Hi to all!!

I was visiting this web site and I am impressed with your job, this game will be amazing for us, players who love submarines!!

I just want to suggest an idea:

Could you include a voice recognition engine? the player could just say "Fire!", "To the surface!", "New course: 1-8-0", etc... That would bring a new stage of realism to the game and would be appreciated by your customers.

I now it is not easy to include, but there are a lot of engines available that just could be adapted to the game for this purpose.

Thank you and continue doing this excellent work!!

Best regards,

Alex

That brings back memories of Command:Aces of the Deep. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Unfortunately the voice recognition never really worked for me.

"Fire torpedo!"

-> U-boat surfaces

"1/3 ahead!"

-> crash dive

Not mentioning the weird looks I got from my girlfriend...

voice recognition sounds (no pun) like a good idea but I dont think it would be all that good.

So I hope it doesnt get included

I like the voice feature. Its good for people who are handicapped so they can play. I know my neighbor appreciated it when AOD and Enigma came out. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Hi again,

After reading your posts, I don't really know why in you hate this functionality so much...

I play games since I was a child, I am not disabled and I am used to play too many kind of games, using mouse, keyboard, joystick...

That is not the fact; the fact is that SH3 supposed to be a Simulator. What is the meaning of Simulator? An application that tries to simulate something, so what they do is as much real as possible.

So, what is more real? to have to press a lot of keys on a keyboard or to be able to speak with your crew giving orders??? I think the perfect simulator should be the one that lets you feel a real captain, managing your crew and the submarine.

I wouldn't ask for voice recognition in a flight simulator, because pilots don't speak with their planes; but in a submarine, the captain never use the controls, never have to take the rudder, for example. He/She gives orders to others.

So, please explain me why are you so negative about this topic, because I can't understand. If you want to play a submarine game using keyboard and joystick, maybe you should buy an arcade game... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

My dreams are about some day in wich games really gets you to the real situation and makes you feel like if you were inside the situation. Anything better than feel yourself a captain speaking with your crew??

If you don't want to include a voice recognition engine, at least it would be interesting to include some kind of console in wich we can introduce commands, like "goto 45º" or "go to 200 feets", etc... Then, using another program, like GameCommander, those who want to use voice recognition could say those commands so they can be introduced directly in the orders console.

Thanks. Best regards,

Alex

Alexdreamer I agree with you Alex about voice being a good option to have. There is certain things I would perfer to use when I just cannot do it fast enough with a keyboard. I have X-keys & Focus 8200 programmable keyboards and I find myself still in need of something hands-free when I am doing heavy multi-tasking. Would be good to have a voice option I say. And for those who dont want it ,turn it off. AOD had it and everyone liked the game.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

i currently only know of the sidewinder game voice where you can map spoken voice commands to any keystroke (e.g. c is crashdive ingame map it to a recorded preset of you screaming "alaaaaarm" etc.)

dont really know if any other software is out there, but voice recognition software that can trigger keystrokes with a generic microphone should exist somewhere (too lazy too search the web right now http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif)

if its included into the game , its also have to be included locally because when i say tauchen the program just understands nothing at all when all templates for the voice recognition are in english language etc. and dont think licenscing the software is that cheap...
alternatively i suggest you scream at your display and hit the button the same time http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif

My CAOD voice recognition generally worked fine and really drew some weird stares from my family. I loved this feature, and I think it would be great to have voice recognition in SHIII. Even further, I'd like to have GERMAN voice recognition. I mean, c'mon, after you watch Das Boot 20 times, won't you know your "auftauchen" from your "auf ziebe tiefe gehen"? (Sorry don't know enough German to spell it correctly) My family will really start to worry that I'm speaking to my computer in German! I love the thought of it!

I totally disagree with voice recogition; these are my resaons:
1) it's good only for native english speakers;
2) comments of my wife;
3) reactions of my dog.

Why native english speakers only? most popular engines support many languages...

In any case, this engine could be like the Game Commander engine, in wich you can train words in your own language. After all, a simulator like SH3 will only need 30 or 40 commands at most.

If I had to be against voice recognition, my reason would be the mistakes it can made. When using Game Commander 2, it said "Alarm!" when I said "steuerbord funfzehn", and things like that. But if someone managed to develop the perfect program for voice recognition, I wouldn't disagree.

Bertgang , when you say dive? Does your dog really dive somewhere like under the bed. You must see the question marks float all over above his/her head lol http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Voice Recognition would be nice added feature, but I wouldn't consider it essential. Great if still possible though. Video 30mb looked great! I'm impressed and really hopeful for Silent Hunter III

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gifWhy don't you use for example MS Game voice recognition? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

I used that for SH II and it was a real hit for the first time to real command an Uboat with voice commands, but than I turned back to key commands, because my wife looked very ..... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

After reading some of your post, I have at least one conclusion:

Definitely, wifes are a big problem!!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Fortunatelly, I am not married and I live alone, so I can speak with my computer without worry about someone can think I am crazy...

To those who have a wife, my suggestion would be to make a speech to increase your wife awareness about our needs http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Tell her it is better to be at home, speaking with the computer, than being in the bar, drinking beer with friends, for example... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Good suggestion, if your wife don't choose to play for the opposit side; I suspect that mine works for partisans or british intelligence...

The dog is a different problem: he dislike my vocal orders, specially when can't understand the meaning. If only you can see his face...
