    A plugin would have to be made unless the one voice application can launch commands/applications based on the voice commands.

    Has anyone made a video with voice control on Road Runner? Street Deck with one voice plug-in software has utterly blown me away. I'm gonna research voice control on Road Runner in the mean time.

    With regard to one voice, keep in mind that they took my video and put up my statements completely out of context (they're salesmen so you have to expect that).

    http://blog.onev.com/blogsite/2008/0...tion.html#more

    I can get one voice to be 100% accurate on controls (as their blog states), but the next time it starts up in the same conditions, it may be 40%. And when moving, I speed up, 20%, slow down, 80%. They are not ready for retail yet. I also haven't heard anything from them in several months.

    The built in voice control for StreetDeck is much more stable as it uses microsoft teaching for capture. One Voice doesn't. I showed it off at a meet in Dallas (one voice) and on my voice it was ok, but the other person, it wasn't nearly as accurate. Don't get me wrong, it's a really nice toy and shows great promise, but not really 100% functional. It needs the teaching even if One Voice doesn't want to do it.
    My opinion is my own.

    Hey thanks for creating that video. It motivated me to get voice control for my carpc in a hurry. I always thought it would burden my CPU if running constantly, but seeing the "Speak prompt" I realized this isn't the case. This is excellent because I can use a steering wheel button to trigger voice activation and minimize any potential CPU burdens.

    I looked into the Andrea MICs and the automotive version looks really nice but the price is too high ($320!), so I settled for and ordered the "
    USB-SA Andrea External USB Soundcard / SuperBeam Microphone Bundle " which can be found here: http://store.mp3car.com/External_USB..._p/aud-004.htm

    To get myself familiarized I grabbed an old microphone, installed Road Runner on a test computer, downloaded SAPI 5.1 and got it working on my first try. The Road Runner version works but is not as fancy as the Street Deck version. I was almost ready to switch over to Street Deck after seeing your presentation. LOL.

    Which text to speech voice were you using in that video?

    That would be Heather. One of the acapela voices bundled with StreetDeck. She works really well on the weather mod for SD.

    Voice recognition in Road Runner

    Here is "What my Road Runner Mod can do"

    [MEDIA]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D34S97ub54c[/MEDIA]


    I have voice working quite well with Road Runner. What I can NOT get it to do is manage my music. EA: "Play Artist The Doors" ect

    I just do not know how to create the grammer file for something like this. Anyone know how to do this? With thr RRMedia database, it is capable of exporting a text file with every song, and the path to it. If I know how to create the grammer file, I could easily write a small app to create the grammer file in the correct syntax from that text file.

    The key is to have some sort of keys in the grammer file for:

    [Play artist xxxx]
    [Play Song xxxx]

    The problem I am having is to get MS Voice recognition to use just the phrases that are defined in the grammer file, and not every word from every song ect.

    For instance, if you have a song songs like:

    Tomorrow today and yesterday
    tommorrow is the day
    yesterday is so far away

    you could speak "tomorrow is far away" and it would recognise it as a phrase, but not play anything, as the words are all in different titles.

    If anyone out there is familiar with creating a grammer file, I would love to hear back, and see if we can come up with something!!!!!

    This looks like a stand alone program that does what you are looking for. I wonder if it could be embedded? The price is right.

    You have me so confused now! LOL! You mention above that One Voice does not work that great. I PM'd you about it, and you basically said the same thing, that it does not work that great. The program you link to above is also from One Voice, and I would imagine uses the same VR engine / coding.

    That prog also is made for itunes and WMP. That would prevent any interaction with Road Runner and Winamp.
