    Skype Plugin released

    Version 1.9 released
    **********************

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    **********I have moved the down load to the Auto App Mart **********
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------


    This is a new version of RRSkype that has speech recognition, speech to text and automatic translation.

    To use it you must install and train microsofts speech software. I can't say it enough....train...train....train....Get it here

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

    How it works.
    If you receive a chat and speech is enabled it will say the person who sent the message then say the chat itself.
    If translate is enabled the the recieved messge will be checked against the skype users language and translated into your skype user language. So say you get a message in french from a french language skype user and you have english set as your skype user then it will translate the message to english and say it. It will also set you current freind to the message sender so you can reply immediately.

    For speech there are two new button commands. RRSKYPE_SPEECHON and RRSKYPE_SPEECHOFF. To use press RRSKYPE_SPEECHON. Say a chat (dont make it more than a sentance then press RRSKYPE_SPEECHOFF immediately. Dont wait for the speech to be recognised, it will be processed in the background and displayed in RRSKYPE_MSGTEXT when complete. If you dont switch it off it will continue to listen for speech and get confused If the text is ok use RRSKYPE_SENDCHAT to send it to the currently selected user.

    Now the translation is only as good as google can make it and the speech recognition is up to microsoft so if it doesn't do well in those departments for you then its not my problem otherwise I'm happy to help.

    Version 1.7 released
    **********************
    Added mute/unmute of radio when an incomming call starts ringing.

    Version 1.6 released
    **********************
    Added link to GPSLOCKOUT so that auto responses occur only when lockout is enabled. You do not need GPSLockout for the plugin to work though.
    Also added ability to switch off auto response totally.

    Changed the friends list so that its sorted.
    NOTE You cannot have the same skype name for more than one record.
    This is a plugin limitation rather than a skype issue.

    Version 1.5 released
    **********************
    New call duration label called RRSKYPE_DURATION shows the current or last calls duration.
    Able to set whether you can send and receive video calls.You can now send and receive video. When receivevideo set , and a call is made or recieved then RRSkype_video.skin is opened and video displayed. DO NOT set auto full screen for video in skype as it stops the window capture for embedding.
    Made most of the user details relate to the selected user rather than your user.
    new command to send incomming call to voice mail RRSKYPE_TOVOICEMAIL


    Version 1.4 released
    **********************
    Incomming calls will now start a SKYPECALL.SKIN
    Pausing winamp or video. When the phone is ringing or you make a call the PAUSE command is sent if STATUS=PLAY.
    Then when hangup is pressed the PLAY command is sent.

    Version 1.3 released
    **********************
    Improved start up time and minimisation.
    new skin for BMW E36

    Version 1.2 released
    **********************
    Changed plugin so the onclselclick and onclclick and custom list commands only work if the skin file
    starts with rrskype. This is to stop interaction problems with other plugins.

    Version 1.1 released
    **********************
    Fixed problem with user status pictures when Skype installed in language other than english.
    Added new command RRSKYPE_CLEAR that clears the current dialbox. Different from RRSKYPE_DEL which just deletes one char at a time.


    Well after lots of help from Dartman_71 I have a version of my Skype plugin that I think can be released.

    Check out the readme for the functions available.

    Briefly you can call, answer and hangup to either a skype user or phone number (NOTE skype requires a + sign before any phone number)

    There are custom lists for contacts, calls and smsmessages. The smsmessages allows you to see the text.

    At the moment I haven't implemented chat because I dont think its a good idea in the car. Because of this the plugin will send an automessage to anyone who tries to chat with you when this plugin is running.

    It is also my first installer so any comments would be apprieciated. You can install any of the three skins I've added. Two are rubbish but show the functionality. I like the freedom ultimate one.

    If anybody makes a skin and would like it added to the installer then just PM me.

    Very Nice! this is a nice addition to RR for sure!

    Could there be an option for chat? (Maybe with a warning not to use while driving ect). This would be for passengers in the car and NOT the driver, as well as when you are pulled over or parked.

    I can add chat but was waiting to guage the interest of people before spending time on it. At the moment the plugin will send an automated message to anybody sending a chat that you are in the car and cannot reply.

    Dartman has found an issue with non English installs of Skype that the status of users fails. I think I know why and am working on it now. It probably affects the ringing indicator too.

    new version released.
    Again thanks to dartman_71 for pointing out all the bugs and pestering me to fix them
    New skin as well thanks to dartman for Robby's BMW E36 skin.
    This release starts up alot quicker and should be more robust for loss of internet connections etc.

    Get it in the first post.
