Speech recognition package for controlling the UI?
« on: February 28, 2024, 02:56:19 pm »
Does Lazarus have a speech recognition package that can be used to control the UI?

I guess the speech recognition part is separate from the UI control part, so lets focus on the speech recognition part. Is there a native Pascal version or do those available link to libraries written in other languages, usual C and C++?
Lazarus 3.0/FPC 3.2.2

On Windows it is easy: The COM based speech API (SAPI) for which there are many examples on the web. Been using it since early 2000's. For Linux there is something similar, but forgot the name.
The current SAPI5 or higher is pretty good.

For cross platform:

Object Pascal programmers should get rid of their "component fetish" especially with the non-visuals.
