is it possible to create a MyIntag overlay with custom identifiers instead of generic numbers?
I’d like to use my voice to play chess. However, it feels highly unnatural to refer to the fields by random numbers instead of their proper name.
For example, I’d like to announce a move by saying something like “e2” - “e4” instead of “15” - “33”.
Is it possible to create an overlay like that in any way?
Doesn’t have to have a GUI. If it’d need editing some XML file, I’m fine with that.
Thank you and best regards!
is it possible to create a MyIntag overlay with custom identifiers instead of generic numbers?Not at this time.You could add alternative spoken forms to the numbers in the xml file but you might have recognition problems with this. So, if you haven’t done this before, be prepared to spend some time on this. (But, feel free to continue to ask questions.)You could create an overlay for the chess board like this:and then use an algebraic notation to add alternative spoken forms to the numbers in the xml fileSpecifically, you’d add spoken forms to the ‘1to50ad’ list in the showCustomOverlayActive.xml located in the C:ProgramDataVoiceTeachVoiceComputerCommandsCustom directorylike this snippet:1to50ad1one2two3three4four5five6six7seven8eight1a one2a two3a three4a four5a five6a six7a seven8a eight9nine10ten11eleven12twelve13thirteen14fourteen15fifteen16sixteen9be one10be two11be three12be four13be five14be six15be seven16be eight17seventeenRestart VoiceComputer after you do this and then test the commands. You may have problems with ‘b’s’ and 'd’s.The most reliable spoken forms are the ham radio / military alphabet, alpha three, bravo five…Important: If you accidentally create any syntax errors, VoiceComputer will crash and won’t restart.Here’s an example of a syntax error7a seven/item>a ‘<’ symbol is missing. It should be:7a sevenSo, before you modify an xml file, make a copy of the original xml file. if you have problems, you can attach the xml file to another post, so we can find the syntax error and then you can copy the original over the modified file, so you can continue to use VoiceComputer.Also, after you finish modifying an xml file, copy the file over the existing file in theC:Program Files (x86)VoiceTeachVoiceComputerhelpVC_FilesCustom_files directory.(The Custom_files directory contains the master files. When you make configuration changes, the files from the Custom_files directory overwrite the files in the Custom directory.
Hi Bernard and Ron,
I appreciate you taking the time to respond to my question.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
I regularly have to edit XML, so that shouldn’t be a hurdle.
I’ll try experimenting with the spoken forms and see how that goes recognitionwise.
