ChatScript GUI "Proof of Concept" project
« on: May 30, 2011, 10:41:32 am »
Some folks may (or may not) be aware that I joined the ChatScript Project some time ago, and have been helping out where I can; I've also, however, been working independently on creating a GUI for CS that somewhat extends beyond the "command window" interface it currently uses (not that there's anything wrong with a CLI, mind you... I'm just spoiled, is all. :) ). This new interface is still in "Pre-Alpha" status, and is likely to have compatibility issues with certain versions of XP (depending on whether SAPI is enabled). Currently, the GUI has built-in TTS (hard coded in, but later will be set up as an option), and plans are in the works to add speech recognition, as well, along with a load of other configuration options. The app is available for download at http://www.geekcavecreations.com/Downloads/ChatScriptGUI_Setup.zip.

A few things to mention:
1.) This GUI does NOT come with the ChatScript engine included, and won't do very much without it. If you don't have ChatScript already installed, you can get it at http://chatscript.sourceforge.net/.
2.) Like all apps that I've written, I've created an installation package for it, to make it easier to install/uninstall.
3.) As I've indicated already, this is a "work in progress", and may cause problems (though I certainly hope not!). I've only got 2 computers that I was able to test it on, so I'm sure that I haven't covered every scenario.

Some of the features I'm planning on implementing:
  • Speech recognition (I think I mentioned that, already)
  • TTS configuration options for pitch, tempo, "breathiness" and voice name (if there is more than one installed voice)
  • Configuration options to allow for connecting to a remote (rather than local) server
  • A help file, along with other documentation

Feedback is always humbly accepted. :)

Hi Dave,

I haven´t started working with ChatScript yet; but, high on my wish list would be XMPP compatibility, and interface to major avatar system(s), perhaps even via XMPP?

Cheers,

I'll have a look at that, Marcus, just as soon as I find out what XMPP is. :P

In a nutshell, XMPP is the open IM standard, the linga fanca for chatbots, allowing them to interact with all other networked systems, including avatar systems (not to mention other chatbots) ..

Do you know of many chatbots that use the xmpp protocol already and how are they using it? (perhaps this can be moved to another thread)

Dave, I noticed on Chatbots org that you updated this.  Is the file linked to here still valid, did you just replace it?  I would like to try it out next week as I will hopefully have a little spare time.

Thanks :)

I'm sorry, Freddy. I got side tracked before I could post the update here. The updated post there also contains an updated URL, since the filename is different. You can download the new version at http://www.geekcavecreations.com/Downloads/CSGUI_setup.zip, and you can view a short list of planned features (and leave comments) at http://www.chatbots.org/ai_zone/viewreply/5643/.

Great, it was not a problem, like I said it will be a day or two.  Just wanted to catch you while your were about. Many thanks :)
