Speech Synthesis & Server Installation [ Revised ]

The new core library (libJanet.dll 0.2.4) is speech independent and not a mandatory module in Jubito ecosystem. That means that you install a speech system at choice. It is convenient for those who don't have a sound card to their server and/or don't want to install extra software. However it can be installed later in case of need. Jubito will automatically determine when a speech widget is available.

For Windows version you have to install Speech SDK and copy jspeech.exe to directory where Jubito-server.exe is located.

For the Linux version install the festival speech synthesis system.
Open a terminal and type...

sudo apt-get install festival

Jubito Server Installation Process
To run Jubito server on Windows you need .NET Framework 4.0 and later and Mono for Linux (sudo apt-get install mono-complete). Then download and extract Jubito server in a directory of your choice. Please make sure you have setup properly the Jubito Server.
Additional information might be available at download section.

For the record, whether version you download will work fine at any OS in any case. The core library (libJanet.dll) is common and the only difference is the server GUI implementation which is Windows Forms & Gtk#.

0.2.4 version changes can be found here.

Jubito media center

As we explained in Instruction Set Anatomy post, Jubito can run other system processes (programs) with ./ (dot-slash) indicator in order to fetch the result and use it to synthesize a new custom instruction set.

In this example we'll use the above method to organize our favorite movies in one group and use Jubito as a remote control.

First let's see the syntax of the ./ -dot-slash

./'[program path]' '[arguments]'

Calling a program with no arguments will be like...

./notepad.exe or ./'notepad.exe'

Single quotes are not necessary when we make a call without arguments.

In the case of our media center example, we'll use the vlc program with extra arguments, such as -f for start in full screen and the path of the movie. This should be like...

./'C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\vlc.exe' '-f "C:\Downloads\movie.mp4"'

You can test the path before creating it from the run command like this...
C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\vlc.exe -f "C:\Downloads\movie.mp4"

After that you'll be ready to make your own Instruction Set list!

Please make sure that you enclose your executable and arguments in single quotes ('). It is mandatory for the system to split it up correctly. Double quotes (") are used for the file path.

So, that was it. You can now remote control your favorite movies or any other application by using this method.

A blast from the past... :)
