New Videos: The Whirlwind Tour

Check out our new videos — UC Whirlwind Tour part 1 and UC Whirlwind Tour part 2.

The Whirlwind Tour gives you a taste of what you can do with Utter Command in some key areas:

  • Controlling the Utter Command menu
  • Opening and closing programs
  • Clicking the mouse
  • Moving and sizing windows
  • Using Windows and program menus
  • Opening files and folders directly
  • Dictating and closely editing in any program
  • E-mailing
  • Using the Internet

There’s a printed copy of this tour, including cross references, in Getting Started. UC also includes an on-screen guide for this tour (say “UC Whirlwind” and the Whirlwind Tour commands will appear in a narrow on-screen guide window on the right side of your screen — other programs will size around).

Watch the tour, then use the on-screen guide or a printout of Getting Started to take it yourself.

New Videos: Commandline and quick Perl

We have a couple of new demo videos up.

Utter Command: Commandline by Speech shows how you can use the UC List Enter facility to speed up the commandline interface.

Utter Command: Writing a Perl Script by Speech shows how you can use UC’s combined keyboard commands to speed up writing code. Note that for this demo we don’t use any custom coding commands, just standard commands that work the same in any program.

You may recognize this Perl script from a YouTube video of a Microsoft speech demonstration. The big difference between the videos is with UC I had fewer commands to say and therefore fewer potential points of failure. There were a couple of other differences as well. I’m using the ideal speech set up: the NaturallySpeaking Pro speech engine running on XP with a Sennheiser ME3 Microphone and a buddy USB pod. I also wasn’t in front of an audience. I suspect the computer hardware is similar. My laptop is a two-year old Intel Core duo 2.16 with 2GB of memory.
