Command Sets

Command sets represent one or more command phrases tied to an application.

  1. I recommend using at least two words for a command phrase or a long word so that the Microsoft Speech Recognition doesn't react if you say something similar.  For example, I had used the word blink only when playing World Of Warcraft but often times I would say something similar and I would blink into a crowd of enemies ;)  I changed that to blink now and now I don't have that problem.
  2. To add a new command set simply right click in the What Can I Say? dialog and select Add Command Set... from the dropdown menu.
  3. Do not prefix your new command set phrase with the word activate because Killers VoiceCommand will automatically do this when loading the command set.
  4. Once you have added a new command set you will automatically get an untitled command phrase to get you started.
  5. Command Set Editor

  6. To change this default command phrase simply double click it or right click it and select the Edit... menu item.
  7. I myself use Killers VoiceCommand to control several of my characters in World Of Warcraft and specifically my main character Killers who is a fire mage.
  8. In World Of Warcraft, I have bound each of the {ALT} keys to Action Bar items and then I enter those keystrokes in Killers VoiceCommand
  9. Voice Command Editor

    For example, here I clicked Record to add the {F1} key which selects my character Killers in World Of Warcraft.
  10. I then click Record again to add the key combination {ALT}m which is tied to a Right Action Button 1 command below in World Of Warcraft.
  11. To setup World Of Warcraft for Killers VoiceCommand visit the support page to get started.
  12. WoW Key Bindings

Open Commands

Open commands represent command phrases that allow you to start your favorite application or open a particular website. Killers VoiceCommand contains several examples of open commands.

  1. To edit an open command simply double click or right click on a open command and select the Edit... menu
  2. Here you can test opening an application or a website that you will use.
