  • messenger??

    I am by no means saying that whilst driving Im going to be using msn messenger, however, I have been thinking now for some time whether it is possible to incorporate the messenger into roadrunner and a skin. Im attending a few shows this year, and a fair couple are weekenders and also there are a few other situations in which I would like to be able to use messenger within, also with the possibility of some sort of voice regonition to type msgs (prob a shot in the dark that this could even be done, however, the mind is never happy). Does anyone have info on controlling msn within roadrunner or could point me in the right direction to look? Or tell me to sod off if nots not even possible! Im not talkin totall control just to start a convo with someone etc.

    As far as total integration goes, it sounds interesting. personally, I'm happy using my messenger within my webbrowsing skin with the osk. As far as speech goes, there is already a conscious effort by WhodWho to add a dictation method of Speech Recognition to his RR modification. If you aren't familar with his mod, dig up the thread, its close by. The Speech Recognition so far is coming along quite nicely and is reallly quite capable. Its also very simple and really light on system processes!
    Its not the cards you're dealt, its how you play the hand!

        if you want to use speach, why not just start an audio convo in msn, and just talk? That way your hands are free to do whatever and its easier than any other option that requires typeing in a car unless u have a fullsize keyboard.

            because i dont want audio as far as someone else being able to hear my voice. i have a phone conversation type phobia so Id rather have the voice to type the msgs even if there were typos now n then.

              There's a frontend called MediaPortal which is aimed at home setups but it has MSN integration, so it's not impossible to integrate MSN into RoadRunner.



              Until then, you're stuck with MSN Messenger and the windows OSK

                  I know in Trillian you can change the font size, etc so I'm assuming it's possible.

                    for whatever reason none of my trillians font can be adjusted. The edit menu option is there but it doesnt do anything.

                      Yehhh I'm famous.

                      Back on topic ( for a change with me lol ) - The best way forward would be to produce a 'co-pilot' copy service copy and infact this was some thing that me, Steveig, Gobby looked at a while back to be coupled with the forth coming Infomatics stuff.

                      Now I'm not sure if it will be include but certainly the comms and infrastucture would be inthere.... how ever would it connect to MSN ? Now thats another question by its self.
