DESCRIPTION

     VoiceShell is a voice recognition utility. It allows 
     you to start commands just by saying the command into a
     microphone.

     VoiceShell is a replacement for VCLI by Richard Horne. 
     It also uses the voice.library by Richard Horne. 
     VoiceShell, however, doesn't have a graphic display of 
     the spoken word and thus is faster than VCLI.

     With VoiceShell you have full control over the supported
     samplers, including the GVP DSS 8. You can now choose between
     left/right input channels, microphone or line level, input 
     gain etc...

     VoiceShell also has an ARexx port to allow almost full 
     control over VoiceShell from external programs. You can
     even send ARexx commands through VoiceShell itself, allowing 
     you to control VoiceShell with voice commands!


NEW FEATURES

     This version has some bug fixes over the last release 
     (version 1.11). It also allows longer filenames, can wedge 
     keystrokes as if they were actually typed, can run special 
     commands on errors, and has a few other small imporvements. 
     VoiceShell is now a comodity.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

     The program requires Kickstart 2.04 or higher. A sampler, 
     i.e. audio digitizer hardware, is of course needed. VoiceShell 
     supports Perfect Sound, Sound Master, GVP DSS 8 and generic
     (i.e. almost any other digitizer) samplers. The voice.library 
     is also required and included in the archive so you won't have 
     to worry about this.

     The documents are in AmigaGuide format, so in order to read 
     them you'll need an AmigaGuide reader.

     There is an install script included, so you may use this to 
     install VoiceShell if you have the Commodore Installer program
     on your system.
