ProNotes Voice Tools
- Platform: Windows
ProNotes Voice Tools are designed to bring
the speech recognition capabilities of the IBM
VoiceTypeTM Dictation System for Windows into any program without
the need for the programmer to directly interface with the speech
engine at the API level. There are five tools, as described below,
which are all available in three forms: Visual Basic(TM) Custom
Controls (known as VBXs), 16-bit OLE Custom Controls, and 32-bit OLE
Custom Controls. The tools are intended for use by Windows(TM)
developers working with Windows 3.1(TM), Windows for Workgroups
3.11(TM), Windows NT 3.51 Workstation(TM), and Windows 95(TM). The
custom controls can be utilized with any application development
environment which supports the use of such controls (e.g. Visual Basic
and Visual C++).
- Playback and Record
- An object which allows developers to use the IBM Speech Engine to
record and play back sound files. Can be used to add voice prompts and
to allow end users to record and playback sound files.
- Voice Button
- An object having standard button properties and behavior, which can
additionally be controlled by voice. The button can also be used as a
label or a 3D panel.
- Dictation Window
- A text box that allows free dictation, voice macro utilization, and
correction by voice. Each Dictation Window has access to global and
context sensitive vocabularies for both command and dictation. There
are three correction modes.
- Voice List Box
- Has standard list box properties and behavior, but can additionally
be controlled by voice. A user can select items by pronouncing the
entry's text or the entries can be numbered and selected accordingly.
- Voice Navigator
- Provides navigation by voice within an application developed with
the Voice Tools, between voice-enabled objects described above, as well
as some standard objects found within the application.
