The four ScriptPaks voice enable Menus and functionality in Apple’s Mail, iMovie 3, iTunes 3, and iPhoto 2 iLife applications. The ScriptPaks are available for US$10.00 each; iListen 1.5.1 or greater is required.
iListen, MacSpeech’s speech recognition software, has “TalkAnywhere” technology, which lets you dictate into virtually any Mac application. It translates speech to typed text and characters anywhere you would normally type. iListen is speaker dependent, meaning you have to spend some time “training” iListen to the unique cadence and timbre of your voice. However, it can handle multiple users, each with their own speech files. ScriptPaks enhance the Voice Command and Control capabilities of iListen by voice enabling Menus and Specific functionality within the targeted application.
“This is the first set of releases for extending our Voice Command and Control capability on Mac OS X,” said MacSpeech’s Donald MacCormick. “We wanted to start with the iLife applications and grow from there.”
