This repository contains a snapshot of Mark Lillibridge's voice control infrastructure circa November 2016.

Its contents are currently completely uncurated; I hope later to clean up pieces and publish them in other open source repositories. The contents include:

  • New Vocola 2 extensions (interfacing to AutoHotkey, switching between windows, changing window status, generating regular expressions for symbol matching, etc.).

  • A new major Vocola mode for Emacs that provides syntax coloring.

  • Code for making Emacs and xterms work correctly with Dragon's correction code and sending non-ASCII characters code.

  • A lot of other code to enable or enhance voice control:

    • 10,000 lines of Vocola code, providing thousands of voice commands
    • over 1000 "new" vocabulary words, some with formatting properties
    • code for generating DNS and Vocola lists numbers, URLs from Firefox, emails extracted from Outlook and LDAP, directories and files from filesystem scans, email folders
    • elisp code (elisp is the language Emacs uses) including:
      • changes to ace-jump to implement fast on-screen jumps
      • line numbers modulo 100
      • leap, which allows moving to the next occurrence of a pattern intelligently
      • elastic space, which types a space only if there is not already one there
      • Vi's start-word
      • selected code templates
      • moving by fragments of camel case words (e.g., Case in CamelCaseWord)
    • AutoHotkey scripts for: relocating correct that dialogue, volume control, killing Firefox plug-in containers, asynchronous message display
    • driving Dragon's vocabulary GUI to import words and their properties
    • converting English descriptions of identifiers to identifiers (e.g., "monster memory map" -> "mmap")
    • VBA macros for Excel, Word (moving charts, moving by sane word boundaries)
    • moving by sane word boundaries by "peeking" at application text by the clipboard
    • logging of utterances, analysis therein
    • generating a corpus of words from my email and papers for writing analysis
    • keeping commands and vocabularies synchronized across multiple machines
    • converting browser bookmark list to a webpage of accelerators
