POLL - Speech Recognition in Blender / Other CAD Software

Hello Everyone,
I am doing some research on speech recognition in Blender and similar CAD software.
I would be thankful if I had a LARGE amount of users (Roughly 100-200 users complete the poll question).
I will keep you all updated with my findings.

Do you mean something like this?

I use voice command when I work with Blender, Sketchup, Photoshop, Chrome and my other softwares every day.

Hi rootaman,

Is there a link to this voice command add-on for blender?
Would like to give this a try.


He used Windows voice input,

Sorry for reply late, I used Vocola 3.1 and Windows Speech Recognition which is included in Windows. Both are free to use. However my Vocola got a problem sending SHIFT key to Blender so I work around by using a commercial software call “Key Manager” to bind CAPSLOCK to SHIFT and forward it to Blender… That is more delay to the command…

In 2014 forum, a gentleman posted thread to his work on recording sound in the blender bge: https://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?151392-Using-Microphone-Input-with-the-BGE&p=2786563&viewfull=1#post2786563

Using that thread, you can search for Sound to Text methods in Python and also the Android API calls for speech recognition. You can combine the function to develop an sensor to actuator event. Well, in theory it should work. https://www.programcreek.com/java-api-examples/index.php?api=android.speech.tts.TextToSpeech

I would perhaps consider giving something like this a try but there is no functional voice recognition for Estonian accent so tough luck.

I was wondering if you can access the speech recognition via the blender internal game engine.
