[REL] sh4speech - voice command for SH4
shSpeech - Voice Command for Silent Hunter 4 by minsc_tdp
sh4speech is a voice command program for Silent Hunter 4, but could be adapted to other games (and has been adapted to SH3 now!) It currently supports everything the game can do, allowing you to issue all orders completely hands-free, which frees up your mouse to only manipulate the cameras and periscope, map, and other things that traditionally did not involve spoken orders.
It is extremely quick, responsive, reliable, and the recognition is great if you follow the readme and spend a few minutes training your speech system and if you adjust your microphone often. The first time you hear someone bark "Yes sir!" in response to an order you barked yourself at your crew, your whole SH experience will change forever!

Silent Hunter 3
TomcatTwo modded this to work with Silent Hunter 3. To be honest, he put my work to shame! He added a lot of commands, even in German, and his documentation and immersion level is outstanding! Check it out here. I'm glad to have contributed the core technology to this awesome project. Congratulations TomcatTwo on an awesome release!
Mar 01 2008 (2.54) - Fixed resolution scaling problems for TomcatTwo's SH3 mod (dials should work better in this one vs. 2.53)
Mar 01 2008 (2.53) - Fixed resolution scaling problems for TomcatTwo's SH3 mod
Feb 23 2008 (2.52) - Added "Pause Recognition" and "Resume Recognition" commands with underlying code support
Feb 19 2008 (2.51) - Added additional launch BAT files for left-handed users with underlying code support. Untested.
Feb 13 2008 (2.50) - Important adjustments made to location of voice_commands.csv and press_to_talk.csv files. If you have customized your CSV files, you must read the ChangeLog! Other minor adjustments nobody will really notice.
Feb 9 2008 (2.25) - Fixes a problem where extra spaces at the end of voice commands would cause them to not work
Feb 5 2008 (2.24) - Adds support for multiple "hold keys", so you can do CTRL-SHIFT-ALT-X instead of being limited to only one, where you could only do CTRL-X or SHIFT-X or ALT-X. See the ChangeLog for full explanation.
See the full changelog for a complete history of changes.
