Thank you! as a recently disabled developer, this is an INVALUABLE tool that you've created for handicapped developers. OMG I can not thank you enough!!!!!!!
EDIT: 7/9 – just installed Visual Studio 2013 preview edition. And then I added this extension. And for me it is working perfectly! Do you have any plans on extending this to allow the user to dictate code inside the IDE code window?
Add a suspend command - with windows recognition 'Sleeping' in the background 'Suspend' ignores input - say 'Start Listening' to wake up windows speech recognition to 'type' in the editor - the extension ignores input until a 'Resume' command.
'p' 'r' 'i' 'n' 't' '(' '"' 'Hello' 'World' '"'" ')' ';'
There don't seem to be any VS commands to actually type characters into the document - this would supply a work around for such cases.
But - if anyone knows of a command to enter text into a document I'd love to know it :)
Ok, so I love how everything is working, I work with a programmer who has no arms and uses her big toe to program with. If you could add an option, to run all the time, then it could run without an alt-v, and take your commands at anytime.
The goal would be to only use your voice to control everything, that your keyboard does.
Also if you could design it to add or delete words in the code, that would be great!
Add the following at the end of the 'OnSpeechRecognized' method in VoiceExtensionPackage.cs
_isListening = true;
_dte.StatusBar.Text = "I'm listening...";
Activating it via Alt-V or via Tools->Start Listening displays "I didn't quite get that. Please try again." in the status bar *immediately*, before I've had a chance to say anything.
As such, I've not been able to get this working.
Certainly does not work - with windows voice recognition enabled or disabled - VS 2012 Ultimate, 2013 express 2012 Professional.
'I didn't quite get that. Please try again.'
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Tried speaking with Alt+V pressed, directly afterwards, or directly after pressing start listening menu option.
Checked mike levels etc.
Any suggestions - or this this just a pure waste of time and simply does not work ?
I am losing the use of my right arm - I hope this is not some sad joke !
code change needed in 'InitializeSpeechRecognition'
add line gb.Culture = CultureInfo.CreateSpecificCulture("en-GB");
var gb = new GrammarBuilder(c);
gb.Culture = CultureInfo.CreateSpecificCulture("en-GB");
var g = new Grammar(gb);
in file VoiceExtensionPackage.cs
(or add your particular language code)
I couldn`t understand how to activate the Source Control commands, i.e. how do I activte the manual command: right click -> source control -> view history ? or how do I compare changes in Pending Changes tab?
How do I activate the #Tfs commands?
Does anyone know if this can be made to work with Resharper. It looks great, but almost everything I do is through Resharper commands, and therefore, would not get much use from it if it only worked with VS commands.
I couldn't get it to install..
