    Text-2-speech interaction

    Hey guys, i use Dragon naturally speaking, is there a way to make it really interactive easily. This is just me wanting to be totally geeky, For instance:

    Me: Car, we have a new passenger.
    Car: Oh, what is their name?
    Me: John Doe
    Car: Hello, John Doe, it is nice to meet you.
    OR
    Car: Welcome back John Doe, how have you been.

    and possibly keep a log of people it has met (cause i know DNS has like a macro modething), and stuff like that idk ive always wanted something human like like that. HEHE call me crazy....
    maybe if i learn the nitty gritty stuff on programming certain voice attributes (i have a few sources), ill work on a AI program...unless one exists of course

    I have seen some home automation projects that can work somewhat like you are talking. From what I have seen you still have to program in the variables , such as name and the text you want it to say. I have yet to see any intellegence with these functions though.

    for example : You know Jill will be riding in your car tommorow and you want to do something to supprise her for her b-day that is coming up.
    You would have to program in the strings of commands prior to her entering the car.

    You : Hello Computer , I have Jill with us
    < Computer already has that set to start a series of strings >
    Computer: Hello Jill
    Jill : uhh.. Hello
    Computer: I hear it is your birthday , well happy birthday <plays b-day song>

    as with the above example it is all on how you program it and there is 0% intellegence on the computers end.

    Hope that helps somewhat,
