    VoiceAttack Software

    I've mentioned to a few people on TS that I use some software called VoiceAttack and thought I would throw this post up in case anyone was interested in trying it.

    I'm not connected to the software in any way just in case people were wondering but I can offer any help or assistance as I've been using it since it was released.

    What it basically does is creates a macro or key press that is activated by your voice instead of you pressing a key.

    So for example if you wanted the Tab-7-1 command in game you would have to obviously press Tab-7-1. You could create a macro that activates this upon a key press such as the one in Lewis's Thread and that works great, but I tend to move my keyboard aside to place my X52 in front of me so I would then have to lean around to press the Macro key.

    Instead I just say "Enemy Contacts" and VoiceAttack does it for me. The great thing is you can also have TTS voice confirmation on things so for example I say "Undercarriage" and the TTS Voice says "Undercarriage" back to me so I know it has actioned the command. There is no limit to the keyboard commands you can use, any combination of Shift-Alt-Ctrl, Numpad, F keys etc can be used and in case you were wondering you assign the key press you use for TS PTT and it ignores anything it hears while that is active so if your chatting to a team mate and say something like "My damned engine switched off last time" it ain't gonna switch your engine off.

    I will provide my Cliffs profile for anyone to download so you can open it and get an idea of how it works and obviously the commands may need to be changed to YOUR in game settings.

    Enjoy.

    Voice Attack is Shareware w/ $10 Registration fee if you like it.

    http://voiceattack.com/purchase.aspx

    I personally recommend "Voice Activated Commands", a very sophisticated program (Shareware w/ $18 Registration fee if you like it.)

    Re: VoiceAttack Software

    Rimmer, just loaded and tried out VoiceAttack, ans it's great.
    Set it up for finding enemy contacts (tab 7-1 and tab 4-1), to find "homeplate" , and for airstrip conditions so far, mostly just to see how they work.
    Have downloaded your profile for it, although not added it yet.
    But thanks very much for sharing this, it's going to be both fun to use, and useful.

    Re: VoiceAttack Software

    Just bumping this thread to remind/inform you that Voice attack is certainly a useful tool to have when flying sims.

    It certainly can take the place of the keyboard for many things when flying.

    I have used it to rearm/refuel, request the direction home, and have it set up for some other comms functions.

    It comes in very handy after I have been mauled because I yell "JUMP" and that opens the canopy and tosses me out of the plane.

    (I might possibly be the highest repeat member of the caterpillar club on the planet! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caterpillar_Club As an aside, if you can get your hands on a copy of "Into The Silk: True Stories of the Caterpillar Club" I strongly recommend it - it is mostly about those who had to jump during the war; I had my copy handed down to me from my dad, and have read it several times. Think it is hard to get hold of these days though.)

    I believe that you are allowed a maximum of 20 commands at a time for no cost, but if you want to go above that then you pay $10 US.

    Can also be used when video editing and many other things (none of which I have explored).

    Nothing to lose by giving it a try.

    I have not had any problems with it except that i think I now load my headtracking prior to VoiceAttack because it otherwise doesn't load properly (can't remember as it's been a while since I've had any conflicts).

    I think that VA is very useful especally for VR. For flat screen games its great for giving orders to wingmen etc.

    Hadn't thought that far ahead Crash, but absolutely would be.

    You can program Voiceattack to generate and playback voice messages, using the MS Windows technology that converts Text To Speech.

    You add the desired messages in text into the voice command actions you have created, then when you call that command VA will 'read' the message to you via the MS in-built voice.
