Ian Reilly of the FS++ team informs us of the following: “……. We are pleased to inform the flight simulation community, that an updated version of our voice control add-on to FSX & FS2004 has been released today. The new improved version is available for download at this link….”.
“….. Things that are new include improved ATC feature, tweaked application for better performance on single core machines, addition of more variations to the co-pilot vocabulary, ixed the <view> button in CL tab of the user interface sometimes not showing checklist. You can now akso ask the co-pilot to execute the after landing sequence of actions, interact with the virtual co-pilot the way real world pilots do, give verbal commands, and watch them executed, carry out interactive checklist( and yes we mean it), with item status checked on the fly.
Furthermore use your microphone to talk to ATC, get told off by your first officer when deviating from standards you get to set yourself, navigate the Simulator User Interface almost entirely by voice, and this particular feature is free to use.
This is all event driven, no dumb scripts that force you to do everything in fixed order. In all, there are 4 major features, and each could be considered a separate add-on on its own. A fully working time limited demo is available for download. For more information, visit our website. ….”.
