Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
VR Commander does a fine job of letting you control your computer through the use of voice commands. Its uncluttered interface makes it easy to get started right away, with several common application templates to choose from. We particularly like the option to use an Activation Key, allowing us to use VR commander only when and where we need it. Creating new templates for voice commands also is fairly easy, with an intuitive dialog box that takes you through the process of creating each command in the sequence. After some trial and error, anyone can start creating templates for their favorite applications including games, but VR Commander comes with several premade templates for common programs such as Microsoft Outlook and Windows Media Player. We would have preferred a longer period of time to review this app, as the demo limited us to only seven days. If you're in the market for quality speech-recognition software and are willing to do a thorough testing in the seven-day allotment, VR Commander is a great option.

Developer's Description

VR Commander is a state of the art voice command and control program that adds a voice interface to virtually any windows based application. Simulate keystrokes, run any file or script, and input text strings of any size into games and applications using voice commands. This technology is so powerful it is used to command and control some of today's most advanced fighter aircraft. Built in noise cancellation technology even allows VR Commander to work with Bluetooth headsets. It's the perfect compliment to VOIP. Version 3.1 adds new templates.
