Yung I recently came upon a project where a program can take in voice commands and perform tasks like opening a program or a file in Windows without any mouse or keyboard input. At first, I thought that was some fancy codi n stuff going on that was out of my league. Well guess what, on a closer investigation its not. In fact, programming voice recognition into a software is very simple and I am going to demonstrate how in this article. Microsoft have been developing voice recognition for a few years now and they have a website specialize in tha t http://www.microsoft.com/speech ). In order to start programming voice command recognition, you must have Microsoft Speech Recognition Engine installed. To download a copy, visit this site ( http://www.microsoft.com ) to get it. (pic. 1) In the components Dialog select Microsoft Direct Speech Recognition to have the component available to your project. This option is only available if you have the Microsoft Speech Engine installed. So let's start a project in Visual Basic. Select Standard EXE and when all the given codes and forms are loaded, g to Project \ Components. In the Components dialog, find and select the Microsoft Direct Speech Recognition (pi c 1). Remember, this option is available only if you have the Microsoft Speech Engine installed. Now, an icon button that looks like an ear, yes an ear, should appear in the Toolbox bar (pic. 2), that is the Speech Recognitio n component. Click on the button and draw it out on the form. Now your form will have the DirectSR component icon and also shown in the code window (pic. 3). DirectSR stands for "Direct Speech Recognition" and you guessed it, DirectSS stands for "Direct Speech Synthesis". your e-mail Ads by Google Voice Self Service White papers & other resources for voice portal and speech recognition www.aspect.com Free Text to Speech Latest Technology.
