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.
Benefit to Fedora
This feature will provide a new, advanced way of interaction and will enhance accessibility for people with disabilities.
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 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.."
Old sotfware dependencies are (from original website): libwnck-dev, libatspi-dev, gnome-panel-dev, startup-notification-devel libtool gnome-common intltool cmusphinx3
Leave this feature out of the release. No user impact.
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.
