might be not supported on Win8
    (i'm using it on win7)

    I made a Video of my latest carcp progress, and it shows some of the voice commands working in Driveline:

    Skip to 1:30 into the video to see just the voice commands in action...




    As far as other voice commands to add, I think would help are:

    "Switch Source"... Because Switch HD only works 1 in 10 tries. I spoke that command into windows speech to text to see what it is hearing, and there are too many "pitch as thee" and other things interpreted.

    Also, would it be hard to add a speech to text box that pops up when we press the talk button, that we can have show what the speech recognition hears, as it would help in training us to speak our commands more successfully.

    Another feature that might be cool is if we could save multiple playlists, and have saved favorites in each. Then a "Switch Playlist" command would really be cool.

    You can save playlists. And the Favorites are global. So if you mark a song as a favorite, and then later open a playlist with that song in it, it will still be marked as a favorite.

    Try "Open playlist" followed by the name of the playlist. DriveLine will search the "My Playlists" folder for a match.

    I'm not in the best frame of mind at the moment. Just broke up, had a few drinks, about to smoke my feelings away for the night.. But hey, DriveLine always gets better when I have nothing else distracting me.

    EDIT: Also, thanks for the plug. It's awesome to see DriveLine being used to its full potential.

    I found that as long as the windows are rolled up, the speech recognition is working great, even when I have the air conditioner fan up full blast. I am really liking voicehose tie commands and the AI's turn by turn directions in the newest test version.

    I would like to request one more feature if possible, would like to have a voice training screen that shows what the voice recognition hears for times she don't understand what I am saying. Like a practice screen that echo's back the spoken command in text form with a large font for easy reading.

    I am thinking a voice training button that opens a screen that has the Voice Command button and a text window to display what is heard, so we can teach our voice to speak correctly. I have trouble switching to some playlists, one named BOM and one named DNC are difficult to get to come up through voice commands. Maybe new commands "Next Playlist", "Previous Playlist", and "Random Playlist", in addition to of "Switch Playlist XXXX"

    rray have you gone through the windows training process? That may help with fine tuning your voice. SNO

    I'm going to explain a little bit about how speech recognition works in Windows.

    First, the speech recognition system is loaded with a grammar set. It can be a small list of words, or an entire language. This is what it uses to try to determine what you're actually saying.

    Second, when the program hears something and needs to determine what those words are, the speech recognition system actually forms a bunch of different guesses of what it thinks you said, and sorts it based on which it thinks is the most likely.

    So, DriveLine loads up the grammar for your default language, and also adds specific words and commands into the grammar, for better recognition of commands.

    The next thing I want to do is to have DriveLine read the names of playlists and media files, and add those names into the grammar as well. This will help with accessing media via voice commands.

    One thing that speech recognition is going to struggle with is knowing the difference between "B.O.M." (pronounced bee oh emm) and "BOM" (pronounced bomb). Acronyms are problematic unless they are punctuated with periods.

    So, while I think that a "here's what I heard" kind of box would be useful, I don't think it would really convey everything that's going into determining what you said. Technically, you can use the OSK for this right now to test. But ultimately, I think that some additional programming to enhance the expected words in the grammar set is going to help a lot.

    Yes I have gone through the training several times, but I did not realize I need to add a period after each letter in an acronym. That might solve my problem.

    If I could highlight a song name or playlist name and have the AI read it to me, then I would know that it interpreted it as "Bomb" instead of "Bee Oh Emm" then in the future I would know what to say.

    Most of the time the AI can tell what I am saying just fine, but I suspect sometimes I am throwing it for a loop. Most of the time If I ask the AI to "Play Good Time" it will play that song for me, but every so often it says "I did not understand what you want" or similar.

    I have looked in the log file, but that only records that I issued a voice command, not what command was asked, so it makes it hard to tell what was interpreted. I think knowing what was interpreted would help the speaker get perfect with issuing voice commands.

    I can live with things just fine as they are, I'm just throwing things out that I think might be helpful for everyone who is planning on experimenting with voice commands. I will say this, once you start using voice commands, you will not want to do without it. It is so convenient, and has a real "Cool Factor" about it.

    "One thing that speech recognition is going to struggle with is knowing the difference between "B.O.M." (pronounced bee oh emm) and "BOM" (pronounced bomb). Acronyms are problematic unless they are punctuated with periods."

    Is it possible to have a custom dictionary?

    So when you say "play B52's" a box pops up "did you say?"

    bee fifty two's
    B52's
    B-52's
    be 50 to's

    etc.....

    You select the correct one and it memorizes it in a custom library for next time.

    MS Word offers this with "add to dictionary" when it thinks you you mis-spelled a word.

    Possible? Yes.
    Practical? Not sure.

    Ultimately though, I don't really want to manage a dictionary like that unless it's absolutely necessary. I'll keep it in mind though. But I still think that adding the current playlists and media items into the grammar set will be the next step to improving the speech recognition for media-related voice commands.

    At some point, I might move the internal hard-coded words-list into a separate file, so that people can play with it if they want to.
