Re: New feature for FLDIGI or N1MM

Cable Television
 

Thanks for getting back to me.

I beleive text to speach would be a great enhancement and open doors for physically challenged hams.

Younger hams may not realize yet what impairments await them as they age.

Being able to control the rig and use CW, RTTY and digital modes via speech would help many hams remain active in the hobby as they age and open the door to other physically challenged individuals. 

I would hope that someone would take on this challenge allowing it to become the next great enhancement. 

Thank you again for your response!

Where i worked we used Nuance Speech Objects; they are the basis for the SIRI recognition engine at Apple. 
You'd have to build a recognition dictionary of commonly used ham radio words, the phonetic alphabet, perhaps even a few call signs you'd expect to hear.

Another alternative to Nuance's product is AT&T's Watson (yes, it has the same name as the IBM supercomputers).  I do not know if they would license it.

I have no idea what the per seat licensing charges would be.

Fldigi 4.1.17 stops sometimes automatically on Mac OS Catalina

Maurice PC9T
 

I'am using Fldigi 4.1.17 on my MacBook Pro with Catalina an RumlogNG and sometimes Fldigi stops automatically even when TX is not in transmit mode.

Sometimes 3 to 4 times or more in a hour.

Last December I had a clean setup with Catalina after lots of problems on BigSur.

But now this strange effect happens often, does anyone recognize this problem and has solved the problem.
I think it's no RFI because it happens also when Fldigi is in receive.

It happens also when using Fldigi without RumlogNG, I did severals clean installs but the problem remains.

I hope for a solution because it's not handy when you're contesting and the program stops.

Hope not to have go back to a windows computer

New feature for FLDIGI or N1MM

Has anyone considered adding a new feature consisting of speech to text function to FLDIGI or N1MM?

I think that would be way cool!

Re: log data question

Cliff
 

Jim,

The auto lookup is done from your log. If the call is not in the Log it will not auto fill the logging fields. The lookup for QRZ needs a paid subscription to work for remote lookup. If you have one then clicking on the “world” icon beside the call in the log field should do the look up for you. HamQTH is free, but not as current as QRZ and Callook is also free, but USA only.

Enter the call into the logging area by clicking on the call in the Rx Panel.
