    Just a thought, and then I could be a super geek and say stuff like "Computer, warp one please"

    lol
    Thats exactly what Street Atlas 2005 does. I say "Computer where am I?" and it answers me. You can also set the "pay attention" word to anything you like.

    Set it to "Hey *****" then you can say "HEY ***** WHAT IS THE NEXT TURN!" and it will tell you where to turn. The only thing, is it might get confused when I'm talking to my wife.

    Too bad routis does not have this option for saying where you are. The closest thing is to get the next direction

    You can add the pay attention word to all the values in RoutisVoice.XML and it will have the same effect.

    It would really be annyoing saying pay attention for every letter you try and enter.

    Yeah I wasnt thinking every letter, I was thinking it would be command based... I have no idea if its possible, but lets say the mic would remain active for 10 seconds after you said "Pay Attention"

    Or something similar. So I could say "Pay Attention ... Enter Navigation Favorite Home" And it would load my home to nav to. Does that make more sense?

    Instead of saying "Pay Attention" you could use "Navigator" and it would respond with "Yes or How Can I help You" Then you speak your comand: "Enter Destination Home". You don't use the word Navigator much in a regular conversation so it woun't pick up to many thinks when your talking.

    You can check in the Speech Control Panel, on the recognizer tab. SAPI 5.1 comes with the "Microsoft English Recognizer v5.1". Office 2003 comes with the "Microsoft English (US) Recognizer v6.1". If you don't see the 6.1 version, you can install it via Office Setup.

    Either one works, but without matching the case, it's technically invalid XML.

    Noise canceling mics do just that, they are designed to cancel some of the background noise that might be in your environment. They're not perfect, but they're better than non-noise canceling mics. You'll get a higher level of accuracy with a noise canceling microphone.

    Not a bad idea...sometimes it is a pain saying a bunch of commands at once. Ex: navigation zoom in, navigation zoom in, navigation 3d view off, navigation heading up.
    I tried taking out the "navigation" part but then it would accept a bunch of random commands.

    Perhaps a 'pay attention', like judoGTI said, or any other initiating voice command that will activate the mic for certain period time is just what we need..

    0l33l, you could implement the activation word using an exclusive grammar (SPGRAMMARTYPE == SPGS_EXCLUSIVE). Activate the rule at startup, then once it's recognized, deactivate the rule (that'll let the other rules all work just fine). Once the 10 seconds (or whatever the timout is) expires, re-activate the exclusive.

    Users would have to pause between saying the attention word and the phrase, though.

    Also, I was wondering if you thought of restructuring your app to move most of the configuration to the .XML file instead of the .INI file. You could use the semantic properties in a different way than you are right now. For example, the grammar (or part of it) might look like this:

    <P PROPNAME="LaunchProg">
    <O>
    <P VALSTR="c:\blah\blah\foo.exe">Start foo</P>
    <P VALSTR="c:\blah\stuff\bar.exe">Start bar</P>
    </O>
    </P>

    and

    <P PROPNAME="SendKeys">
    <O>
    <P VALSTR="{ctrl-a}{ctrl-z}">Intersection</P>
    <P VALSTR="{ctrl-a}SAN FRANCISCO">San Francisco</P>
    <P VALSTR="{ctrl-a}SAN FRANCISCO">San Francisco</P>
    </O>
    </P>

    [I've completely made up the keystrokes, because I don't know what your're actually sending to Routis].

    Would people think editing one file (something like the above) would be easier than keeping the mappings for the numbers straight?
