As far as I can remember, on some of even pretty old cellphones it was possible to say a name to be dialled. From this I conclude that it is possible and not very complex to implement. So, do such a system exist, which listens to voice commands, converts them to console commands according to a predefined map and executes?
As i know it features and language to develop own modules. You should give it a try.
Gnome Voice Control:
provides voice control for the GNOME desktop, but I have not been able to find any such system for the console.
Also, GNOME apparently did not feel the need to include any documentation on the above site, so who knows what the thing actually does. Sure dev team, I'd love to spend some hours wading through your code to figure out how to use your applet. [/rant]
Ooh, even better! I installed the applet and added it to my panel. Right-click menu has a Help option. "Great!" thinks I. "Now I can find out how it works."
Here's the text of the help page:
To add Voice Control Applet to a panel, right-click on the panel, then choose Add to Panel. Select Voice Control Applet in the Add to the panel dialog, then click OK.
The layout of the Voice Control Applet applet varies depending on the size and type of panel in which the applet resides.
1.2. Getting Help
The great thing about this is that you have to install the applet to see the help page, which tells you how to install the applet and how to get help if you can't install the applet. Very useful, indeed.
