How to use voice commands from the BmsSuite

The voice player will speak out parameters (live readings) if they go past triggered thresholds. It can be used to alarm the operator of events (eg. while driving) without having to watch the PC screen.

 

Step 1 - navigate to the Tools menu from Home screen

 

Step 2 - navigate to Voice Player

 

Step 3 - Test the voice player

Test the PC voice function works by pressing the play button on the right. Check the PC volume and mute. This will work on voice enabled PCs (Windows 7 and 8).

Note: In the addendum below will cover the settings.

 

Step 4 - Start the voice player

Press start to use the speech processing. It will repeat each line if it remains beyond the threshold. Continuous voice readings can be set by setting thresholds so that it will trigger even with the normal (present) values.
