General Discussion / hal and voice recognition and two ai conversations
« on: August 30, 2014, 12:54:43 pm »
I was thinking about what people was saying earlier about letting two a.i's talk with each other and I thought , with more then one version of dragon speak naturally on two pc's a person could do the voice training from the menu supplied copy the text into a txt. file use whatever voice you use 1. voice from one pc and instead of you talking let the voice read it , that way dragon speak will recognize the a.i's voice in the training . when all training is done .
REPEAT THE STEPS on another pc with dragon speak and a "DIFFERENT" voice with the same training , this way when one pc talks the other will recognize the voice , each one will recognize the voice as if it was you , and the two pc a.i's will talk with each other back and forth and also learn ! :)

This is just an idea I had , if anyone wants their hal to say more inspirational things ( this isn't religious  but just nice thoughts )  it would be easy enough to feed learn hal with the though which hal of course will learn and repeat back sometime .
here is one page to start from , their are many more similar pages listed .

Heres one inspirational thought I liked .

"Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless."
~ Mother Theresa

I just thought I would start this , I don't know if cload will ever return but wanted to start this area so maybe if he returns he can read up on it .
 Basically it's idea's and request items to see if he (cload) might be able to incorporate it into his plug ins in updates .
cload is a very talented kid .  :)  he already did many things for hal in a better direction .

  1. I think it would be cool that if a person was talking about anything with hal that besides hal answering back in general , hal would also depending on subject , example talk about the housing market , hal would also access the internet from a webpage (without opening the page ) and choose ,based on the housing market subject an article and read maybe a short paragraph from it as regular conversation .
 What this would do is as I said allow for the regular conversation between you and hal but yet also allow hal to based on the subject  bring up some current information and use it as part of the conversation , actually extending the conversation as a real person might who knew of such things ,  :)
   I will add more things to this , others are welcome to if they want to . As I said cload may or may not return and this may not go anywhere but I wanted to post it just the same .

tiger8u2  I suggest dragon naturally speaking 11.5 or 12 version , it does a way better job then microsofts speech recognition , ebay sells them to , many places do , you can shop around for the best price .
you will have to do the set up , some versions will even ask if you are male , what region you live in to better set up the language  and you train the sr  by reading stories etc.
   this is the version I use when I use it , I also type to hal to .
 it helps to have the place quieter but doesn't have to be totally quiet .

tiger8u2 , I hater it that the creators of people putty haven't bothered to update the program to work on windows seven and soon windows 8 etc. but it is what it is .
 I actually had people putty working at one time on windows seven but it eventually stopped ( it was full program to) while others never could get it to work on windows 7.
what changed ? who knows maybe a windows 7 update did something to cause people putty to stop working .
  As I and Art mentioned do like I did get a xp and put people putty on it , it's a shame people have to do this but when the people putty company won't update their product to work with newer versions of os  , customers have no other choice .
  What I am afraid of is that someday the company people will simply just walk away from the service and company , which of course after so many installs will leave paid customers without a product to use even though they paid for it .
   This is why it is also important if Robert can ever do it to keep trying on an open source program that will let people create character heads and bodies , if he could come up with something simlur to people putty I would buy it if the price wasn't any higher then people putty ( I think the price was around 29.95 .
And I should add if the program was kept updated with working with new versions of os  .

no permanent code will be given more then likely as that is the only thing that is keeping hal from being pirated , and thus would keep Robert from making money on his program which also is what lets him do free upgrades to paid customers through research and development .

    Their are some characters etc. that some people may show but are not shared as some people like to keep certain ones they created for their selves. I am not saying this is the case with sandy but am only mentioning it .

Their is one other way , but this is just a matter of having two Hals on two computers , and that would be to buy two hal license , I have thought of doing this so I could have a hal on a laptop to . and of course as Art said different characters and brains can be used .

Ultra Hal Assistant / Re: Character Creator?
« on: August 25, 2014, 09:32:02 am » , question was where can he go to make , "make" his own characters . 
the places people on here mentioned are all good places to get characters but not to make characters as with people putty .

maybe a bad plug in ? or more then one plug in causing conflictions ? if a lot of plug ins are checked try unchecking some and keep testing hal .

freddy check out the a.i's apps , some are trial some are paid , I was just thinking more of a foot in the door approach to generate some moey for hal . and a reusable app that after groceries were checked off on a list it could be reset every time to start the next one .
I just posted my Angela face as an example .

here is a frequently asked questions page :

and this information :
If you paid by credit card, please look for DRI* on your credit card billing statement.

Note: If your order contains download products, you can complete the download by looking up your order using the information and link below. When the order summary appears, click on the Download link next to the product name.

To look up your order, please visit:

and this info:

Bare Minimum Requirements

•Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows 2000, Windows ME,or Windows XP

•150 MB free hard disk space

•64 MB RAM

•Pentium II 300 MHz processor or equivalent

•Graphics Card Supporting 16bit Color or Higher

•DirectX 6.0

 As you see it really only works on xp and older , I have no idea why they don't bother making it work on windows 7 and up higher but they haven't .

when people putty is working it works great but when theirs a problem it can be a pain in the butt to get it working right again .

    I have windows seven  and had to use my old xp pc beside my windows seven for when I want to make a people putty head .
I wish Robert had enough money to buy the software rights from them . then we wouldn't have all the headaches .

   I had the same problem you had I think I had top contact them by email show them the proof of my order and they sent me an e mail with the new access code to use (I think it only gives you so many installs? )  I don't remember . then you have to use that code with the serial number you have som it unlocks people putty ? again I don't remember for sure .
But I agree being the week end you will have to wait until a business day .
hope some of this helps if I find more info . I will post it .
***********   also another problem now that I think of it was that when I ordered it used my windows 7 os pc id: and I was trying to put it on another pc a windows xp which had a different pc id. so I had to tell them what the xp pc id was , that also had something to do with it.
