GBM InkShow: Intro to Speech Recognition and Navigation

audio400dsp[1] How many times have you told your computer to do something and you really wish it would do it?  I know I have a few times… :)  Well, In Windows Vista you can use voice commands to make your computer do all kinds of things.  Navigation of the Start menu, opening and closing programs and general navigation though out the OS.

In this InkShow I give a quick overview of Voice Command and speech recognition.  I cover the basics and don’t get into some of the more advanced features (that’s another InkShow), but if you have never seen it in action, this video will show you what it can accomplish.  I take a look at opening and closing program, menu navigation, starting up OneNote and dictating a couple of lines and then also take a look at how you can navigate thru multiple windows that are running on your computer.

Speech Recognition Key Features in Vista:

Commanding
“Say what you see” commands allow you to naturally control applications and complete tasks, such as formatting and saving documents; opening and switching between applications; and opening, copying, and deleting files. You can even browse the Internet by saying the names of links.>” src=”http://www.microsoft.com/enable/images/nav/arrow_BlueRight.gif” width=11 border=0>Featured in demo</a></p><p> <strong>Correction</strong> <br /> Efficiently fix incorrectly recognized words by selecting form alternatives for the dictated phrase or word or by spelling the word. <a href=>” src=”http://www.microsoft.com/enable/images/nav/arrow_BlueRight.gif” width=11 border=0>Featured in demo</a></p><div class='code-block code-block-5' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; clear: both;'> <!-- 300x250 --><div data-ns=
