    Just an update....

    Ok, I have been working extensively with the new plugin by Jebus for voice recognition (Currently in Beta). An AMAZING plugin I might add! I am incorporating it into the skin, and it will be an option to use voice to control the skin.

    All off the commands for the skin will be set up and ready to use "Right out of the box".

    You will be able to say things like:

    "Main Menu"
    "[Day / Night] Mode"
    "Five Day Forecast"
    "Weather Radar"
    "Chicago Weather"
    "Gas Prices"
    "Play Artist Journey"
    "Play Song Separate Ways"
    "Next/Previous Song"
    "Pause Playback"
    "Mute Audio"
    "Audio [Browser / Player / Playlist]"
    "Set volume to 70%"
    "Navigation"
    "Gauges"
    "Calendar"
    "Answer the phone"
    "Turn on visual"
    "Play Disk 4"


    This is just a very short list of all of some of the commands to show what can be done. Just about everything in the skin will be able to be controlled by voice. I will make a nicely formatted list of all of the commands that can be printed out for reference.

    The only thing that will need to be done, by the user, is to set up voice recognition on their system, and train it. the SAPI 5 voice recognition, if not installed already, can be downloaded from Microsoft's site.

    ...
    So this begs the question, how do you connect 3 audio sources (XM, HD Radio, Microphone) to a computer setup for 2 (like most computers). Right now I am using my Mic input for my HD Radio.

    Also, are there any well known microphones out there that can be mounted (like in the A-pillar trim) that work well with a computer?

    As always...great improvements John!

    You need one of Mitch's uas devices. It's a usb controlled device that can swich 4 inputs to one output. It works flawlessly with RR

    I HIGHLY recommend THIS MICROPHONE. It has absolutely rave reviews from MP3Car members, as well as all over the internet. Sonic has this mic, and cant seem to say enough good about it.

    It is a directional stereo microphone. This means that it will listen in front of it, and filter out say a talkative passenger in the car, the stereo playing and road noise.

    I second that mic, I have it and it works really well even with highway noise.

    I am speechless (ha) that this will be "out of the box". I have been following the thread for RRvoice and even fidling with it (not totally setup yet) has shown amazing capabilities. To me this will change everything in a positive way! Jebus did a phenomenal job on this, and thanks to you and blue for jumping and giving him a hand!

    This may be just what I was looking for -- my PC (and corresponding audio jacks) are in the trunk, and I don't want to run another audio cable for the microphone back there. This would just let me plug into one of the USB ports up front. Nice!

    EDIT: This is probably answered in the RRVoice thread, but do you need a physical toggle to tell the plug-in "hey, here comes a command" or is it always listening and reacting to stuff?

    You will need a button to press to let the system know you are about to speak. This does a couple of things, it mute's the audio so if you are jamming out, press the button, audio is muted, so you the system can clearly hear what you are saying. When the command is recognized, the audio will resume.

    Hooking up a button can be done in many different ways.

    - Jebus designed a Serial Port Plugin so you can hook a button to 2 wires on the serial port.
    - Use an available input on the Fusion Brain.
    - Use CDRSkull's JoyPad plugin to take any old USB game pad to add a button
    - Using RR's keytbl.ini, you can set a key on a keyboard, that when pushed will trigger it to listen.
    - Use a mouse/trackball and assign a button.
    - iBus
    - Girder

    So if using girder with steering wheel controls I need to have girder mimic a keyboard press and use RR Keytbl.ini?
