In Topic: Voice Command Recognition: State of the art?

21 January 2014 - 01:56 AM

Thanks, @wodinoneeye.

 

The one thing that bothers me even more than a few missed words is the mic button. I really dislike the concept, though it's necessary for unobscured recognition and is, anyway, a staple in multiplayer gaming. One more hand / finger that has to be free to press one more button seems far from ideal... that's a big part of why I want to implement voice recognition, to avoid having to remember tons of keys and key combos.

 

Given that there's no other practical way (that I know of) for clear recognition, I'd rather make that sacrifice and not have to deal with menu trees which are a UI abomination... or at least do so only as a fallback measure.

Having a look now at how you encapsulate your shaders, thanks for sharing.

The tutorials out there are indeed pathetic, it has to be said. It's depressing to know how many others will suffer through that stuff just to get a working shader-based app running. There are precious few good tutorials, Durian Software's and lighthouse3d's being some of the best. For anyone else using LWJGL, this was also immensely useful. I'm learning the programmable OpenGL 2.0 ES subset of OpenGL 2.1 using VBOs, and in spite of the usefulness of this approach due to its applicability to desktop and mobile and the fact that it is "modern", it's still incredibly hard to find a single, comprehensive tutorial that foregoes all the fixed pipeline cruft. The iOS and Android tutorials don't help either, as they encapsulate too much, hiding the basic OpenGL function calls from you. I had to use a few 3.0 tutorials to help me get up to speed with 2.0; fortunately the only difference was in & out vs. varying in GLSL 1.5, AFAICT.

Haha, this just helped me out too. Thanks mhagain.

Ah, many thanks. Updated again with the multiplication order. This should allow me to proceed. I hope you have a good weekend too Posted Image

Hi larspensjo,

Thanks for clarifying, I've updated the question by removing the reference to the "window" matrix.

Also could you confirm the order then, for matrix multiplication:
[source lang="java"]modelViewMatrix = viewMatrix * modelMatrix; //??modelViewProjectionMatrix = projectionMatrix * modelViewMatrix; //??[/source]

...Assuming matrix mul() ordering is thisMatrix * otherMatrix?
