acoustic model gnome-voice-control

The results I got using Gnome-voice-control were worse than I expected after seeing the demonstration videos. I could only use about three commands successfully.

I was wondering whether this could be caused by the acoustic model? I probably used the sphinx2-hmm-6k acoustic model, because I installed gnome-voice-control under ubuntu directly from the repostories. 

Was there another acoustic model used for the screencast?  For instance one that was especially adapted to Raphael’s voice?

Will it be wise in my case to use the model from VoxForge?  (I have donated about an hour and a half of speech) If so, how do I replace it?

Thanks for any pointers!

Robin

Hm, that's strange. Did you enable accessibility? Actually you need to enable it in order to move through interface. Without accessibility only a few commands will work.

If it will be broken still, please record a few commands and send them to me (nshmyrev@yandex.ru)

About voxforge model, it's a very important task really and should work better for you. But nobody created voxforge for sphinx model up to now. David promised me to run it on CMU cluster once setup we'll be prepared (27 hours should process about a week on usual machine) but someone should sit down and prepare configuration for sphinxtrain. Also if we'll have voxforge model we can do real tests with it (David can measure it on standard wsj and hub test sets I suppose).

I went to:

preferences>Universal Access>Assistive Technology Preferences 

There I checked the checkbox for:

Enable assistive technologies

Is this what you mean? If not can you give me the names of the menu items.

It still only recognizes

- minimize window

- next window

- close window

With "previous window" it starts evolution.

For the rest nothing (e.g. "file", " edit" etc) seems to work.

Tell me if I missed something... if not I'll record some commands. Do you want menu entries such as "file", "edit" etc?

Right, but you have to relogin after that. Also please check that you are using C locale, native local won't work. i.e. gedit should have File menu.

> With "previous window" it starts evolution.

Right, as far as I remember there was no previous command and no OOV filter

> For the rest nothing (e.g. "file", " edit" etc) seems to work.

If "next window" command works fine, the most probable reason is missing ally. You can try accerciser to check if allyis present and can explore UI.

I even rebooted, because I thought I remembered having read something like that.

I'll check out the rest as soon as I'm home again.

> i.e. gedit should have File menu

You mean simply a standard menu File etc? I think I have that too.

So I probably miss ally. Never heard of accerciser though... Where  do I find that?

Thanks,

Robin

Found and installed accerciser. It froze when I started it. I'll try again next weekend. I'll let you know my findings.

Please do. It should be rather straightforward really.

Accerciser now works, but how do I use it to check if ally is present?

If you can explore gedit UI with it, everything is fine.

Looks okay I think ... I'll send you 2 screenshots. One of gedit and one of accerciser exploring gedit. Let me know if it looks like I checked the things needed.
