  • Siri like system for PC

    Dear friends,

    Do you know something similar with Siri for iPhone but which can work on PC? I'm curios if there is something like Siri but without the need to press any button.

    Any link or related information is welcome and very appreciated. Big TY!

      This x2. "Hey Cortana" triggers it. Works pretty well.

        Here's some more info on Cortona that might help. Cnet 'Hey, Cortana' on Windows 10

        Just an fyi...You can now get siri to work without pushing a button. Cnet Apple's 'Hey Siri' voice activation

            I saw one of those last month and wanted one instantly... very cool, but expensive... especially when you add in all those extras for home automation. Maybe when I when the lottery. lol

                I pre-ordered my Amazon Echo (4 to 6 month waiting period) for $100. I use it every day. I can play my Audible books, set timer or alarm clock, listen to world news, etc. It is best to be a Prime Member to take advantage of the Amazon ecosystem.

                  Well, I already had Wemo lights switches before I bought the Echo (they come with their own app). With the echo I can just say "Alexa turn on bedroom light" and the light comes on instead of having to use my phone. Plus podcasts, music, alarms. It is amazingly handy. Most I have won in the lottery is 4 dollars, its not that expensive. In fact I pay the same for the deductible for my catheters every month.
