'fraid I'm impelled to offer some un-perl-ish solutions, after viewing your issues with most of the replies below
No problem, any help is appreciated. I was just hoping to stay away from Java, knowing very little about it in the first place.
Might you consider writing a perl wrapper for controls around two different audio packages (one for *n*x, including tiger10) and one for 'doze?
Just might have to do that. Mostly why I posted here was to see if anybody had done what I'm am trying to accomplish, to save me the time of having to write 2 different scripts/programs. But, as I am finding so far, it looks like this might be the way to go. The 2 python packages I posted above, one is very old, not much activity. The other I posted a question to their list yesterday and still haven't gotten a response. If I would have problems with the package, not sure I'd receive any kind of help in a timely fashion. I must admit also, I have a bias for Perl, not too fond of Python, but have used it before. :(
Why not go with direct speech to text? Someone -- usually clerical -- is going to have to proofread/re-listen to the saved audio to get it anywhere near the dictator's intent.
You are exactly write. I wrote the system using VB consisting of 3 parts. A recorder, which works through activex controls. A daemon that processes the recording once the actual recording is converted to an asf and transferred to a network drive. And then the transcriptionist, which streams the processed asf file to the transcriber, which is the person that would be doing the proofreading/listening. We have talked over the speech-to-text pathway before, however, this would still require my pre-requisites of the original recording functionality.
Thanks for your post.
