how to voice activate your mac similar to siri?
Okay so this has been on my mind for awhile now but I never really looked into it because I thought I had watched one too many sifi movies. but then I got an iphone.. and then a mac.. and it all changed. I never understood how well Siri worked on the iPhone.. so it got me thinking.. if its possible to get a program Siri to work that well on a hand held device, it should be no match for a laptop that has twice the computing power right?? Well so far, i've been wrong. However I havent given up and i'm still searching for a possible answer so I have turned to the good people on Instructables to help me out. Before you shut out the idea of telling your computer to check your emails and open up this application and that application, I must say that IT HAS BEEN DONE! but from what i can tell, it has only been done on a Windows 7 and Windows Vista. I'll include a few links so you can see where im trying to go with this. I know some people have wired this up to their house and home appliances where they say something like turn lights on and bam they turn on.. although this is super cool im not looking to do this.. all i want is a program that is like a virtual assistant. and maybe something that i can tweak a little bit as in adding my own voice commands,
Me: "hey who's on my network??" Computer: "you have 4 people logged on to your network, would you like me to display them?"
Me: "do i have any new emails?" Computer: "you have 321 unread messages, would you like me to read you the subject lines?"
hopefully there is something out there that one of you have either seen, own, or heard of and can provide some sort of information to shed some light on my little endeavor. I own a Macbook Pro so I do realize that replies to my question may be somewhat limited to Apple owners.
