Toggle key

Hello,
I don't understand the "toggle button" command when adding a new voice command.
I always assumed that the first time the command was executed, the key was pressed and the second time it was released. The way it seems, isn't it?
Can someone explain what the command does?

greetings
Philipp

That's how it should work, yep! Which keyboard key are you trying to toggle? I'll do some testing here and see if something is broken.

Thanks for the answer.

For example, I want to toggle the "F" key. For me there are no buttons
Now I always have to create two commands: one to hold down the key and the second to release the key.

Have you already tried the "Hold Key" action? With that one, it will do a "repeating" keydown, the same as if you held the actual key down on the keyboard.

Yes, I am currently using the action "hold key", but the key is not released the second time the command is called
That's why I have a second command to release the button.

That's strange! When I use the Hold Key action with the "Hold until toggled" option, it works for me. First run of the command it holds the key, second one it releases the key.

Does yours look like the attached?

Yes, but with this action the button is released after the set time. Would like to have pressed this permanently until I just say the voice command again.

What program are you wanting it to hold the F key in? If you run that macro on Notepad, do you see the F key repeating until you say the command a second time?

For example in GTA. No in Notepad the key is pressed only once. If I execute this command again, the key is pressed a second time, etc.

In game, however, the key is pressed continuously the first time you run it. Nothing happens except the second time.

Thanks! Yours is in German so maybe something is getting lost in translation

Are you using the "Taste halten" action? Or "Taste drucken und wieder loslassen?"

When I use "Taste halten", the key is pressed continuously, but it does not release the key. Therefore "Taste umschalten" after all?
https://www.voicebot.net/Help/#settings-profiles-edit-macroedit-actions - Explanation "Toggle Key" (German: "Taste umschalten" or "Umschalttaste" for German website translation)

I also find it confusing that the German translation between the website and the actual program are so different.
Apr 18, 2020  • #15
Keith Lammers (BFS)'s profile on WallpaperFusion.com
The translation in the app has been done by an actual translator but the website is machine translated for now.

The "Taste halten" action should continuously press the key (this is the same as holding a key on the keyboard), but if you say the command a second time, it should release it. It does in my tests here. Is it not releasing when you say the command a second time?

No with the action "Taste halten" the key is not released the second time. For that there is the action "Taste loslassen" ("Release Key")? What does the action "Taste umschalten" ("Toggle Key")?
Apr 21, 2020  • #17
Keith Lammers (BFS)'s profile on WallpaperFusion.com
That's really strange! For "Taste halten" (Hold Key) when I test it, it's released the second time.

"Taste umschalten" (Toggle Key) is really only useful for modifier keys (Ctrl, Shift, Alt). It will send a "KeyDown" the first time, and a "KeyUp" the second time.

Yes in the notepad it works as desired only in the game (GTA) it causes problems With this action it is so that the key is pressed one after the other (100ms) and is not constantly pressed. You would only have to instead of 100ms Set 0ms (at least 10ms is allowed). Can you change that?

I noticed another bug (besides the ones here): After irregular intervals, Voicebot no longer understands what is said, but only any letters? Also the detection in general gets worse ... If this occurs only restarting Voicebot helps that it starts again ... Why can't that be due to Windows, if a restart of Voicebot helps or? My Voicebot runs continuously with Windows (and listens). Doesn't he take it somehow?

Ok, glad to hear that's working!

I'm not sure what might be up with the speech recognition. VoiceBot doesn't do any sort of adjustments or anything like that, it just passes what it hears over to the Windows Speech Engine and parses the response that it gets

Yeah, that's definitely strange! When it's not working correctly, do the commands still show up in the log in the main window, and they're just incorrect? Or is it not listening at all any more?

Ok, that's good to know! The MS Speech Engine gets restarted when you load another profile, so it must be that the speech engine is getting messed up at some point and restarting it fixes it. We'll likely add an Advanced Setting to the next version that you can set to have it auto-restart the speech engine on an interval.

We'll let you know when that's available to try out

Thanks!

We've just posted a new VoiceBot Beta version, and it now has an option in the Settings > Advanced Settings for restarting the speech engine:
General: Speech Engine Restart Interval (Minutes)


Could you try setting that and let me know if it helps with the issue where the speech recognition is inconsistent over time?

Unfortunately does not work Under "Speech Engine Restart Interval" I entered a 10. The entry is highlighted in red, is it therefore not?

Unfortunately, the voice output with the following code no longer works for the macros:
BFS.Speech.TextToSpeech ("Text");

Thanks for the heads up on the scripting issue, I was able to reproduce it here and have added it to our list to fix up.

Regarding the speech restart setting, it's expected that it shows as red. Any advanced settings that are "enabled" show up in red. If you enable L1 debug logging on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab, and send me the log after about 15 minutes, I can verify in the log that it's actually restarting the speech engine.

Thanks!

No worries! It looks like only the troubleshooting info was captured. Here are the steps for debug logging:

Could you send me a debug log?
  • On the VoiceBot Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L1: Log Minimal" and click Apply
  • Let VoiceBot run for about 15 minutes
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Reply with the file attached
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

Yes that is not possible, it still comes after a certain time only "U", "UA" etc. If I change the profile it still works. Will something else be done when changing the profile?

I noticed that the problem mostly occurs when there are loud noises for a short time.

No, when the loud noises occur I try not to issue commands. After the noises are over and I speak, Voicebot no longer understands the commands but random sequences of letters. Unfortunately, that doesn't always happen.
To work around this problem a little, it helps to lower the level of the microphone, but it also makes Voicebot understand me worse

No, I don't have that attitude.
I now noticed that changing the profile no longer helps to improve the recognition again. It only helps to restart Voicebot. What happens when you restart? Doesn't that just restart the speech engine?

Before I used Voicebot, I used the "glovepie" and "freepie" programs to execute voice commands. I didn't have the problems with that. Don't they use the same engine?
Jul 8, 2020  • #49
Keith Lammers (BFS)'s profile on WallpaperFusion.com
I haven't used those apps before, but on quick look, it appears they use the MS speech recognizer as well. I'll re-open this ticket with our developers so that they can have another look at it.

Thanks!

Is there anything new about this problem? The Voicebot tray icon is displayed at the bottom of the task bar when Voicebot is running. This icon also lights up when Voicebot hears something. I just noticed that when this problem occurs this icon is lit continuously.
I also ran Windows Speech for a while without Voicebot, where I had no problems dictating so that only letters were recognized.

Saturday, September 12th from 11:45 a.m.

With every simple mouse click he writes an "A" in the log and doesn't understand anything.

Edit:
It seems to me as if Voicebot has problems with an application running in full screen.
I noticed the following scenario with MSFS2020: As I said, I play the game in full screen mode. When after a while Voicebot no longer understood commands, I switched to window mode ingame to see what was being heard. Voicebot has recognized my spoken commands as letters again! So when I still have the game in window mode, I now speak another command and voicebot understands me again! So I switched back to full screen and it went on again for some time. When the problem reappeared, switched back to window mode and back.

So does the full screen cause any problems?

Yes, I have, but there are problems even without it.
What happens in the background when I restart Voicebot? Then it will work again for a while. Couldn't all the processes in Voicebot be restarted after a while, like when Voicebot is restarted?

Until the problem is solved, my idea is the following: Let the program close automatically for 30 minutes and start Voicebot every 30 minutes with the Windows task scheduler. Perhaps via a batch file that closes the process and starts it again. Is that possible?
Sep 16, 2020  • #59
Keith Lammers (BFS)'s profile on WallpaperFusion.com
As a workaround you could probably have a scheduled task that kills the VoiceBot process and re-launches it.

I wonder, the next time it stops recognizing your commands, could you check the Windows task manager and see if the voicebot.exe process is using a lot of CPU or memory?

In addition, I wanted to have Windows Voicebot start automatically via the task scheduler, but it always comes up "the requested action requires elevated rights" even if the task is executed as a system. Even when I run Voicebot state in a batch file and execute this in the task scheduler , it doesn't work either. Voicebot only starts when the batch is executed manually. But that doesn't help me, this has to be done automatically via the task planning. Why is that not possible via task planning?

I'm not sure why it won't run directly from the scheduled task, but I've created a PowerShell script that will restart VoiceBot every 15 minutes.

You can run it from a Scheduled Task that runs as your user, like this:

Program: powershell.exe
Arguments: -NoExit -ExecutionPolicy Bypass .\RestartVoiceBot.ps1
Start in: Whatever folder you have the PowerShell script stored in

Also make sure that "Run as administrator" isn't enabled in your VoiceBot.exe Properties > Compatibility tab. Task Scheduler won't run anything with that flag enabled I believe.

is there something new? I have now tried the speech recognition without Voicebot. In addition to the speech recognition, I opened a text editor to see how it behaves when there are background noises. When the noises come, the speech recognition bar says "Like please" and no letters are written. These letters only appear when I turn on the music loudly. After the noises have subsided, however, my words are recognized again without restarting!
In the Microsoft forum it is also written that background noise is filtered out by the speech recognition. Why not Voicebot?
Does Voicebot change the mode of speech recognition as in "Enter" or "Press a key"? If so, can't you just leave Voicebot in dictation mode?

I have had the program since last year and every version to date has this problem. That's why I think that the older ones also have this problem ...

Can this be due to the German implementation?

The problem only occurs after making your own loud noises.
The problem is most likely to occur when the volume is at 100%.

It seems to me that Voicebot is also very sensitive when the problem occurs, that is, the icon often looks blue even though there is no or only a very soft sound (the level in Windows does not show up either).

Should I send one or more logs again when this problem occurs?

Thanks! There is something interesting in the log, which goes along with what you mentioned about the icon being permanently blue. VoiceBot seems to be picking up some kind of audio, and it's timing out on that noise, so we think what's happening is that sometimes it's just timing out in the middle of your actual speech, because it's been "hearing" noise for too long.

What kind of microphone are you using? Is it a headset, or a webcam, or built-in microphone?

When this happens again, could you also attach a screenshot of the main VoiceBot window so that I can see the audio levels in the graph at the bottom of the main window?

Thanks!

Yes, I use a webcam, the sound is extremely quiet at this point and the level of the microphone is only between 50 and 60%. In Voicebot no level is displayed at such a low volume but he still hears something? I have now made a screenshot where there was an ambient noise. Still the same problem, no level visible in Voicebot but the icon is blue! In addition, I created a log again (time see screenshot)

I am not familiar with it, is there a possibility that the speech recognition or Voicebot only reacts to certain frequencies?

Mouse clicks are also heard, although there is no level change in Voicebot or Windows, but the icon turns blue.

Unfortunately I don't have a headset. Sorry
The question is why Voicebot hears something even though no level is displayed. As if Voicebot automatically sets the level to 100% again, but doesn't see anything of it anywhere.

With Steam Voicechat, the level is also increased, only it is visible there
Feb 2, 2021  • #84
Keith Lammers (BFS)'s profile on WallpaperFusion.com
Ok, interesting! VoiceBot doesn't have any code that would be adjusting the levels, but it looks like Steam chat does. Could you try disabling it in Steam? The steps are in the "Method 2" section here: https://appuals.com/how-to-stop-microphone-from-auto-adjusting-windows-10/

I didn't know that Steam rules this if I don't have voice chat. In addition, shouldn't the level in Windows always be at 100%? I only see after an active voice chat that the level has changed to 100%.

But there is also the situation shown above, when there is little background noise, in which Voicebot (and Windows) does not show a level, but Voicebot is still listening !?
Actually, Voicebot should only react when the level is displayed (which is also the case when you speak louder!) And not when the level is not displayed.

Is there anything new in this regard? The same problem occurred with a headset.

Not yet, sorry. Interesting that it happened with a headset as well though. Was the volume level getting changed with the headset too?

What happens if you have no other programs running in the background and only have VoiceBot running? Does it still end up having the blue icon permanently?

No, under Windows the level is permanently at 64%. This was always the case with the webcam. The level was only visibly adjusted in Windows when I started a voice chat in Steam, but I turned this off according to the instructions you linked.

Even so, the sensitivity of the microphone in Voicebot increases after a while if there is loud and long background noise. Voicebot even hears more than the maximum setting of 100% that can be set in Windows ?! As if Voicebot not only listens to the microphone, but also to something else.
Yes, the problem occurs even when no programs are running.

Have you tried this: level below 70%, loud and long into the microphone (so that the level fully deflects) and then quiet noises (so that the level does not deflect). Voicebot also hears the quiet noises from me. The best way to test this is to play a quiet video.

edit: Is it not possible to check whether the level is deflected and only then execute Voicebot commands (i.e. everything that is executed in the program)? You could create a new variable under Settings where you can set the value of the level to be checked, whereby 0 is the default value and Voicebot works as it does now.
For example:
if (level >= 5 (variable)) {
# Voicebot program block
}

Um den Fehler wieder zu beheben, habe ich einen weiteren Screenshot gemacht. Hier können Sie sehen, dass der Pegel in Windows und Voicebot nicht abgelenkt ist, aber Voicebot immer noch zuhört! Hat Voicebot eine zweite Einstellung für das Level?

It doesn't have any custom settings for microphone level, no. This is just really strange. Let me check in with our developers again with this new info and see if they have any other thoughts.

As already described above, my idea was to incorporate a test to determine whether the level was deflecting.

Sorry, I'm not quite sure what you mean by "audio level deflecting." Our developers are planning to add some more logging to see what's up. It's starting to look more like a bug in the MS Speech Engine, as I got some clarification on the process:

  • VoiceBot tells the speech engine to listen
  • When the speech engine hears something it thinks is speech, it tells VoiceBot that it's hearing words
  • VoiceBot then asks it for what it heard and tries to match it up with a macro command

So for some reason, the MS Speech Engine is just always thinking it's hearing words being spoken. We are going to add as much logging for the speech engine that we can so that we can get a new log from you and hopefully see if there's some way we can fix or work around this issue

Thank you very much. I mean Voicebot just need to check if the level is shown below or not. If a level is only visible in Voicebot then the code that you are listening to must be run first.
