TUTORIAL FOR VAICOM AND QUESTIONS FOR NEW USERS?

Hi, sorry for bothering, but I watched many videos in youtube regarding Vaicom, and purchased the plugin for VoiceAttack, however I have been unable to make it work. I am sure it is my lack of knowledge but I feel frustrated and looking for help. I just need to do simple things:
1.- communicate with the Tanker

2.- assign a frequency to a radio (when I use the "tune" instruction It always end in the M channell)

 

Funny though the tune instruction works without PTT, and when I try it I check the instructions log window in VoiceAttack and it says "command '******' is currently disabled for this session and was not executed.

Another curious issue is that all spoken command in the Push to Talk category in Voice Attack, have a  (voice disabled) hint next to "Transmit TX* press/release.

 

Sorry to bother with this but don't have any other place where to ask for help.

 

Cheers,

 

Dave

Hi Dave!
Congratulations as a new VAICOM user. We'll sort this out.

1.
To communicate with the tanker say "Texaco, approaching for refuel". Change Texaco to correct tanker, and the correct frequency/preset must of course be used. "Select Texaco" first, (to tune), can be used if VAICOM is correctly configured.

2.
Are you talking about tuning the frequency?
Use the appropriate TX button for tuning the correct radio.
"Select AM/FM one two three decimal four", for frequency.
"Select channel one", for preset.
Doesn't work in all modules.

Yes, you don't want to say "TX1 press/release" instead of pushing the button, so the voice command is disabled for that. Correct as is. Make also sure that you haven't setup a VoiceAttack PTT that conflict with/equals any physical TX button in the VAICOM profile.
VAICOM only uses VA as a gateway to Microsoft Speech Recognition for the speech-to-text. The text is sent back to the VAICOM plugin for the handling of commands sent to DCS in the background. No keypresses.
I also have some serious issues with the latest VAICOM version. I also constantly get the "Disabled command". That's a VoiceAttack message, that tells you that the plugin has disabled them for some reason. So I have rolled back to 2.5.24 version, and those issues are gone. I only have some intermittent problems with the ATC page with the keyboard now.

Hope this helps!
Cheers!

Dave,

 

It sounds like the configuration isn't right and the other issues are following on from that. Just checking that you have set up Voiceattack and Vaicom following the instructions in the Vaicom manual, and that you have correctly pointed Vaicom to your DCS install (standalone / steam and OB / stable) in the Vaicom config.

 

Please could you post a screenshot of the (voice disabled) message.

 

Are you on Discord? If so, I am happy to jump on a voice call at the weekend to work through this.
