After a thorough search for a few months,recently purchased an EasyVR voice recognition board [http://www.veear.eu/products/easyvr] to integrate speech recogniton into an embedded design.A Mega ADK [http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardADK] was chosen as the microcontroller board for the design and has been programmed to run a few motors and other controls.
Now, I am having issues interfacing the EasyVR with the Arduino board.I am not sure whether it is because Arduino's upgrade to it's software from 1.0 to 1.0.1 or it's something to do with the Voice recognition board itself.For now,according to the instructions on the EasyVR website, given Arduino files have been added to Arduino's libraries with all the additional pin connections.However when trying to "connect" to EasyVR via Arduino while connected to PC through EasyVR commander, the following error message pops up.(it doesn't allow to go any further prompting that connecting to the Arduino port is unsuccessful)
" A 'AVR/Arduino Mega' device has been found,but the 'bridge" software is not responding or it is outdated. You need to manually download the updated "bridge" software to the device (see instuctions)."
I don't get ,what this bridge software is ? Does this mean I might have to run Arduino's new software on the MEga?
If any of you guys have worked with this EasyVR board, it would be much appreciated if can advise on this.
