End of Day 1

So, at the end of the first day, one thing is clear:  It’s not just easy to use the speech recognition libraries in .Net 3.0’s System.Speech.Recognition libraries, it’s really really freaking easy to use them.  It’s just a handful of lines to start recognizing speech.

The harder part is figuring out what you want to recognize it and how to deal with it after you’ve recognized the speech.

There’s really not that much left for me to do with the speech recognition at this point.  I wanted to spent time to get it working but it didn’t actually take any time to get it working…  Any more work will be toward a specific use, which I wasn’t really planning on doing here.  So then, that means tomorrow will focus on the facial recognition side of the project.

reform might be the poetry

Like I said… Speech recognition sucks.

Instead of doing a grammar with choices, like I did before, you can use a DictationGrammar. Free form dictation. Free form, like beatnik poetry. As in it ends up making as much sense as beatnik poetry.

I have no idea what I said, but it certainly was not the following:

into the earth and one half of this room here we are we’re on

After that sentence got derailed, for a fun exercise, I decided to see how the speech recognizer would interpret the words of others, say, for instance, the Constitution:

we have people of the United States or 11 for you, justice for domestic front of the provider, and jail where welfare and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity Jordan’s challenge this constitution the united states of America

And to that, I believe Madison would have said “Here we are, we’re on!”
