Perlbox Voice is an voice enabled application to bring your desktop under your command. With a single word, you can start your web browser, your favorite editor or whatever you want. Perlbox Voice now has desktop plugins, which will allow you to control desktop functions. You can switch virtual desktops, invoke the desktop menu, switch wallpaper or lock the screen. This is command, and it's right on the tip of your tongue! Start with the tutorial, which has a lot of screenshots.
If you are familiar with Gnome, Afterstep, FVWM or any other desktop and want to write (or help write) that plugin, please let me know. Do any of those offer facilities like KDE's dcop server? I know that Gnome uses Corba, but that is where my knowledge on Gnome IPC ends. I would like to see plugins for all of the useful desktops. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
What you need first:
1.)Perl-Tk, the graphical toolkit for perl. This should come with your distribution, if not visit CPAN
The rpm will install without Tk, but will not run until you have installed perk-Tk.
2.)Sphinx2, the speech to text engine for Perlbox Voice. The rpm should be fine for Madrake/SuSe/Fedora/Redhat type systems.
