Feature suggestion

Recommended Posts

Hi, enjoyed your Cosford video, I wasn't able to make it unfortunately but I would have asked this question had I been there!  Do you think it possible to include a voice control feature with chaseplane?  You know, switching between cameras by saying 'pilot', 'chase', 'pedestal'.  I love the product, along with TrackIR I couldn't bear to be without it now.  Regards, Mark

Hi Mark,

The built-in speech recognition in Windows is not reliable enough for us to include such a feature.
If we build a mobile application at some point, we might include this as a feature.

Regards,
Keven

You might be able to assign keys to each of the cameras, then use something like VAC to switch between them.

I have a copy of VAC.  Give me a few days and I'll run a few tests..

Hi Marco,

Sorry for the delay.  I played with CP and VAC a bit and it worked pretty well. 

The biggest downside that I saw was that the VAC command is paired with a keyboard shortcut.   If the profile has a lot of views and you want to be able to access all of them verbally, then you'll need a lot of keyboard shortcuts.   

You might also need a VAC profile for each aircraft, unless you keep the naming convention of the views consistent between aircraft.  There is a way to overcome some of that, but its a bit messy.

In the end, it depends on how badly you want speech and how much you'll be using it.  VAC is $18, but there are similar programs which might be less expensive.   Likely none of them are perfect solutions.

If you're in no hurry, then I'll do a follow-up once I've used it a bit.
