Ask Hal to read you a story or poem
« on: June 05, 2018, 01:31:46 pm »
Came across a nice Plugin by jasondude7116 that allowed Hal to read stories or poems, basically a text file.

I went through and changed it to work properly with UH7 instead of UltraHalAssistant 6.

One has to say, "Please read now story <insert your story or poem text file name here but no txt extension)"
You can also say, "Please read now story list" and Hal will find and name all the stories you have in your story/poem folder.

Example: Please read now story a road less taken
Hal will find the story or poem (if it exists in your Story Folder). If not, Hal will advise you that it does not exist or couldn't be found.
====================================
Make a New Folder under Ultra Hal 7 called Story.
Copy any reasonably short stories or poems into the Story folder. They all must be text files and have a .txt extension.

Copy this readastory.uhp file into your Ultra Hal 7 Folder

Reboot Hal. Go to MENU > General Options > Brain
Scroll down the right side to find Read a story in the list of Plugins and select it.

Restart Hal then you can ask Hal to read stories or poems for you or to you.
Big thanks to jasondude7116!
In the world of AI it's the thought that counts!

was their anything like a pause on this ?? also it would be cool if hal could somehow resume after being shut down , from the last place he left off, don't know if that's possible though.
