Hello, I am a new MCE user, so far I really love the software.
I am starting from the basic: editing already available scripts and writing a simple script to interface with PROATC-X.

I have a question related to scripts:

It is possible to add a command to pause a script until a specific "voice command" is issued?
I now you can insert a PAUSE=xx, but I would like to share with my FO some of the activity to setup the plane, for example:
The F/O speaks "Captain set the altimeter" the script goes in pause.
..... I set the Altimeter... then I speak "done" and the script resumes.

thanks

Welcome aboard Roberto.

One way to do it is to have the original script end right before you're supposed to set altimeter.

Then create a new script with trigger sentence "done setting altimeter" (or whatever you want to say. Just make the command long enough so that it doesn't trigger by accident).

The new script will then have the other portion of the previous one.

FS++ thanks for your replay and nice suggestion.

But it makes things more complicated to achive my idea.

let me explain what I had in mind using two great pieces of software: MCE and Chase Plane all together.

Scenario:

My PMDG DC6 is in cold and dark, it has a lot of switches, levers, rotaries all around the cabin.
I am totally lost!!!!!
But my FO in reality is my teacher....
He start telling me in sequence all the setup and check actions I have to fulfill to start up the plane.

I can achieve the above writing a scrip like this:

Using voxkey comands to control Chase Plane views to zoom where the action has to be done
Using Notify= to receive instructions from my FO
Using Pause= to give me the time to comply with the action 

Now instead of using the Pause= command (for which is difficult to define the correct waiting time) It would be nice to have a voice trigger.

Yes, probably MCE il not designed for the above but It's like a LEGO it expands your creativity.  

I think that a script like this (even without Chase Plane) could help people to master a new plane quite easily and faster then reading manuals taking notes or spending time watching youtube videos expecially is they don't master English very well...like me!!!!

Just an idea.
