Alternative To Speech Recognition As A Fail Safe Method

I am looking to use JD as an assistant in a comedy show I am doing for children. I know the children can create a lot of noise. Therefore I need to find the best fallback if speech recognition does not work. Is a keyboard shortcut the best alternative?

You can use the Key Control (https://synthiam.com/Support?id=181)

That allows you to map a code to each key on the keyboard

Alternatively, if your presentation is scripted, a simple joystick or WiiMote button can be pressed to advance to the next part of the script

Lastly, this sounds super fun! Jealous that you get to perform something like that :D

Oh smart idea! Never thought of glyphs. That’s a good one. You can also do qr codes! I think there’s a the robot program episode on that as well.

Hi, Thank you I think that the key control would be the best . As the glyphs and QR codes maybe an issue if I am working in a low light environment. I also have a MYO band. could I use it?

The myo could be used, but it’s not a very reliable input device. The actions aren’t always detected by the myo hardware. I find it inconvenient for detecting actions.

The only thing I like about it is controlling servos with the accelerometer.
