Voice Recognition

Voice or speech recognition includes methodologies and technologies that enable the recognition and translation of spoken language into text by computers and computerized devices. It is also known as "automatic speech recognition" (ASR), "computer speech recognition", or just "speech to text" (STT). Voice recognition applications include voice user interfaces such as voice dialling (e.g. "Call home"), call routing (e.g. "I would like to make a collect call"), appliance control, search, simple data entry, preparation of structured documents, speech-to-text processing, and aircraft (usually termed Direct Voice Input).

Need a Visual Studio VB script to modify SAPI (5.4) to recognize words such as 'gimmie' in place of 'give me', or 'myname' in place of 'my name'.
I know SAPI provides for this capability; however I am a tcl\tk programmer.

Please advise.

Voice Search
Voice Search Revolution has proven itself to be much more than a fad, which means you should definitely think of putting all your eggs in one basket. Google itself showed that both teens and adults are using voice search more than once a day on their smartphones. And this was around three years back

You mean to search for voices; or speech recognition.

I'm using the Google Speech to Text API on my site where I upload audio files and the API converts it to text.

All of this piece is clear and makes sense.

What I'm wondering is if there is a way to make the text be formatted in the Chicago-Style Citation as well during the process?  Is this a function the Google Speech to Text API offers already or is there a library out there already that can do this?

Thanks!

Is there a tool/program that I can feed it an audio file and it will create an audio snippet of words mentioned by a voice with searchable metadata?
The goal is to create those types of gags where you have a collection of words mentioned by someone, and then you just create something silly with this.
What is this even called?  Sorry, I'm not an audio guy. Any tools for this? Should I attempt to make one in C#?

Looking for documents describing implementation details of Google Assistant, Siri or Alexa. Specifically, need to know whether the speech engines rely on past conversations with the user when interpreting user voice queries.

For my MS C++ application, I want to add text-to-speech, and then perhaps speech-to-text later.  Is there any reason to use something other than Microsoft Speech Platform?    Some other toolkit SDK that would somehow be more advantageous?   Thanks!

Become a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert

This course teaches how to install and configure Windows Server 2012 R2.  It is the first step on your path to becoming a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE).

I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 and I use Android Auto to connect to my car.  I recently lost the ability to use the voice command "Ok Google". I can still prompt it if I touch the mic on my car dashboard and then voice command whatever I want it to do..

Note: That this has worked before with my current set up. It may of stopped working after a recent phone update, but I can't be sure.

My settings in Android Auto are on to allow voice command. Are there any other settings that might be causing this?

What's the best way to troubleshoot?

I am running Dragon Naturally Speaking Home Version 13 on my Windows 10 computer.  I got the program so that I can take recorded lectures and convert them to text from a WAV or MP3 file.   I can't find out how to do that.  Please help.  Thanks,

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

           I currently have Microsoft Word 2013 and wish to use a voice-to-text dictation program, namely, Nuance Dragon Professional, for this application which brings me to the crux of this question.  Which version of Dragon Professional will be compatible with MS Word 2013?  My operating system is Windows 10 just in case this information is needed.  

           Thank you

           George

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

            I am interested in a headphone microphone which will work best with the Dragon voice to text dictation software.  While my laptop does have an integrated microphone, I am not sure it will be high enough quality to insure the software's accuracy of understanding my dictation of words and sentences.  With that said, any suggestions along with online purchase links for each headphone microphone will be greatly appreciated.

            Thank you

             George

I am having trouble with the Bixby voice assistant. It was working fine until a recent update. Now I cannot get it to recognize my voice and when I use the Bixby button the Listening mode is so short I can't say anything before it gives me a message saying it could not hear what I am saying.

Hi I am a physician using dragon dictation and use the citrix receiver to login to the EMR. I use the citrix receiver downloaded from the windows web store. The issue with this dictation is that some of the letters towards the end of the dictated sentence do not show up in the dictated text. for example, "25 year old male with headache' will be dictated as "25 year ol". when you check  the recognition history in the dragon dictation software the words are fully recognized but only partially entered in to a dictation. I am using windows 10 based PC. Any thoughts.

Hello everyone,
Recently I was doing a project with AA involved, The customer wanted to dial extension without having to dial # first and in the meantime they didn't want for voice recognition to be active. Is this possible to do in 2016 Exchange ?

Why hasn't voice recognition really got that much better?

It's been with us for years, still needs training. If you have thick accent you're kinda out in the cold
Remember using Dragon years ago (think it was Dragon) and still having to teach it to recognise my voice by repeating the same stuff over and over
e.g.
https://www.theverge.com/2017/6/7/15742936/apple-siri-problems-voice-recognition-wwdc-2017

Discuss, do you have a toe in this area of development?
When are we going to be a Star Trek degree of interaction

We have an MS Access 2K application.  We would like to connect a microphone to the pc and allow the user to dictate text that will be stored in a memo field.

We currently have a form called something like frmInspectionReport .
Currently the inspector opens to this form, clicks, and then types away.

We prefer to create a feature whereas he can use a microphone to dictate his report.  Ultimately, we would like to be able to listen to the dictation, and also read a transcript.

We realize part of this task would involve saving a wav or mp3 file, and keeping track of its name... but that's the easy part...  :-)

Can anyone help?

HI All,

I have a user that she had broken her left hand, and she is typing with her right hand on the keyboard. She asks me if we would have something that she should use, so she can write faster. Would you know anything to help her in this case?

Can you please advise?

Hello there!

I reecently bought Dragon premium version 13 for my new windows 10 lenovo. It won't install. When it gets to the loading screen it just sits at status 0% forever. I've been trying to download it for hours now. I've rebooted my lap top 3 times, moved the files from the CD to a USB stick and it still won't install. Any advice? Thanks!

@Brandon:
Alas I've never lived in a place large enough that a Sonos system would be a better solution than turning up the volume loud enough to be heard in the few small rooms I have.
Yeah, pretty much the same here. It would have been handy for a few parties, but at only ~1/year, it was hard to justify a Sonos vs. the "good-enough" approach of turning up the volume.
