I am helping my brother integrate a Slimserver into a whole-home audio
system. Getting physically connected is fine, but the control is what we're
looking at. Has anyone successfully integrated some sort of voice
recognition for the Slimserver to launch playlists, artists, or general
control (next song, next album, etc.) - or know of a more friendly MP3
server-type software that integrates with voice recognition?



Thanks,



Jared Valentine

You could try HAL 2000. This is a voice activated home automation system
and has MP3 capabilities. www.homeautomatedliving.com

I heard of some Philips technology (patented up the wazoo, probably, but that shouldn't stop you from trying it at home) which lets you control the music with voice commands.

The thing is, the mic is linked into a DSP system which cancels out the music before it gets to the voice recognition. So supposedly, you can still issue voice commands even with the music turned up so loud that you can't even hear yourself. :)

I just thought it was a clever idea - not a small undertaking, but not impossible since the computer knows what's playing.
