Detailed Description

Goal of this feature is to build a voice control software in order to help users to interact with the system. This feature may be also useful for people with phisical disabilities.

Already exists a good start point, an older gnome applet named Gnome Voice Control. It's based on CMU Sphinx and GStreamer. Development of Gnome Voice Control is ended by some years, but I think it's still interesting.

This is only a proposal, my programming skills are weak.

Benefit to Fedora

This feature will provide a new, advanced interaction way and will enhance accessibility for people with disabilities.

Scope

I suppose the big work is to port old application source into new Gnome libraries (Gnome Voice Control isn't updated since 2007).

How To Test

Hardware problems ecluded (audio cards), I think this feature needs only some usability tests.

User Experience

User could activate the option "Voice Control" from "Accessibility Applet", so it can start to give some voice commands to pc. Like "BROWSER, MAIL, POWER OFF, etc.."

Dependencies

Old sotfware dependencies are (from original website): libwnck-dev, libatspi-dev, gnome-panel-dev, startup-notification-devel libtool gnome-common intltool cmusphinx3

Contingency Plan

Leave this feature out of the release. No user impact.

Release Notes

Fedora now supports a Voice Control. Thanks to an advanced Voice Recognition software, Now Fedora can receive some base voice commands directly from your voice.
