Input from the mic is registering.
Options can be set in the tools panel.
Only recognised phrases get displayed in the logging pane.
What does not
Speech recognition does work after a fashion however response of the application is very slow and can take several minutes for it to recognise a command. When running from terminal after a recognising a command will continually write out
0053:fixme:explorerframe:taskbar_list_ThumbBarAddButtons iface 0x735a038, hwnd 0x40058, cButtons 5, pButton 0x7325df0 stub!
until the main window indicates a command has been recognised. Does not show unrecognised words or sentences on the log pane as it does in windows.
Configured actions are not sent to the active window.
What was not tested
Ability to send key pressed commands into games running natively or via Proton/SteamPlay.
Following these instructions (https://github.com/mk-pmb/mssp...) to install the speech platform components, VoiceAttack installs and does run but is very slow at recognising configured phrases and does not pass any keypresses to the active linux window.
