Hi first of all, congrats for your work.

Do you think you can port it into Spanish?

I depend on the Microsoft speech engine ... They currently only support three languages:  English, Japanese, and some simplified Chinese.

The speech engine comes with the Windows OS ... I need 5.3 or better ... i.e. Windows Vista has version 5.3  and Windows Seven has 5.4 ... If I move away from the XML syntax definition I can go back to 5.1  which would allow me to go back to Windows XP ... at this time I do not see a motivation to do this.

If you have links to 3rd party language extensions I would like to review them.
To actually make the port I would need some help with the grammar rules for a particular target language.

I stand corrected:  Windows supports the following:
  • en-GB. English (United Kingdom)
  • en-US. English (United States)
  • de-DE. German (Germany)
  • es-ES. Spanish (Spain)
  • fr-FR. French (France)
  • ja-JP. Japanese (Japan)
  • zh-CN. Chinese (China)
  • zh-TW. Chinese (Taiwan)
I have only implemented the US English.
It's only a matter of editing an XML file in the installation area to try one of the others. If some one is interested ... and knows what BNF stands for in a computing language ... I can talk then through how to edit and test this in another language ... but sad to say ... after studing french and spanish ... I am not very good at speaking or knowing the grammatical structure of these languages.

I could do the editing if someone would provide me the information in the format I use in the help file.

I use VERA Lite and Just installed on widows 7 and get the following errors.

1.) During Install the installer stays active until you close HAL Client which automatically opens while Installing HAL
2.) I am able to start HAL server
3.) I am able to finds both VERA Lite and Itself HAl server IP Address
3.) As soon as I click on the eye on the application it crashes.

If you can send me the following files to my email (see website) I can figure this out:

Code: [Select]
c:/Program Files/RTS Services Inc/HalServer/VeraLogFile.txt Program Files x86 for 64 bit OS.

Would you like a sub-board for your [speech-based] HAL Remote?

Done.  I shortened the name a little, and put the rest into the body/description.

This is absolutely incredible. It's obviously going to take a lot of work to get it to where we all want it to be but as it is I'm astounded. I'm also not sure how I've missed it until today when it got it's own forum. I've been using dictation software for years now so I'm pretty comfortable using this. I'll report back with my thoughts once I've had enough time to get to know HAL.
One thing I can suggest right now though is the ability to toggle the sleeping/running status of the client via voice. I want to put microphones in every room. Remember that video of the guy talking to his ceiling and the house told him where the cars were and playing "who let the dogs out"? Oh and also, the ability to make custom responses to events. Like HAL welcomes me when I enter my PIN. Oh and one more thing. Where does the voice come from? Can one choose a third party voice and control things like the speed of the voice? I'm used to TextAloud with Cepstral voices and it would make it much easier to understand if the voice was a little more sophisticated and spoke slower with longer breaks between words.


@ RichardTSchaefer

This is huge. Thank you for all your hard work on making this astounding product. I will happily buy this product if and when it comes with a price tag.

EDIT:

OK, I'm having a really difficult time making this do anything. Occasionally I can get it to turn lights on and off but I can't get it to do things like lock the door or report on the thermostat. I keep getting the Unknown error.

My forum account was apparently hacked by a leprechaun. And he's drunk all of the time. If a post of mine seems a little off kilter, it's probably because he made it.
