My Panasonic Toughbook does not have a built in mic... Before I trawl eBay for one does anyone recommend a good quality one that will work well with EZ builder?.... I realize I probably need to avoid the cheap ones from China that of course flood eBay auctions...

Thanks

I'm having good luck with the USB connected Blue Snowball. It has 3 different settings for sound detection.

Thanks guys, got a basic desktop mic (3.5mm jack).... Seems to work well with Windows 7 speech rec and my CF-19... Have to wait to get my EZB to see if it will be good enough for EZ Builder....

If it works with Windows speech recognition then it'll be great with EZ-Builder.

Also, you can test it in EZ-Builder before getting the EZ-B. Just play with the SR settings and commands, an EZ-B and servo do not need to be connected for the speech recognition control and scripts to make a servo control move :)

You could make a project with a simple Digital Switch set for D0
Add speech recognition and set up the phrase "turn on" to run the script command

Code:

Set(D0, on)


and "turn off" to run the script command

Code:

Set(D0, off)



The speech should make the control turn from red to green when turning on and green to red when turning off.

Ignore the debug messages though :)
