a few month ago I made an application with the speech recognition extension from ScorpioNormal without Google Dialogue and Continous Speech Recognition option.
Because of any reasons the application doesn´t work anymore. I tried different things, used different extension versions, different cellphones and made all updates on every device.
The application is really simple. Its a 6-Button-Control Panel (Modes 1-6). You can choose/change the mode with finger, the button colour shows the activated mode. If you touch town the choosen mode you send a signal to a bluetooth receiver module (MDBT42Q). This will switch a transistor and works like a button with 6 different outputs, so the goal is to control up to 6 devices.
The voice recognition function should gives availability to do it without hands. And it worked perfectly. I had a record button to give the 6 modes new names and a continous speech recognition button for permanent activation. So it was possible to change the modes and with the pre-programmed keywork ok the choosen mode was switched 1 second high (signal to receiver module).
What happened now after a few month of break? When I press one of the voice recognition buttons (record or permanent recognition), the application starts automatically to do the start and stop sound for recognition. The strange thing, even if I end the application and even when I de-install it.
I found out that when I stopp the access of the Microphone to Google, it´s the only way to stop the permanent start and stop sound of the voice recognition.
Of course I had that sounds also when the application worked but not at the same time and only when I pressed the buttons.
Is this because of a Google Update? Is there another possibility via App Inventor to activate the voice recognition WITHOUT pressing a button?
Sorry but why should be a voice recognition helpful when I have to press a button EVERYTIME first? I would agree for testing but its not very useful for many other projects.
Maybe someone can help me.
ScorpioNormal is not available anymore..
