Title: Using LINUCMCE for a university project?
Post by: Ninja on October 06, 2010, 08:46:27 pm
Hello,

I am a university student and was hoping for some advice on how suitable LinixMCE would be for my final year project.

Basically, I am looking to provide the features of LinuxMCE to deaf users. To do this I would use open source voice recognition software, which would then convert the voice commands into VoiceXML, upon which the commands would be passed to the installed distro/host machine.

An simple example would be a user saying "Lights off" into a microphone, and the system would turn the lights off.

I would very much appreciate any advice on the feasibility of my idea, and any other thoughts you could kindly share.

Many thanks.

Or you could use lights flickering as a doorbell.
I do not know your background..........but everything is doable.

LinuxMCE is all about messages.

You would merely need to use the supplied tools to create a C++ skeleton driver for what you need. This would be classified in the Interfaces category, and would use the same commands, to forward commands to the on-screen orbiter.

Voice control for LinuxMCE would be a great addition.  It's been discussed before, however I don't think there was any progress outside of a discussion.

As Thom said, once you have the Voice-to-Command translation working, the rest is fairly trivial.  I'm sure you could find people on the forum (myself included) who would be excited to test your development and provide suggestions for additions.
