Voice settings

The Host > Voice tab of the host profile provides settings for text-to-speech and speech-to-text.

To set up a profile that uses Speakeasy with Velocity, you must install the Speakeasy Tools local to the Velocity Console. For information about installing Speakeasy, see Using Speakeasy.

Speakeasy. Enable Speakeasy.

Accuspeech was deprecated as a voice provider in Velocity 2.1.34.

Language for voice prompts. Specifies the text-to-speech language package when using voice features. When specified, all text that is read uses pronunciation for the selected language. Speakeasy is capable of interpreting accents and special characters relevant to that language. If the selected language is not supported, all text is read as if it is English.

Voice. Specifies the voice file to use for text-to-speech. The voices in this list depend on the selected Language for voice prompts. The compact versions of the following voices are included in the Speakeasy .apk

English USA - Ava (F)

English USA - Samantha (F)

English USA - Tom (M)

Spanish Mexico - Juan (M)

Spanish Mexico - Paulina (F)

For other voices, or for the full version of those voices, you must install the corresponding text-to-speech language package, which can be downloaded from the Speakeasy downloads page.

Language for voice recognition. Specifies the speech-to-text language package when using voice features. When set, the Velocity Client listens only for voice commands in that language. The language engine is capable of interpreting accents and translating them to text, including any special characters.

The options for English USA and Spanish Mexico are included with the Speakeasy .apk and require no additional files when deploying to a project.

Starting volume. Sets the volume level for the speech-to-text voice. Volume levels are measured by percentage. By default, this is set to 80. This can be controlled through voice commands.

Voice logging. Enables the logging of STT (as raw audio streams) from the voice engine. This log can contain a maximum of 1,000 samples. On Android devices, audio logs are saved in the com.wavelink.velocity folder.

Use voice profiles. Allows the user to train the Speakeasy engine to recognize individual pronunciation of specific terms. The administrator who enables voice profiles provides a list of terms that the user can train. When a user creates a voice profile, they are prompted with the list of terms to pronounce and the engine creates a transcription of what the user says. Then the engine uses that transcription as an alternate pronunciation for the term. Each device can only have one voice profile at a time. For more information, see Voice profiles for Speakeasy.

After you've enabled Speakeasy, you can create context menu items for Speakeasy. You can also associate grammar files with your project as resources.
