Language dilemma on non english windows and problems with voice attack
Voice attack has gotten raving reviews and along with VAC it seems to be the software everyone uses.
Only that I’m german and english commands are interpreted into german words, rendering everything useless.
Adding to the library a host of possible english combinations doesn’t help much when proper brevity requires the use of callsigns, which change. Saying ‘Chalice 1 Viper 4 1 request picture’, he will have recognized a sentence like ‘chalice 1 wir für fahren ohne request picture’. I am not going to implement every possible callsign combination into the speech library.
Adding to that, it is extremely cumbersome to add single words and hope for voice attack to recognize a sentence. It most likely doesn’t.
In order to get safe results I need to add the entire commands and their variations to the speech library. Extremely time consuming. and still not a 100% safe he recognizes.
And because if I say an entire sentence with callsigns, even though I implemented a command like ‘request picture’ and added that to the voice library, he won’t recognize it as a command, because he listens to the entire sentence.
Is there a way to tell voice attack to ignore a stuff within a sentence that doesn’t fit to a command line?
Hi, install english language pack and switch desktop language between german and english, when you want to use VAC. It works very well and not use german speech recognition…
Possible if you don’t have a ‘home’ version of windows…
I think the only version that allows language switching is win7 ultimate and beyond. I have win7 professional and I’m not using callsigns in my VAC commands so most of the stuff works after a bit of training and adding certain words (and removing some German ones) from the speech library. I agree though that adding all callsigns would mean a mountain of work.
All the best, Uwe
Does anyone know if keyspeech would have the same problem? I’m also from Germany and thinking about getting it.
I got it already working in my actual version, but not yet released. Hang in for three weeks and you can try it - together with the german manual that is being worked on ATM.
To use this you do not need to have Win 7 Ultimate.
Just install the Microsoft SDK 11.
Awesome! Thanks in advance, really looking forward to this
