About CyberBuddy Speech Recognition

With CyberBuddy Version 3 or 4
and the
Microsoft Speech Recognition Engine,
your characters can listen for your commands.

Once installed, the speech recognition engine should be "trained" to your voice in order to be most effective. Training for speech recognition consists of reading text shown on your screen into your microphone. As more text is read, the speech input engine learns more about your particular voice patterns

Some Questions on Speech Recognition can be found in the Speech Recognition FAQ.

Before a command can be understood, CyberBuddy must be "listening". The Speech Recognition Engine has a "Hot Key" to place it in Listen Mode. This is usually the "Scroll Lock" key. Press this key once and CyberBuddy will listen. Note, the first time during a program session that CyberBuddy is put in listen mode, there might be a slight delay before the first command is heard. This is due to the Microsoft Speech Recognition Engine being loaded. Speak your command clearly. CyberBuddy is listening for key words. Sometimes, your speech is more natural if you use the command in a normal phrase. For example: "What is today?" will work as well as "Today" when asking for the date.

Have some fun with him:

Tell him "Hello".
Then tell him to "move around".
Thank him.
Then tell him to go away.

Important: Remember the more training you do for the speech recognition engine and the correct adjustment of your microphone parameters will add to the accuracy of CyberBuddy in understanding your speech. These items can be adjusted on the Speech Options Window in the Speech Control Panel section.
