Hello,
Thanks for implementing this feature!
But it doesn't work. I always get this message even though I am holding down the push-to-talk key (Middle Mouse Click)

Strange! Holding middle-click seems to work for me. If you try a different mouse button, or a keyboard key, does it work?

Yeah, no other mouse buttons nor keyboard keys work.
Uninstalling/installing didn't help

Ok, that's really strange! I'm going to check into a few things and will get back to you with some more troubleshooting steps.

Could you do another test for us?
  • Disable the push-to-talk hotkey for now
  • Save the attached .voicebot file
  • On the Settings > Profiles tab, click Import and choose that file
  • Switch to the "TestKeys" profile
  • Open Notepad
  • Say the "test" command, it should type out "Tt"
  • Let me know the results of the test

Thanks!

Strange! Could you try this one then? You'll have to extract the ZIP first, then try importing the file.

OK, this one did import.
I switched to it, said the command, and it typed out Tt.
Then, I enabled PPT key in config, and after holding down the key and saying the command, it still says "Action Ignored: Push to Talk hotkey not held"

Could you send me a screenshot of the main VoiceBot window after trying it with the PTT key held?

Thanks! That's definitely weird. We're not sure what could be causing that, and the current amount of logging in VoiceBot isn't enough to give us any clues, unfortunately. We'll add some additional debug logging to the next beta, and then we'll get you to send over a debug log. I'll keep you posted as soon as that's ready.

Thanks!

Hello there!

I am having the same issue. I followed all the same steps, but had a little bit different outcome...

If I hold the PTT (set as middle click, but cycled it through many different keys with no success)and use the test word and release the button, I get the action ignored msg. If I hold the PTT and wait without speaking, even for three seconds, I get the same error msg. However, if I hold the PTT down and keep repeating the command it starts working after a few repeats. It is not the same number of repeats every time, but it does work every time if I keep repeating the command. It is not reliable enough to use a pattern either so still unusable for me. I hope this helps a bit. I am really excited to start experimenting with this in action!:)

Upon playing more, it seems to work as long as I do not release the PTT key until after the action is fully executed. It is not a fluid motion, more slow and deliberate, but it will still be fantastic for all out of action stuff until it is tweaked, or my expectations come in line with reality.

Good find! We'll see if we can get that fixed up for the next version :)

Thanks!

I'm curious, have the Push to Talk issues been resolved?
I just purchased today mainly for this feature but I'm having some trouble myself.
But I have a complicated setup, so it could be something I've missed in settings.

I wanted to use a button on my Joystick (an old X-45) for the push to talk.

So I'm using JoyToKey to map a button to a keystroke, then setting the push to talk feature to the same keystroke.

I've tried different combinations of keystrokes. In all cases, I get the "action ignored, push to talk hotkey not held" message.

I'm pretty sure the JoyToKey mapping is working because I've tested it using notepad.

e.g. when JoyToKey button is mapped to the "t" key (with repeat 30 times per second) and I bring up notepad and hold down the joystick button, it repeatedly puts tttttttttt down until I let up. But, with the VoiceBot push to talk hotkey set to "T", I get the "action ignored, push to talk hotkey not held (T)" message.

Direct support for joystick buttons would probably be preferable. But I'll take any solution if someone can point out if I have a setting wrong.

Thanks,
Greg

@Greg: If JoyToKey is sending the T repeating, that might be the issue. Is there a way to have JoyToKey send it as a held key (KeyDown) instead?

Thanks Keith!
that did it. Unfortunately JoyToKey doesn't appear to support key "hold", just repeat at a max of 30 times a second. But I had been looking at Pinnacle Game Profiler to get better support for the X45 mode functions and it turns out Pinnacle works quite nicely when matched with VoiceBot. got the trial version last night. I'll probably purchase a key today.

We've just released a new VoiceBot beta, and the PTT feature should now work much better. If you run into any trouble after updating, please let us know!

Thanks!

Having exact same issue, everything installed but PTT is not working, "Action Ignored: Push to Talk hotkey not held" everytime in the log. The program is constantly logging every sound i make (which I very much don't want it to do) even when I'm not touching the PTT key, but it has no effect when I'm trying to use it in program. (ARMA 3 using the downoaed ARMA 3 Apex profile).

Alt+F12 attached to a single press mouse button

Ah, I wonder if the mouse button is the issue there. If you hold Alt+F12 on the keyboard does it work?
