VR With headset 100% on no more lifting it

Post by Darky » Sun Sep 06, 2020 12:49 pm

Seen this posted by a few people now that fly flight sims and love the immersion VR gives but cannot use their switch panels.
This is not a way to use the pass through to see your panels but a way of keeping on your headset on for 100% of the time.
I fly IL2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad that has many keystroke functions so i bought switch panels to make this easier than trying to remember that left control plus 1 will get the flare gun and left control tilde will put the flare gun away and many many more configurations.
I was told about a program that is perfect for VR, i can now fly with my headset on press my map key on my joystick and make it zoom in or out left or right by saying zoom in or move left.
I can select my flare gun by just saying red flare.
I can put the flare gun away by just saying remove gun.
I can see the online stats of our battle by saying scoreboard.
The list of things is endless by using a program called Voice Attack. https://voiceattack.com/
This program selects keystrokes for your joystick and keyboard and mouse by voice commands.
When in multiplayer games and i get shot down i can say escape and my game goes back to the selection page to choose another aircraft without lifting my headset at all.
I do not have any connections with the developer of Voice Attack apart from buying the full version for £7.89p after using the free version, just sharing this information for anyone who is interested.

I love voice attack. I've used it for years with Star Citizen -- I call my computer "Hazel" (since it is an uncommon word that works great as the activation word).

It would work great with VR in BoX but for me talking to a computer in the cockpit just wouldn't feel right in a WW2 aircraft...

I use Voice Attack too! It's invaluable for those commands that are non-immersive such as "esc" or bringing up the stats page. Highly recommended. I have the full version but the free one gives you 20 functions which is more than enough for BOX.
