Controlling Other apps???
I have posted a thread in the Media Engine section (http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/media-engine/55691-voice-control-for-media-engine.html) asking if I can control ME by voice command and was pointed to NaviVoice which I have now downloaded and am looking at.
I'm looking at the xml file and the ini file to see what i'd have to add/change to get NaviVoice to replicate keypress commands to control ME but I'm not sure I understand what I need to write and where I need to put it.
For example if I want NV to open ME I would add a value for “open media engine” I would add something like the following to the xml file:
<p val="454">open media engine</p>
<p val="455">close media engine</p>
<p val="456">minimize media engine</p>
<p val="457">restore media engine</p>
<p val="458">maximize media engine</p>
<p val="459">focus media engine</p>
and in the ini file I’d add in the [programs] section
That makes sense to me but I’m confused about how I would make NaviVoice replicate a keypress to work the functions of ME. If someone could show me using an example like for instance in ME there is a quit button which takes you to the main menu for which I would configure a keypress on the ‘Home’ key. How would I make NaviVoice replicate pressing this key if I wanted it activated by saying “menu”???
Any help anyone can give me would very very much appreciated!!!
Macro query & Programm open oddity....
I have been playing around this evening trying to do a few macros to improve the usability of ME with NV but have had a few problems.
I managed to solve a couple of them and now have a useful set of commands for "down two" "down five" "up five" and "up two" which makes scrolling up and down lists nice and quick without having to scroll a page at a time.
The next macro I wanted was to move the cursor to the ok button on the onscreen keyboard within ME and select it to confirm my search. I used a combo of down, up and right commands which worked fine to move the cursor but I can't get any 'enter' command to work. It either does nothing or just types enter in the search field.
How can I go about adding a press of enter into a macro? BTW the command 'enter' works fine by itself.
I know I could use the set mouse position command, and infact have added it to the end of my macro as a temporary fix, but would like to be able to do it with keypresses if possible.
Another macro related question, is there anyway I could make NV repeat a comand until I tell it to stop? This owuld be useful for turning the volume up or down. If not I'll make a few macros for the task, eg volume up/down 10% or 50%, but just thought I'd ask.
The other somewhat odd thing is the fact that Boris will no longer open Media Engine, despite it having worked perfectly before. I removed one or bits from the programs section but none that were relted to Media Engine (or at least I thought not) and now it won't open ME. The command is recognised and the confirmation is spoken but it doesn't open. I've attached my xml and ini files in case that is helpful.
Many thanks for any help you can give me.
