Start Listening – System.Speech.Recognition

After having tested the speech synthesis part of SAPI, this post will present a little example to do speech recognition (SR). The goal of our little exploration is to listen to what a user says (using the English language) and “ignoring” anything but the word “Quit” (or any word that closely resembles “Quit”). This goal…


Testing System.Speech.Synthesis

Before testing SWI-Speech, I thought I pay the System.Speech (SAPI .NET managed code) a little visit. What I wanted to achieve is really simple. Use System.Speech to say “Hello World” or any other user-defined string. In order to achieve this highly ambitious goal, one needs to … Start the Speech Synthesis Engine Configure the Speech…

I haven’t noticed that until recently but find it quite nice. Also, I know it has been announced some time ago, but now, MSR advertises it more…


SWI-CS-PL – A First Glimpse

My exploration of Prolog and .NET led me to the C# interface to SWI-Prolog developed by Uwe Lesta. In the following I will present my first steps, i.e. the reproduction of the faculty Prolog program from C#. Before interoperating with SWI Prolog make sure you have correctly setup the following: Set the Path environment variable…

P# – first glimpse

According to the PSharp manual: “P# is a Prolog implementation designed for use with Microsoft’s .NET Framework. Specifically it translates Prolog to C# source code, allowing interoperation with C# and hence with other .NET languages. This allows the development of software which combines Prolog back-ends with C# front-ends.” and as such I wanted to try…
