As of version 2011.02.28.00 of EZ-Builder, voice recognition has been implemented and works in Windows Vista and Windows 7. It will not work in Windows XP, although we are investigating how to make it happen.
Each phrase can be user defined. And for each phrase, there is a corresponding script command. The Config window displays all available commands. The script commands are the same as the scripting engine.
The Voice Recognition Control will listen to your Default Audio Device. You will need to verify a default audio device is selected by visiting the Control Panel -> Sound and checking the Recording tab.

Upgrade to ARC Pro
ARC Early Access will give you immediate updates and new features needed to unleash your robot's potential!
Some ppl email and ask why it's so expensive. I don't understand that question. For $99 you get a complete software and hardware solution. It has taken 2 years to create. 2000+ hours.
I have never tried it, but i hear it works!
"Voice recognition was not able to start. There is either no listening device or the your operating system is not supported"
Anyone have any suggestions or has anyone experienced this?
I can confirm that under the Control Panel -> Speech that both Microphones were getting picked up and working on the audio level bar.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Well I did try what you said and set my mic up as the default device using the control panel and configured the mic and all that good stuff.
I was also able to get voice recognition working in Wordpad I just had to click on my mic icon in the lower right taskbar and then hit the Diction icon as well.
I then was pumped that it was all working and went again to try it in ARC but had the same result, the same error listed above. I was able to get speech synthesis working though which I believe also gets installed at the same time you install the voice recognition software.
I was getting the computer to call me "Master!" on Joystick button presses, quite funny, but I'm still stuck on getting the Voice recognition to work in XP.
Anyone else had any luck with Voice/speech recognition in WinXP???
Is there a chance that there may be a solution to the XP compatibility issue with voice recognition?
Here's a plus: Native WinXP can run off CF cards (233X speed and higher recommended), I know because I have a small form factor PC doing that very thing. As storage technology improves we should be able to boot XP off microSD cards without much lag and run windows on very small devices which gives us the ability to use ARC on-board our robots (as some are already doing)!!! I'm sure you already saw where I was going with that
Please don't discount XP as it can run on as little 4GB of storage, and that's without optimization. So I can see all the higher end electronics (laptops, PCs, etc) will move to Win7 and higher versions, but on the horizon we'll probably be seeing smaller form factor electronics (cell phones, tiny netbooks, etc.) running native XP.
We are still living in the past. Have you made any headway on voice recogniion for us XP dinosaurs?
The list is very very very long
