Just thought I would share a little tweak that I did on my ipad.
I was able to Change all of the voice commands to include commands that i made instead of "play music" and so on ..
This also works on the iphone 3gs

The look on the faces of the apple Store workers when I hit that in the store while I was there to buy a case was priceless...
but first i asked them "Oh hey also while im here... Whats this Function do?"

oh my, that is soooo freaking funny!! what did they say?
05-29-2010, 04:16 PM #5
I told them I bought it second hand from craigslist hahah
my friend has there reaction on his iphone when he emails me the video I will post it..
They looked like a dear in headlights haha
I have managed to change all the voice commands for voice control
with custom things such as "I am bored" Which will play genius playlist.
im trying to get an animated gif to move while the ipad is talking.
I want to convert it to be just like skynet Bot talking
"You are not john conner"

Is this something you'll share? Cause that's the $h*t, is it customizable if you did share? (what is said).

dude, thats fukking awsome.
if/once you get the animated talking voice control, can you/will you please share? thanks! also, while on topic of voice control and seeing your great at modding it, when its in landscape on the ipad, it looks like **** due to the half sized bar...can that be fixed?
05-29-2010, 04:47 PM #8
of course all these things are meant to be shared!!
Will be releasing tut on how to do this in a few hours.
Right now i am working on using the voice controls to launch apps .
05-29-2010, 04:53 PM #9
dude your ruthless with this. is the animation working or seem to be something that will work?
05-29-2010, 04:54 PM #10
Having problems with the animation .. seems that the gif will only play once and then freeze its animation ..
I really want to have a talking terminator head haha
also the bar that you are talking about on the top can be modded to fit Full screen. I will take a look at it cause on mine I made it so there is no bar.
im sure it would be a simple fix matching up the size of the top bar to the lower bar that is the right size
Right now if you want to change what is said on the commands
You will Goto
Then goto plugins folder ..
in there there are three folders
goto english folder... (or whatever your language is) and change it from in there.
if you are not comfortable With SSH you can use ifile to do it right from the device it self.
Going to work on the animation and App launch and Should have it done in a few hours .
Also you can change the blue background to something else..
im going to see if i can change the swirling lines that run across the screen to something like the ducks from duckhunt.. haha
The voicedial i have gotten to work but of course will just Crash since this is the ipad..
but im using that As a base to launch email.
What I want Is to have it so I can Hold down the button and Say "Email (contacts name)" and Have it launch the email app and enter the contacts name ..

the ducks!!! lol

just wanted to comment on the bar that you are talking about thats not even in landscape mode.
This is not because of the Size of the PNG file its a glitch that happens when using voice control On an ipad.
You can test this by starting the voice control in portrait mode and then flipping the ipad on its side.. as you will see the Bar fills up the whole Screen but glitches ..
So this is not something that can be changed with a new png..

I'm in need of stock help.string found/System/Library/VoiceServices/PlugIns/Base.vsplugin/English.Iproj
06-12-2010, 03:42 PM #14
I've edited the Help.String in /System/Library/VoiceServices/PlugIns/Base.vsplugin/English.Iproj but all the iPad say's "help string". If I switch back to the stock file then everything is fine again. Even one charatcter difference in the file produces the same result, "help string". I've tried lots of times being careful to only edit the text and nothing else that might break it.
Can you explain exactly how you change the voice?If I helped please head on over and smash the Thanks button.

I'm not sure that i understand what you mean
06-15-2010, 05:07 PM #16
What's not to understand?
When you say 'Help' to the iPad after holding down the home button it replys 'Using iPhone voice control, you can tell iPad to call contacts, play albums, or play playlists'. I was under the impression from your original post that changing that text in help.strings you can have the iPad saying anything when you say 'Help' to it but ANY change I make to the text part of the help.strings file just produces the result which is the ipad replying "help string".If I helped please head on over and smash the Thanks button.
