Do you think its possible to use "start listening" feature in SD instead of having to do gesture an "A" or something....
The StreetDeck 126.96.36.199 BETA release makes it possible to run StreetDeck under windows Vista RC2. After installing StreetDeck I realized that Yahoo! Music Jukebox checked the operating system version and refused to install under Vista. There's an easy way to get it to install.
Save the Jukebox install executable on your computer. I just did it and the name for the executable was ymjsetup. Right click the application and select Properties. Under Compatibility Mode, select "Run this program in compatibility mode." Use the default of Windows XP (Service Pack 2)
Double click ymjsetup and the application should go through the normal installation process.
Before starting StreetDeck, you'll need to restart your computer and start Yahoo! Jukebox and login for the first time. That should get you going.
The biggest problem is the processing power and the use of multiple microphones.
I think the best option is an external button on the steering wheel using Grinder pl.
On my pioneer AVIC-Z1, I had a button on my steering wheel that would trigger the "start listening" of the unit. Not as nice as just saying the "start listening" phrase but it worked OK. (Which was about all that did with the Pioneer speech recognition.)
http://store.mp3car.com/ProductDetai...Code=COM%2D017 Its not perfect, nothing is, if your music is loud enough its going to pick it up too, but it's still by far the best microphone I've ever used (and damn well better be for $300) it works about 10x better then any other microphone I've used in the car and if your going to do voice recognition is the only thing I'd bother recommending and the only thing that is reasonably usable with the windows down or even up for that matter.
I don't think you can do noise cancellation any better then the andrea mic without tuning it specifically to only one car and one audio system.
You can already start voice reconition by a button. Just bind an event from your girder plugin to eFunctionToggleVoiceMode.
One other solution I was thinking of is to simply replace "start listening" to a human whistle. It would be less stress on the cpu and the mic will only listen for a certain frequency and amplitude.
