    SpeakEasy Voice Recognition - Beta 1

    I've created a Voice Recognition app, my aim is to create a simple Voice Recognition Interface that is easy change and reduces false recognised commands. And to allow you to configure the setup the way you want it.

    So I've taken the features I like from NaviVoice & Bruno and built my own Voice recognition app: SpeakEasy VR.

    SpeakEasy VR unique features:
    1. Highly customisable configuration
    2. Predictive help to complete command
    3. Interactively set a acceptance threshold for valid recognised commands
    4. Simple interface to change voice commands (car friendly resolution)
    5. Locking of command groups also enable/disable comand groups by voice
    6. Can control and application that has a SendMessage, HotKey or TCPIP interface. I'll make a Girder importer eventually if it is popular.
    7. Logging of voice commands to figure out which commands work well or badly in you car (with a noisey car engine a Voice Recogniser can pick up false commands). So this is a good way to figure out if you need to alter some voice phrases.



    Ignore my orange/black RR skin that's my own funky colored RR skin. The window to look at is the slightly transparent white bix on the top left and in the center. The top left box is clickable to start the engine. The center box displays while you are talking. You can voice activate the center box as well and set the transparency levels to your liking.

    I have a worked Beta if anyone is brave enough to try it!
    ----------------------------------

    BTW, Interpreted text in GREEN means that it was recognised the accuracy was ABOVE the threshold which you set in the slider. If the text is RED the it was recognised but BELOW the threshold.

    The Threshold is between 0% and 50%. Setting it to 0% means that anything that is recognised is executed. Set the value higher mean that you have to speak more clearly and precisely. I have a Irish accent and it seems to not work so well with it so I set the threshold high to about 25%, it also reduces false recognised phrases produced by car noise and MP3 playback. As you speak you'll see the accuracy of each phrase that is recognised, try to figure out what accuracy works best for you and set the slider threshold level to just below what you normally get for the accuracy. I find that for some phrases I need to turn it way down so that it is recognised, while other phrases get close to 100% no problem.

    I'll write up some documentation in the next release if there aren't too many bugs/crashes

    Here's a screenshot of the vocabulary editor. Not as pretty because of the screen size on Lillput but it's functional and easy to use.



    Left box contains all the voice commands center panels allow you to edit the selected command. Right panel allows you to choose which commands you want from all the available commands from that app.

    The green text list in the center with RR:: blablabla shows the commands that would be triggered if you say the voice phrase. It's close to what NaviVoice does with Macros but I have yet to do mouse clicks. I know NaviVoice has macros but I'm not sure of it's functionality.

    I am working my way through the Frodo Girder file to figure out all the sendMessage/COM commands, once I've got all the commands I'll add them to the XML settings file and it's just a matter of editing the vocab to your needs.

    @Laidback Cheers, I have a absoluted directory address in the settings file for the Vocabulary folder, So it would only work on my Dev machine. I've fixed this now, i hope! Please re-download and try again.

    Also I've added complete FreeDrive command support, click on setup... to add in new commands.

    A bit of help if you say "Show help" it will list all vocabulary commands that you can say. It is a little transparent, but the \Vocab\ folder can have as many ini files as you want and they will all be loaded when yuou start the app or press "Reset" button.
