Feature request, clicking

  • Is there a way to replace speaking “left-click”, “right-click” with different words?
  • Could triple-click be added?

Yes. You can replace left-click, right-click by editing our command files.

A triple-click command could be added. But, I don’t recommend it. I’ve done this a few times and found that it takes a lot of experimentation to get it to work in a specific application

If you want to replace left-click…

  1. VoiceComputer’s command files weren’t designed to be edited by end-users so there is NO syntax checking. - VoiceComputer will not open if there are syntax errors.
  2. We didn’t design our command files to be edited because doing so would violate Dragon’s EULA. Other add-ons do this, but that’s their choice.
  3. We or some of our users will make minor edits in your command files for a nominal fee. ($50.)
  4. If you wish to edit the file(s) yourself:
    a) Backup all files that you’ll be editing to a second directory. (Restore the backed up file if VoiceComputer crashes or won’t start.
    b) Download a free XML editor and be vigilant about syntax errors.

To answer your question:

If you’re using the VC Mouse commands, you can edit the
mouse1.xml file if you’re using one monitor
or
mouse_mon3.xml file if you’re using 2-3 monitors.
C:\ProgramData\VoiceTeach\VoiceComputer\Commands\Custom

Search for the list of mouse click commands in the xml file.

  <List>
    <name>mouseclick2</name>
    <items>
      <item>click\leftclick</item>
      <item>double\doubleclick</item>
      <item>right\rightclick</item>
      <item>click\left click</item>
      <item>click\button click</item>
      <item>double\double click</item>
      <item>right\right click</item>
    </items>
  </List>

The syntax of the command is as follows:

      <item>right\rightclick</item>

‘right’ before the ‘’ is the instruction to the code,
the ‘rightlclick’ after the ‘’ is the spoken form of the command.

To add the command ‘right’, just add this line to the list:
(I’d suggest that you don’t delete commands but you add what you want.

  <item>right\right</item>

as in

mouseclick2

click\leftclick
double\doubleclick
right\rightclick
right\right
click\left click
click\button click
double\double click
right\right click

Test, to see if it works.
Restart VoiceComputer. If there’s a syntax error, VoiceComputer won’t restart.

If it works, copy the file over the existing file in C:\Program Files (x86)\VoiceTeach\VoiceComputer\help\VC_Files\Custom_files

The custom_files directory contains the default(master) files. The default files ARE COPIED OVER the files in C:\ProgramData\VoiceTeach\VoiceComputer\Commands\Custom
whenever you change VoiceComputer’s configuration.

I am using multiple monitors, however, I don’t see mouse_mon3.xml in that folder.

when you configure the mouse commands for two monitors, the mouse_mon3.xml command file is copied into C:\ProgramData\VoiceTeach\VoiceComputer\Commands\Custom from the default/master directory:C:\Program Files (x86)\VoiceTeach\VoiceComputer\help\VC_Files\Custom_files.

If the file isn’t copied, the mouse commands don’t work. What

What is the rationale for choosing the multiple monitors setting in Voice Computer? I used three monitors, and it has worked fine without selecting that setting. Would I get better performance with it on? Three
