I used to hear a neighbor that lived in the apartment below me. His girlfriend was always screaming.... but they never argued.

Being a married man myself, I think the key word there is "girlfriend".   :o :'

The latest trial version pops up a box explaining all that when you start it up.   B:(   ;)

I finally got BVC working to my satisfaction And it is great. In fact it has become a topic on its own. All my friends talk about it. And my grand sons love to give their command and at least they think they control the lights. I am thinking of setting BVC in their own rooms.
Here is how I communicate with BVC:
I modified a baby monitor, just as Dave had done, and I use my telephone system's intercome to talk to monitor. I do need your help to figure out how my wife too can use the system. Can BVC operate with more than one voice using the same setup? I'll need to do that for my grand sons as well or I'll have a reballion on my hands. oh the boys are only 4 & 6.

Thanks again for a flawless system and keep up the good work. Also do let me know if I can be of any help.

Hummm. Does that mean your [sending] monitor is in listening range of at least one phone... so using the phone intercom from anywhere in the home works?

I do need your help to figure out how my wife too can use the system. Can BVC operate with more than one voice using the same setup? I'll need to do that for my grand sons as well or I'll have a reballion on my hands. oh the boys are only 4 & 6.

Whereas Bill hasn't worked out that wife (as another user) thing yet.... my (grown) son can command my setup just fine. I wonder if the two boys will sound plenty close enough to each other as well.

Sorry for such a late reply. You are right, monitor is right next to one of the phones. Only drawback to this setup is that when some one is using this particular phone, i get to hear it down in basement. Of course the monitor can be turned off for the duration of the call.
Boys do sound close enough. I'll give it a try on their next visit.

I would like to get some ideas from you all on how to use the "speak text file" feature.  I know I can surely use this feature but right now my brain went on vacation!  Maybe we can share ideas on how to use this feature!   :)

One of the reasons for speaking text from a file was to support the reading of text files created by other software.  It could be anything from current weather readings or sports scores to status output from some other sensing program.

The other reason was that some people wanted BVC to speak text that was either too long or too difficult to manually enter into "Speak a Custom Phrase" style setups.

One user, for instance, wanted BVC to speak a random Bible passage every morning, but the total number and length of the passages was too much for a "Custom Phrase".  Now, the passages can be stored in separate text files and BVC can randomly choose a text file (passage) to speak.

I just write the tools, it's the user's imagination that brings them to life!   ;)
