So, I kept seeing Voice Attack all over the place. Had a browse of Youtube and decided to download the trial. Used that for a few days just using the Windows built in text-to-speech "David" and decided I wanted more than 20 commands, since I couldn't have multiple voice commands for a single action- they all counted as separate commands, adding to the 20 command limit.
So, I bought VA on Steam (for the convenience and auto-updates, slightly more expensive then at their website) and downloaded the free voice pack Anubis. He's not very complicated but I enjoy his voice (very calm and soothing, honestly, almost wish he was an actual person in my life lol
Ahem. Anyhoo. I really liked the sound of the HCS voice pack "Phoenix", he really gives me a feel of TARS from Interstellar, a movie I am sorta obsessed over because I am a sad nerd. After seeing the voice actor for Phoenix compare that pack to TARS, I decided that damnit, I need snarky ship computer in my life.
So now I'm downloading TAR- I mean Phoenix so I can waste what precious play time I have today getting him set up.
And I feel like I'm cheating on Anubis. So I'm going to figure out how to combine them and retain Anubis for some commands while letting Phoenix handle most of it.
Too bad they're not real AI that can talk to each other.
That's all. Just sharing that I'm a weirdo, carry on, nothing to see here.
