How does using the following seem?

Is that a historical reference?  Perhaps it's actually doable as may be it's doubtful humans can produce the necessary sounds with their in-born equipment smiley

For those who use such things...

Mycroft has a search engine plugin / provider for it.

Looks neat!  Thanks for sharing smiley

Could we practice injecting into the network by voicce? Wink

Nice find.

With a higher bandwidth, it might be interesting to use as an alternative network smiley

Thanks for the change!

If that's the only difference, would you still like testing?
108  DonationCoder.com Software / PopUp Wisdom / Re: PopUp Wisdom Love on: December 02, 2013, 10:45:57 PM
Ah I think I see what's going on -- somehow I was expecting the portable version to be configured to look for settings and friends in the directory containing the exe.  It doesn't by default I guess.

I guess I misunderstood.  Sorry about that.
109  DonationCoder.com Software / PopUp Wisdom / Re: PopUp Wisdom Love on: December 02, 2013, 10:43:13 PM
I tried again (Windows 7 Pro), i.e. non-overwriting installation of portable version -- when I look at the options dialog I see that my custom hotkeys are already set.  I didn't expect this for a portable set up.  Is that the intended behavior?
110  DonationCoder.com Software / PopUp Wisdom / Re: PopUp Wisdom Love on: December 02, 2013, 10:40:53 PM
To clarify, I've only tested portable versions.

What I thought I saw was (under Windows 7 Pro), a new installation of PopUp Wisdom (non-overwriting) already being configured with custom hotkeys.

I'll test again.
111  DonationCoder.com Software / PopUp Wisdom / Re: PopUp Wisdom Love on: December 02, 2013, 05:37:23 PM
[Feature] PopUp Wisdom will now create the default UserQuotes.txt file in the proper user configuration directory (instead of installation directory) on WinVista/7/8.

Does this happen for the portable version too?  I failed to determine whether it does or not (my preference being that it doesn't happen.)

The newest version seemed to read my old settings (at least the hotkey settings) even though I thought I didn't do an overwriting installation.  May be I messed up?

As far as focus-stealing is concerned, haven't seen it happen for both VirtualBox guest OS installations of XP Pro and 7 Pro.

When the machine in question is broken or I don't trust its content, booting from ISO seems like a better option -- also when it's someone else's PC...
113  DonationCoder.com Software / PopUp Wisdom / Re: PopUp Wisdom Love on: December 02, 2013, 05:03:12 AM
Let me know if it works.

Both VirtualBox guest OS tests, but working better (no stolen focus detected so far) for both Windows XP Pro and Windows 7 Pro thumbs up

If I were running a server I'd be using Debian as well -- for non-server-related development, I've been finding Arch to be easier from the perspective of creating, installing, and uninstalling software cleanly.

I tend to use Mint via booting one of its isos, so it'd have been nicer not to have to apply an update after booting from the LMDE iso.
115  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / *NIX; tesseract OCR experiences on: December 01, 2013, 10:07:56 PM
Recently I've been trying out the tesseract OCR option (both via gimagereader and via the command line) with mixed (but tolerably good IMHO) results at least for English text.

In my usage, I notice occasional recognition results such as:


It seems to me that for some of these cases, there is little point in accepting the results as-is (e.g. "vv" seems like it's seldom used).  I'm about to go through a page with a description of tesseract configuration parameters in hope of turning up something applicable -- but anyone have any relevant tesseract experience to share?



I'm using tesseract 3.02.02.
116  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 01, 2013, 09:07:04 PM
The "update" I was referring to was the LMDE update pack -- do you do additional "from-Debian" updates as well?



Sorry I wasn't clear in my original post -- I was referring to the process of installing from scratch.
117  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 01, 2013, 08:46:59 PM
Ah, thanks for the explanation -- I guess that means one starts off with an ISO and then performs at least one update.
118  DonationCoder.com Software / PopUp Wisdom / Re: PopUp Wisdom Love on: December 01, 2013, 08:37:48 PM
If we uncheck that option to set focus, then exit program.
Then restart program, with it appearing in tray.

Then open up notepad, and give it focus.

Now show a popup quote.  Does popup wisdom steal focus?

No (IMHO this is similar to what I described before), and then if I click the OK button to dismiss the quote, Notepad ends up with focus (I see a flickering of it).  Now if I invoke the hotkey to show a quote, focus is stolen by the quote dialog.

FWIW, I did follow your steps smiley



Reproduced similar results using Windows 7 Pro (as guest OS of VirtualBox).

However, a subsequent hotkey invocation leads to focus being stolen here.

does this problem only occur when triggering via hotkey (as opposed to timer?)

It happens with both (I added a comment to the post above too).

The key here to observing focus not being stolen seems to be to get the Options dialog up first (without any quote showing), clicking on the "OK" button and then either waiting for a quote to appear or using the hotkey.  After one quote dialog appears, subsequent appearances of quote dialogs appear to steal focus consistently (until the options dialog box is brought up with a quote dialog showing and then the "OK" button being clicked.)



FWIW, the testing is being done on a system where PopupWisdom had never been installed before.
120  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 01, 2013, 07:38:02 PM
Nice!



Anyone know if there will be any more work on the Debian-based flavor?
121  DonationCoder.com Software / PopUp Wisdom / Re: PopUp Wisdom Love on: December 01, 2013, 07:30:18 PM
Testing whether focus gets stolen seems to yield different results.

Right after clicking the "OK" button of the Options dialog (with no quote dialog showing), using the hotkey to bring up a new quote does not lead to focus being stolen.  However, a subsequent hotkey invocation leads to focus being stolen here.

Similar behavior was observed for the case of waiting for quotes to appear -- in contrast to summoning one by hotkey.
122  DonationCoder.com Software / PopUp Wisdom / Re: PopUp Wisdom Love on: December 01, 2013, 07:21:56 PM
Tried under Windows XP Pro (as guest OS of Virtualbox).

Focus seemed to still be stolen even with unchecking "Popup gets Active Focus":

From 09:25 of Guerilla Scala Programming at eBay until 09:50 (25 seconds).
124  DonationCoder.com Software / PopUp Wisdom / Re: PopUp Wisdom Love on: November 30, 2013, 08:17:30 PM
Not steal focus -- makes sense to me -- i will try to make it so.

Hurray smiley

v131120 new db format; works with pdf files with complex pagelabels (1,2,i,ii,iii,1.1,1.2,3,4,5...)

Seems to be working here smiley

Quote
I found a workaround that doesn't need pdftk. The grid should now work with any file. If a page is earmarked that has a pagelabel other than a roman or arabic number s_e uses "pagecount" (the position of the page in the pdf file) in the grid for that pdf.

Nice!
