Voice Finger 3.0

Voice Finger is a speech recognition tool that enables you to control your mouse and keyboard just using your voice, in the fastest possible way.

Enables zero computer contact, no need for keyboards and mouses.
Rest your hands and use your voice to command the computer.

A definitive solution for people with disabilities and/or computer injuries.
Some speech recognition software assumes you can type and click for some tasks. Voice Finger was made to do everything by voice.

Also for hardcore gamers.
For competitive gamers, Voice Finger can hit keys and buttons while the gamer moves and shoots, acting like a third hand.


Why Voice Finger is faster to control the mouse:

Windows default way of clicking at the screen by voice
requires several successive commands, which can be slow and tiresome:

First Command...

...then refine with second command...

...then refine with third command...

...and continue until you find the point.

In contrast, Voice Finger's coordinates often requires just one command to click at it:

Complete control of the mouse
Other speech recognition software allows only common clicking of the mouse.
Voice Finger allows:

  • Double-click or click the mouse with the left, middle or right buttons.
  • Drag and drop with any of the three mouse buttons.
  • Do any of the commands above while holding special keys like Control, Shift and Alt.
  • Clicking repeated times automatically. Ex: clicking 30 times in an image gallery, with an interval of 10 seconds between each image, automatically.
  • And virtually anything you can imagine of needing.

Complete control of the keyboard
Voice Finger allows complete control of the keyboard, with short commands to navigate the cursor, type, hold and hit keys and buttons.
Windows default speech recognition has a lot of lengthy commands like "Press 1", "Press A" and "Press down 30 times". Voice Finger cuts down all commands to a minimum length, like "1", "A" and "Down 30", and you are still able to use the mouse buttons with commands like "click left", "click right" and others, and at the same time hold keys like Control, Shift and Alt. With short and direct commands everywhere, you can do more work and avoid pain and tiredness.

Extending speech recognition you use today
Voice Finger allows all the Windows speech recognition commands you already use, and adds all his commands upon it.

Enabling zero computer contact
All the commands above cover virtually anything you can imagine of doing with your keyboard or mouse, so you don't need to keep alternating between talking, typing and clicking.

Preventing, healing and handling Repetitive Strain Injury, Tendonitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Quadriplegia and other disabilities.

At first, Voice Finger was developed by me for personal use, and just afterwards I decided to make it as an application available for download. I acquired Repetitive Strain Injury in 2009, and early on I started to use WSR (Windows Speech Recognition), which is the default speech recognition that comes in Windows Vista and later, to avoid to use the keyboard and mouse.

However, even doing simple things could turn almost impossible with Windows speech recognition default commands, or really could not be made at all by voice. There was some times that I wished to press one key at a time, typing exactly what I wanted, and for doing that I would have to resort to long commands like "Press a, press b",etc. (Imagine saying that for a whole word.) Other times I wished to navigate the cursor, and would have to say long commands like "Move down 30 times", and other times, the worse of all, I wished to click at an specific spot on the screen and would have to resort to the very long process of the Windows "mouse grid", which required several commands for each click. These commands made themselves almost impossible to use them continuously. And there was other things that simply could not be made at all, like just clicking without using a mouse grid, clicking or dragging with the other two mouse buttons, or pressing several keys simultaneously, like Control, Shift and Alt combinations.

The reason for all these things is that Windows speech recognition default commands were made for dictation and other common tasks, but lacks in directly controlling the keyboard and mouse. To enable zero computer contact, this direct control should be available.

Long story made short, I developed my own application for WSR that most of the time click wherever I want with just one voice command and controls the mouse and keyboard with short commands, which makes possible to use it for long periods of time without tiredness. Aside from the new mouse grid, I also put on it everything that I missed in WSR, including even unusual mouse and keyboard commands. My main thought was "If I miss it, someone else may also have been missing it". Everything to not touch the computer. Now I am very comfortable with it, since I use it almost non-stop, and Voice Finger can also be useful for all speech users, since it gives a fast and direct way of typing, moving and clicking anything on the screen.
