I've released the next version of GVoice, 0.0.2. It's available from
ftp://anakin.cse.ogi.edu/pub/omega/gvoice/gvoice-0.0.2.tar.gz. I've put
up a basic home page at http://www.cse.ogi.edu/~omega/gnome/gvoice/.
This package requires IBM's ViaVoice runtime and SDK components, available
from http://www.software.ibm.com/speech/, as well as a recent copy of
libglade, available from CVS and in snapshot RPM form (a little old
though) from ftp://anakin.cse.ogi.edu/pub/gnome/cvssnap/libglade/.
This second release of gvoice doesn't add a whole lot in the way of new
features, being primarily a cleanup release. Changes are as follows:
- Special exclusive vocabulary support, used for dialog boxes. Existing
list of active vocabularies is disabled for the duration of the exclusive
vocab, then re-enabled once you remove it.
- Vocabularies are now gtk-compliant objects (patterned after libglade
code), allowing future expansion with derived vocabulary types to support
more complex grammars and such.
- spec.in file known to work (I just built it on an rh60 box)
- Nifty demo program thing.
- Code split into separate files for the core engine and vocabulary
routines. Mostly a sanity thing, since they didn't change because of the
- Library code moved from lib/ to gvoice/ to facilitate the code split
relative to installed header files.
- All variables, types, and functions changed to match the style
guidelines laid out in the GNOME docs.
- Debugging statements now DEBUG() statements, with ./configure switch.
- Added some extra SMAPI callbacks that were making noise by not existing.
- Added a lot of documentation in gtk-doc format.
- Complete documentation of existing library calls, and set up gtk-doc to
actually create docs from the comments.
- Provide several example programs that demonstrate each major chunk of
- Consider making a lot of the SMAPI calls synchronous to avoid some of
the syncronization issues.
- Create a set of autoconnect functions that walks the widget tree to
connect each widget in a sane manner. Include widget-specific support,
i.e. "set value to 0.4" for sliders, "button" and "not button" for
- Add an autoconf macro file, and gvoice-config.
- Lots more, give me ideas ;-)
