Does anyone know how to make AutoCAD react to voice commands? Seems to me it would be a huge productivity feature.

Sounds like it'd be a huge annoyance to the person sitting next to you. :smileyhappy: It would probably work great for notes, but for anything else....??? The biggest question I have is, how would you draw, let's say, a line?? I'm guessing, to draw a line from 0,0,0 to 100,100,0 it would be something like this. LINE ENTER ZERO COMMA ZERO COMMA ZERO ENTER ONE HUNDRED COMMA ONE HUNDRED COMMA ZERO ENTER In other words... How would you tell AutoCAD where to START the line?? You'd have to say the coordinates!! Am I right?? -- Matt W The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.

Back in the day, a long, long, way too long, time ago there was a product, I believe from Dragon Systems (but my memory aint what it used to be), that had a card for voice recognition that would work. It could be used to start commands and could recognize maybe 30 commands. I knew a couple of people that tried it and found it more annoying than helpful. Now that computers are faster and more powerful, there may be newer products that would work better.

Well, I'm alone with my computer. I just envisioned giving the initial command by voice, like Line, Copy, Rotate etc. The follow-up would still be by input device.

DRAGON "NaturallySpeaking" can be "taught AutoCAD commands fairly easily, but the response time on even the best setup is agonizingly slow. A friend of mine broke her neck in an automobile accident several years ago, and she's been using a modified version of Dragon for a couple of years. With very heavy customization, geared specifically for what she produces, she has become extremely productive. But then she has more patience than I.

[Yikes] Again! Why not have it linked to our brains...? If you want to be productive, customize, customize, and then customize. Forget about voice commands, thats for Star Trekies...

Rudy, you supprised me. Isn't voice recognition just another customization technique? Dave Alexander Keen Engineering Co. Ltd.

There was a joke about this a long time ago when voice recognition software was first out. The biggest reason not get voice recognition software for AutoCAD? All it would take is someone running down the center of the office yelling, "ERASE - ALL - QSAVE - QSAVE" "Len Nobel" wrote in message news:40e57eb8$1_2@newsprd01... > Does anyone know how to make AutoCAD react to voice commands? > Seems to me it would be a huge productivity feature. > >

He's afraid someone like me would sneak up behind him and holler Erase All Quicksave Quit.
