Looks like it's back up now

I uploaded the version I had locally in case you still can't access the other ones


Hey, i've managed to implement this in c# and visual studio. Look for the SpeechRecognitionEngine class (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.speech.recognition.speechrecognitionengine%28v=vs.110%29.aspx). It uses the built-in windows 7 speech recognition feature and any usb mike connected to the computer.

Something like this:
Code: [Select]

class SpeechRecConsole
        static void Main(string[] args)
            // Create an in-process speech recognizer for the en-US locale.
            using (
            SpeechRecognitionEngine recognizer =
              new SpeechRecognitionEngine(
                new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US")))

                // Create and load a dictation grammar.
                recognizer.LoadGrammar(new DictationGrammar());

                // Add a handler for the speech recognized event.
                recognizer.SpeechRecognized +=
                  new EventHandler<SpeechRecognizedEventArgs>(recognizer_SpeechRecognized);

                // Configure input to the speech recognizer.

                // Start asynchronous, continuous speech recognition.

                // Keep the console window open.
                while (true)

        // Handle the SpeechRecognized event.
        static void recognizer_SpeechRecognized(object sender, SpeechRecognizedEventArgs e)
            if (e.Result.Text.ToLower() == "lights on") {
                 SerialPort port = new SerialPort("COM6", 9600);
                port.Write("lights on!!");

Wow that's pretty cool Petrovinsky. I'm always thinking about how I should start learning visual studio and more c++.

Is there a way to program the whole BitVoicer sketch onto the Arduino so that it can run as a standalone unit without having to connect it to the computer and starting BitVoicer every time? I feel like this might be very difficult or impossible because you would have to write the entire BitVoicer program onto the Arduino. Any thoughts?

Hey, so I tried to upload your sketch, and I got the error "bitvoicerserial does not name a type"? any ideas?
means your library isnt linking into the sketch properly, im having the same problem atm, by pc is usually a pain when bringing in new libraries, trouble is, i cant remember what i did last time this happened :l did you get anywhere with it?


I got Bitvoicer to work with an Arduino Uno. However, when I switched to using a Arduino Pro Mini (3.3V, 8MHz), I was unable to calibrate the microphone on the BitVoice desktop program. I am getting "0 samples per second" and "Invalid Reference Audio Level"

Anyone got this problem too and manage to solve it? I know its got something to do with the serial command from the PC to the arduino thats initiates the calibration process. Its somehow just not receiving that command.
