Windows Mobile Configuration for Voiced Enabled Control Telnet Server

To enable Vangard Voice when using the GSW Windows Mobile Client is simply modifying a line in the GSW Windows Mobile configuration file. This is accomplished by first copying the configuration file to a workstation (PC) where editing is easier than on a device. Next, add the Vangard Voice Enabling configuration line. This is done by setting the environment variable VVPath to the path of the Vangard Voice XML configuration file. Then save the file and copy it back to the device.

Enable Voice Control on Telnet/SSH Windows Mobile Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:Ensure that the GSW mobile client is not running. If it is running, close the client. This can be achieved by opening the Task manager on the mobile device and stopping the GSW Windows Client.

Step 2: Copy the GSW Windows Mobile Client configuration file to a workstation. On the Windows mobile device, open File Explorer and copy the GSW Mobile Client configuration file (which has a .gswtc extension and is identified by the GSW Globe Icon) to a workstation/PC.

Step 3: Edit the file using an editor such as notepad.exe to add the path to the Vanguard Voice AccuSpeech Mobile XML file (located on the device). The path to the Vanguard Voice AccuSpeech Mobile XML file is added to the configuration file in the Session Section identified [Session] with the square brackets around it. Add the line anywhere in the [Session] section. The path is specified by Vanguard Voice installation. Use the syntax as follows: VVPath= Example: VVPath=\SamplApp.xml

Copy the file back to the device to the appropriate folder on the device. The configuration is completed. Simply make a connection with the GSW Mobile client to the GSW Telnet or SSH Server for Windows and start talking.
