Invoking FARR via Speech Recognition
« on: May 14, 2011, 03:07:15 AM »
Inspired by recent VoicePics activity, gave bringing up FARR's window a try via AHK.

Apart from ensuring appropriate speech recognition is installed (SAPI 5.1 here), this approach comes down to customizing code posted at the top of:

  Voice Recognition COM

The modifications made include:

  • Ensuring the appropriate COM.ahk file is available
  • Choosing the word to be recognized
  • Arranging for an appropriate hotkey to be sent upon recognition
Now saying "Mouser" within earshot of an appropriate microphone may show or hide FARR's main window here :)

Thanks for the tip!

Don't you find the ensuing screenful of cat pictures faintly annoying?   ;)
