Looking forward to your feedback

VOXATC Deluxe
Finally. Voice Recognition for Talking To Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004
Air Traffic Control
VoxATC is the air traffic control environment that serious flight simulation
enthusiasts have been waiting for.
VoxATC is the first ATC add-on for FS2004 that has been developed with
integrated voice recognition.
You can now talk to the controllers using standard ATC phraseology and what
you say will be heard.
Requests must be properly constructed and instructions complied with and
read back correctly.
VoxATC has licensed the AT&T Natural Voice set and has included two voices
with the product. So you get no more robotic sounding speech from the text
to speech engine.
VoxATC is not an adventure generator it runs outside FS2004 as a separate
process.
The main features of VoxATC include:
a.. Fully integrated Voice Recognition

b.. Intelligent agent controllers and AI aircraft

c.. VFR and IFR flights

d.. All ATC units are included (Clearance Delivery, Ground, Tower,
Departure, Approach, Center and Flight Service Stations).

e.. Unicom and Multicom operations handled.

f.. Traffic have user configurable call signs and user set levels for
different airspace types.

g.. SIDs, STARs, waypoints and airways are referred to by name.

h.. Enroute Holds.

i.. Emergencies.
You've always wanted to speak with the Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004
controllers using your own voice - now you can with VoxATC.

VoxATC is the next major step towards Flight Simulator realism.

We highly recommend the Plantronics Audio 90 Headset for use with VOXATC.

Bob Sidwick at RC Simulation raves about Vox ATC. I believe, however, that
there is a 'UK version' in progress and I am waiting for this - at present
it uses American terminology, etc; OK if you fly mainly in USA. I also
understand it to be quite frame rate friendly. There was (is?) a demo
version available so worth giving a try first.
My own view is that Vox ATC coupled with TrackIR is probably as good as it
gets currently (with a yoke and pedals, of course).

I like the sound of it (no pun) a lot. I would likely buy it if it were
$24.95 but at $ 74.95 it's pretty painful. I suspect it's because of the
licensing fees he has to pay to AT&T Natural voices.
