You can view and copy the source of this page. ====== Here is the draft of the manual addendum I'm working on ===== Using Simon To use Simon you have to install various elements and do some training by following the First Use Wizard. When you're done with this you arrived at what is called the Overview Screen: This comprises four sections: Scenarios Training Acoustic Model Recognition You need to do a number of things beyond the Wizard. For starters, you need to choose a recognition model for the simond server. There are two choices: CMUSphinx and HTK Julius. Both are third party applications. The openSUSE repositories do not contain sphinxtrain and trying to install it directly from a tar.gz fails with undefined reference to `lineiter_lineno' We are not able to find the source of that error. We then install the HTK Julius model as described at: http://userbase.kde.org/Simon/Installation#Optional:_HTK_installation_2 But it fails with: Makefile:77: *** missing separator (did you mean TAB instead of 8 spaces?). Stop. Examining Makefile at line 77 shows that the argument $(BOOK) is used instead of what should be $(HTKBOOK) but correcting that does not correct the error. So we are pretty much confounded until we can install a recognition engine. Beyond that however, you need to install some plugins to proceed any further. You can install plugins from the Overview screen by clicking on the second button under the Scenario section. In my case it is Open “Standard”. This brings up a new screen labeled Direct Execution Of Simon Commands. On the left there are 5 icons: Word List Training Grammar Context Commands There are two panels to the right. There is a button called Manage Plugins under the first panel. Click on Manage plugins and this brings up the Manager Actions screen: This has three tabs: General Lists Autorun clicking on the Add button rings an Add actions screen: This has a list of all the available plugins. Dictation is the second one. Select it and Click OK. It will be added to the Manage Actions list on the left. all of these plugins are described in the manual beginning that section 4.8 commands on page 86. highlight the desired plug in and click OK. this adds the plug in to the command list. ====================================================== So definitely a labour of love, but a work in progress, unless I'm seriously missing something: how to install the engines...
