CAMI Research Inc. has released new software for its CableEye cable and wire harness tester that allows production engineers to use synthetic speech and voice recognition for hands-free operation. Synthetic speech may be employed during production to read pin numbers or provide assembly instructions. Speech modules are available in English, Spanish, French or German.

A single-ear USB headset with a noise-canceling microphone allows the system to operate in a noisy environment while still permitting the worker to hear ringing telephones, pages, or fire alarms. Voice control can be used alone or in combination with standard button controls and barcode scanning to obtain the optimal efficiency for specific tasks.

Windows XP and Vista include basic male and female voice fonts, and a speech recognizer. High-quality voice fonts from AT&T may be used for more realistic speech sound and are available from CAMI Research.

The CableEye Model M3U cable tester (including software and free tech support) is priced at $2,195 for 152 test points, and is expandable to over 2000 points. The speech function is built-in. A high-quality AT&T voice font adds $95 to the system price and can be provided with English, Spanish, French or German speech modules.
