Speech Recognition Via Mobile?

Assistance Requested

Help Wayno with their question and receive $10 of EZ-Credit to get more robots and parts from our store. The following information was provided about their previous efforts searching tutorials for a resolution.

Wayno claims to have checked these sources:


I am having a great time learning this whole new world of playing with robots and developing a set of bots to help teach kids English here in Korea.

I have two developer kits so that groups will put together a robot then practice voice commands although it seems that speech recognition does not work via mobile?

I will only have one computer in the class and ideally the robot will not be near the computer so the class tablets seemed idea to run them via the mobile app.

If i am confined to work via the once computer will I be able to have two robots running at once ?


I have found a few conversations, tutorials and activities that may help with your question. Take a look at these links. I've sorted them by what I believe to be most relevant but that is not always the case as I'm still learning.

Also, consider reviewing the Learn section for informative lessons and activities. Check it out!


That's great to hear Smile

1) To have two robots run at once, you can "sort of" hack it with EZ-Builder but only one Movement Panel is allowed, so it's a lot of work. Otherwise simply load two copies of EZ-Builder - which makes the most sense. Much like to have multiple MS Word documents, you have two copies of MS Word running... etc

2) You can see what features are available on the learn page for the Mobile Interface Builder here:

*Note: not all features of EZ-Builder PC can be supported in EZ-Builder Mobile due to processor and OS limitations. As you are aware, your phone is not a computer, nor is it as powerful.



If the class tablets are running Windows 8 (not the RT version), then you could use the speech recognition option with the Windows download version of EZ-Builder.


Thanks Dj and Steve.

I probably should have just checked the idea for two versions of the Ez builder.

Although it would have been ideal to have each robot working off a connected tablet with the voice recognition I will still be able to run the class via the room computer.

The tablets are Android so no go with the Windows 8 way but thanks Steve.



Wayno - over time we are adding more features to EZ-Builder Mobile


@DJ Sures Is there a way for those who use a win 8 tablet to run the Mobil interface on the windows version? If you use the win 8 tablet you will get the use of voice recognition but loose the fancy graphic interface the apps produce. If you could make a option to emulate the Mobil interface in windows at full screen of course and add the options of voice control to the mobil app builder that might be a real nice setup.


@Anthony, use the custom HTTP server and make a fancy web based controller, you'll have more options available to you too such as animated gifs, flash etc.
