#715 Request: Speech recognition for TightVNC Viewer

UI improvements


I did not know who to contact. If you are reading this, would it be possible to forward it to right contact?


Is it possible to use speech recognition with TightVNC? If no, would it be possible to test TightVNC Viewer with Speech recognition softwares (Windows and Linux softwares)? Most of my work gets done on linux systems as I am an SoC verification engineer. I am not able to send text into linux systems via TightVNCViewer.(only keystrokes go through) Please kindly help!

I am diagnosed with ‘Wrist tendinitis’/’tenosynovitis’ due to RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury). Hence I started using speech recognition as much as possible. On windows, controls are 80% accurate and dictation is 50% accurate. With practice, I am trying to use keyboard and voice recognition just the same way a pianist would sing.

I think with the available wealth of research in speech recognition, it is possible to get a decent accuracy
1. for coding (UVM, systemverilog) as there are predefined set of keywords, classes, functions etc.
2. for GUI tool controls

An example of coding:

to see in editor "class myenv extends uvm_env;"

I would

Say: "class" type: myenv Say:"extends uvm_env;"

For GUI usage, tool vendors/user could come up with a number of useful features similar to keyboard shortcuts.

These features may be implemented on both Windows & Linux platforms. (Hope in few years, not only myself, all engineers are able to dictate their code into a tool and debug it too!)

Thanks for reading my request!

P.S.: I used windows speech recognition to write this e-mail as I am suffering from wrist pain. Please kindly ignore grammar mistakes.
