Voice commands

Voice Commands is an app that allows you to execute actions in Liferay using your voice. The portal admin can configure those voice commands. This app requires access to your computer microphone.

The app uses the Web Speech API which currently is only supported by Google Chrome version 25 or later. If the browser does not support the Web Speech API then the microphone icon is hidden.

Add every command that you need in "Voice Commands" option:

+ The first text field "Key phrase" is first phrase the user must to say when she/he wants to execute a command. Example: 'Go to' create user. This value is optional.

+ The second text field "Voice command" is the phrase the user must to say after the "Key phrase" if it exists. Example: Go to 'create user'. If the "Key phrase" does not exist, the user just need to say the phrase "create user" to execute the command.

+ And the last text field "URL" or "Command Value" is the URL where the user will be redirected after saying ['KEY PHRASE'] + 'VOICE COMMAND'.

After the commands have been added, you can start executing them with your voice, by clicking the microphone icon on the dockbar. After you do that, the browser will request your permission to use your computer microphone.

Allowing access to computers microphones is a sensitive action and browsers recognize that. By default if a non HTTPS page tries to access your microphone the browser will request your permission. The problem is that each time your web page is refreshed, your browser will request your permission again. That can become tedious. If you want to avoid that, you can configure your server to support SSL. Now when a HTTPS page wants to access your microphone, the browser will request your permission, but this time it is going to remember your choice and won't ask you again each time your web page is refreshed. For that reason we recommend you to access this app using HTTPS.
