This control will send requests that it receives from speech recognition to the PandoraBot online server. The PandoraBot online server will respond with a message from the artificial intelligent engine. You may use the default engine provided as an example with the control, or create your own.
Speech Recognition Training
*Note: This control uses speech recognition features to identify spoken word. It is important that you use a proper microphone and train the computer to understand your voice. More information about training and microphones can be found here in the speech recognition control help. To train your speech recognition, visit the Control Panel and locate the Speech icon. Under the Speech icon, you will find wizards to help your computer learn your voice.
If you find that the built in speech recognition of pandoraBot is not recognizing phrases even after training with a good microphone, there is an alternative. The Microsoft Bing Speech Recogntion plugin works the best, or Google Speech Recognition plugin is popular as well. These two services use an improved speech recognition system that is much more reliable than the built in speech recognition.
Requires Internet Connection
This EZ-Builder Control requires an internet connection, which means your EZ-B v4 should be in Client Mode and connected to a router. View the EZ-B v4 WiFi Modes Activity to change the mode. The Control will connect to the Pandora Bot A.I. Server which allows you to have a verbal conversation with your robot. This control uses the entire local language dictionary, so a headset or nice microphone is necessary. Also, you will
benefit from training the computer for your voice if you have not already done so.
Create a Personality
Visit PandoraBots, and you can setup your own unique A.I. bot. By default, the control
is configured with the EZ-Robot Bot.
If you configure your own bot, you may also include EZ-Script within the bot response. EZ-Builder will execute EZ-Script that is located within the [ and ]
characters. For example, this response below includes EZ-Script that will be executed...
"Hello, I am a bot. [Servo(d2, 20)]"
