The Unimacro project
|Great news: NatLink (including Vocola, Unimacro and probably Dragonfly) works for 99% with Dragon 12 (Februari 11, 2013).|
|Voicecode can work but is not tested yet.|
|Please consider making a
donation to Rüdiger Wilke, who did the essential work for making NatLink work with Dragon 12.|
Unimacro provides extended and advanced command grammars for Dragon NaturallySpeaking (NatSpeak or Dragon).
Unimacro connects to the NatLink⁄NatPython project, which again connects to Dragon NaturallySpeaking.
So Unimacro is an extension of an extension of the speech recognition program Dragon NaturallySpeaking.
Unimacro is free, like NatLink⁄NatPython, and can be downloaded from SourceForge.
Unimacro also aims at unifying the different open source developments that use Natlink as basis. Therefore on this website
installer for NatLink⁄Unimacro⁄
is also presented.
Positioning of Unimacro
is a general speech recognition program, sold by Nuance.
- NatLink⁄NatPython is an open source project written by Joel Gould. His general
introduction and explanation
is several years old, but still very instructive.
Read for example the general presentation about
. For a more thorough discussion, read the
written by Joel Gould probably in 2001.
- Meant as a unifying set of grammars the Unimacro project was started. The grammars that are presented on this website all run inside NatLink⁄NatPython. In other words: they are in the NatLink system.
is another development running in the NatLink system. See pages on
Vocola 2 and Unimacro
, which to use when. Vocola 2 can now use Unimacro features. (Note for Windows Speech Recognition use can try Vocola 3.)
is the third big application based on NatLink.
VoiceCode (initial advise)
presentation of Joel Gould, which he gave before the voicecode project started.
- As another application based on NatLink,
has been developed in a more modern way. It is very powerful, and integration with Unimacro and Vocola 2 will be investigated. Dragonfly also works with Windows Speech Recognition!
