Perlbox Voice is a voice command system, aiming to provide an easy to use, easy to configure application that connects spoken human words to computer commands, and vice versa. It allows the user to easily configure vocabularies that consist of "commands" and "responses". When the operator speaks a command (such as "Web browser"), the computer will execute the designated response (e.g. "mozilla"). Versions 0.7 and greater have extendable 'desktop plugins' that allow for desktop (KDE, etc.) navigation and control.
One of the good ones
It is software like projects like Lynx that make open source systems so good. They are not the most popular/flashy/catchy, but rock solid in my opinion. I used to use lynx for browsing for information, it almost made modem connections useful. Now I use it because it is powerful. Good work.
This is a must for Perl programmers.
I have to say, I am more exited about this piece of software than any I have used in some time. I can write Perl scripts inline without loosing usability from a shell like Bash. All the functions seem to work, you can open file handles and read from them in a Perl manner. It rocks.
