VAICOM PRO plugin for VoiceAttack

Recommended Posts

The keyboard works just fine for the PTT and I get DCS fired up, hop in the Harrier and I get dreaded red box next to the message, command recognized but rejected 23/56 or other percentages. So I do some more voice training, actually a lot of voice training and I still have the same results.

 

 

Is it all commands you struggle with, or just particular keywords? I had the latter problem and had to add particular words to the Windows dictionary and voice train those. Definitely worth persevering with.

Same. Or just add/use different words for commands. For example, VA would never recognize "armor" for me, so I say "tanks" or "mud".

Hey Hollywood,

 

Are the Utility/Set Inactive & Utility/Set Active commands implemented in AIRIO? I can't see a reference to it in the manual. At the minute it appears the only way to access this setting is to disable AIRIO itself, which is not ideal.

 

Cheers.

Look in the Vaicom manual. The list of commands include all those for the RIO. PM me if you need further help and I will see what I can do

 

I see it now. It was late here when I posted and it was all looking like nonsense to me.

Thanks.:thumbup:

Hi,

 

I think I have an issue with Vaicom or VA and can't find what's wrong... No commands are sent to DCS.

Vaicom receive informations from DCS, modules and theater are properly recognized in Vaicom's PTT tab, all DCS comms are reported to VA window, but no commands are issued from vaicom to DCS.

VA works properly when it comes to send keystrokes (ex. I mapped "Eject, eject eject" to 3x CTRL+E, and it works... *WOOOSH*), so the speech recon isn't an issue.

 

Short example... Instant action : F-14 Takeoff (aligned and cleared to T/O at mission start), I'm trying to abort T/O...

 

 

This is the log in VA window (Easy comms ON in DCS):

18:36:48.452 Joystick : 'Transmit TX1 press'
18:36:48.459 Listening resumed
18:36:57.490 Recognized : 'abort takeoff' (Confidence 94)
18:36:57.494 Captured sentence: abort takeoff
18:36:57.912 Joystick : 'Transmit TX1 release'
18:36:57.923 Listening suspended
18:36:57.942 Listening resumed

 

And this is what I get in ProcessMonitor (sysinternals tools) :

If you check the timecodes, it seems no packets are sent after the command has been recognized.

 

I'm running DCS steam edition in my user (non-admin) session, VA (also steam edition) is running under admin session, elevated.

All lua's are properly installed (auto install, then manually checked)

VA and DCS are allowed in the firewall (BitDefender 2020).

Win 10 build 1909, locale is fr-FR, but the en-US speech recon pack is installed.

 

VA and vaicom config :

They are not unfortunately. Also hoping @Hollywood_315 adds them some time in the future. along with a couple others that are still missing.

Hi Mr Hollywood, might you be able to offer advice on this problem I have.

When I use Vaicom Pro it keeps 'recognising' words that are not in the Vaicom editor list. If I go into keyword training from the editor screen, then open the dictionary (e.g. Edit or add a word option) I see hundreds of words/phrases that are not Vaicom kwywords. However the Vaicom manual says the dictionary when entering Training mode should be loaded with only the list of Vaicom keywords. Do I have to do something special to 'switch' Windows speech recognition to use specifically the Vaicom Pro dictionary? Or have I totally misunderstood? Probably the latter, but any advice appreciated.

Is there a way to issue commands without hearing your own commands through the dcs interface? For example, I give a command or inquiry and only receive the response.

 

Thanks!

As far I know it is impossible enable/disable AIRIO with out reset Vaicom/DSC due to how jester wheel menu is implemented in DCS. For the seme reason you can not have both. So I would do not expect there will be this functionality at all!

I'm not asking for a command to disable AIRIO itself.

 

I'm looking for a feature in the wheel menu called "Set Inactive/Active" to be implemented inside AIRIO.

 

This command doesn't just stop Jester from talking, but also stops him interacting with the jet systems in any way.

 

Trying to practice RIO cold start in single player by yourself is a massive hassle, because parts of the pilot start up checklist trigger Jester to do things in the rear seat, even when he hasn't been explicitly instructed to "Startup". Disabling AIRIO in between flights to get access just to this setting is also a hassle.

Anyone else having problems with the menu commands (Take 1, 2, 3 etc.) not working since the new upadte?

 

I rolled back to the earlier version and it worked again. Upgraded, broken again..

 

The command seems to be recognised by VA, but doesn't get actioned

Matched imported F10 menu command.

Captured sentence: action message off"

 

but the menu keeps popping up, anyone what might cause this ?

FIXED: worked after system restart.

 

 

 

Some others, then, don't, like radio tune, take and I can't train "Two" for reasons beyond me.

That's strange, I have problem with 'two' as well (I can't imagine easier English word but for some reason I say it wrong) most of time I use 'gopher' instead.

Having a heck of a time getting my commands understood in VA. I'm sure it's something I'm doing incorrectly. For Example, I'll try and contact a JTAC, but I get no response. Other times in the VA log window, I'll get "Awaiting further input" and nothing after that.

 

For example ...I'm using Easy Comm off and trying to contact the JTAC "Whiplash" on 250.6 on Radio 1 - FM VHF with no success. Occasionally, I did see ATC 1 tuned to WHIPLASH, but when I checked in with "Enfield 1, checking in" no response. Ideally, I would like to just speak in one sentence "Whiplash, Enfield 1 Check in" ... Am I setting up my VA incorrectly for this ?

 

Also, I'm really interested in the VSPX feature, as I speak fast naturally ... but at this point I'm just trying to narrow down my first issue. What's the feedback on VSPX ?

 

I've gone through the keywords and mostly with no problems.

 

Can anyone help with that limited information? I'm trying to find my debug file ( Yes I check marked it in the UI Config page but cant find the file.

 

Thanks ! :(

Question about new MP options: The manual describes "Mic to Human Players" DISABLED as "Select this if you don’t want your talks to AI units to be heard by fellow players on the same frequency."

 

Can this work even when the same PTT key is being used for VAICOM TX and SRS radio? (If not, what is the recommended PTT configuration?) If so, does VAICOM block transmission over the SRS radio while it tries to detect a command? If so, does that introduce a delay when I'm talking to a fellow player? Some examples of use with different setups would be helpful.

 

BTW, have you thought about integration with Discord or Teamspeak PTT as well?

 

Thanks so much for this incredible product Hollywood!

 

I would also like to know how this is supposed to work. I'm not able to talk to other players unless I have the "Mic to human players" enabled. If disabled, "TR" just flashes in the SRS window and no one can hear me. Seems to me that the channels used for communication among players are recognized as "AI channels"

Hi all

 

Catching up in random order:

 

@Shack Make sure to use the correct phrasing to contact JTAC e.g. 'Playtime 20 Minutes', see ref tables.

For VSPX leave out the sender reference in your call ie do not say the 'Enfield' part.

@bumblebomb For recognition Check your mic driver settings, input levels and consider playing with your Command Weight value in VA options.

@Silversmith Training Mode loads only VAICOM PRO keywords but make sure in VA and MS Windows control panel the correct recognition engine is selected.

@Ares63 Noted, thanks.

@PingPongChampeen Select all options on the Reset tab and press reset.

@stgchamby You may see this message if you're too quick with releasing your PTT key: try holding a fraction longer.

@balletje @RickInAZ Thanks we'll have a look to see if there's a reproducible snag.

@Clorydric For STEAM try delete export.lua from Saved Games then force lua using Custom Path, not applying the ob flag.

@IchDien The Jester suspend feature is being looked into for next AIRIO update.

@Rennes These commands cannot be reached with traditional methods ie keystrokes, they'll need VAICOM PRO to use them.

@slicker55 You do not need AIRIO for radio tuning: use Config/Export to find the new .vap profile that contains the commands.

@andhog @sthompson This a new feature and user feedback is appreciated. 'Mic to human players' needs to be on in order for your mic to be sent to other players via SRS, it will get muted otherwise and your speech goes to AI (you get the TR flash in SRS). Use the 'Display Info' checkbox to see which players are identified on your frequency.

 

Cheers

There is no spoon.

The new multiplayer feature is confusing. Seems like you have to open config on the fly, check "Mic to human players" if you wanna talk on SRS, then uncheck it to talk to AI. Rinse and repeat. I thought it was supposed to be automatic? Very confusing. I emailed Viacom tech support but haven't gotten any response. Guess they are confused too. Also, what should be done with "Allow VIACOM TX Inhibit" in SRS Settings? On or Off? Thanks.

@Chicki No switching, it's explained in the manual.

Enable both Mic to Human Players and Mic to AI Units if you want to address both on mixed channels.

In SRS you need to enable the feature i.e. ON.

 

Suggest to check the different options to get a feel for it.

Again, this is a new feature and user feedback is appreciated.

 

Thanks
