VoxCommando - Speech recognition and command utility (control XBMC by voice commands) - marv_el - 2010-04-30 09:09
i found a video on youtube, which looks rather promising - it's from a german guy. he is using an eventghost plug-in called "vox commando", which can control your pc by voice recognition.
the programmer of this plug-in now plays around to control xbmc with it:
i haven't tried it by myself, but i maybe will soon.

Thanks for your interest in vox commando. There have been a bunch of updates recently that you might be interested in. The eventghost thread you linked to above is pretty active and a good way to keep track of my progress: http://www.eventghost.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2063.
I have some youtube demo videos up as well, including:
the latest video using VoxCommando to control XBMC: http://youtu.be/0gYDcandlZ8
Voice commands using ipod as a microphone: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTkO3AzYJKs
This video basically shows most of vox's features: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gaI3yT8vPJs
VoxCommando Website - jitterjames - 2010-06-27 15:08
I have started a website for VoxCommando. I just put it up yesterday so it still needs a lot of work. You can download the latest version from there.
There will be a forum for support and feature requests and tutorials on installation and customization etc. eventually
I would like to make it possible to talk directly to XBMC from VoxCommando, possibly via http requests. If there is anyone with experience controlling XBMC via http that is willing to help it would be great.

Looks cool. One thing I'd suggest that I'd need if I were going to use such a thing:
Some kind of automated scroll for when you just want to browse and don't know what you're looking for. So rather than like in your video where you say "Scroll right 4", you could say "start scrolling right" and it would scroll through all your movies, taking maybe 3 seconds or so on each before scrolling to the next. It would suck to keep saying scroll right. Then when you see a movie you're interested in you just tell it to stop (or go to that movie). Just an idea; it may already be possible to have something like that.

Demo is simply amazing ! Congratulations jitterjames !
What about support for languages like French, for example? Is it supported?

Yes. I just developed a working test of this for a WinMedCntr user. Today I am planning on developing it further to allow use with any command and to allow custom repeat rates, so that you can create your own "slow scroll right" "fast scroll right" etc.
I am hoping to get this working today or tomorrow and putting it in the downloads section of the site.
If you want to keep an eye on the progress come over to the forum. http://voxcommando.com/forum

Yes, VoxCommando uses the Windows SAPI engine, so you can use any language that is supported by Windows Speech.
Quote:Speech Recognition is available in English (U.S.), English (U.K.), German (Germany), French (France), Spanish (Spain), Japanese, Chinese (Traditional), and Chinese (Simplified). (source)
you can customize ALL of your VoxCommando command phrases too, so if you want you can create a command that opens wordpad by saying "ick ick flack soup". It's up to you. I am able to issue german commands on my system even though I only have english installed, because it makes a best guess by figuring it out phonetically.
Some commands can use "open" dictation (where you can say anything in a given language). You would use this for example for a web search so that you could say "search google for:" and then be able to say anything. For these types of commands you would need to have the correct language installed, and a good clean microphone, or ideally a noise cancelling headset.
I don't think I have any French users yet so you'd be very welcome to join the VC community.

there is a new version, and now a payload editor at VoxCommando

I would like to add the ability to add movie and tvshow selection to VoxCommando but the xbmc http interface is not working as it should.
these two commands:
- addtoplaylistfromdb(episodes; idEpisode=3)
- addtoplaylistfromdb(movies; idMovie=3)
should allow me to add tvshows and movies to the playlist the same way that I do it with music. When I issue these commands, they do get added to the playlist, but then they won't play.
Does anyone know anything about this? the http api has been depricated, which means I guess that this will never get fixed, but as far as I know the json interface is still incomplete and would not offer a solution.

here's a demo of the lastest version of VoxCommando with XBMC.
the functionality is quite extensive now:
