INTRODUCTION:
Thank you for purchasing FS2CREW: PMDG 747 VOICE COMMANDER EDITION. This is a complex product that adds voice control to the PMDG 747 for FSX and FS9. This edition uses the latest ‘Voice Control’ technology. It also features the latest FS2Crew techniques designed to lower the learning curve while at the same time bolstering the feeling of realism. The Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) modeled in this version are based on the same SOPs used at a real-world airline operating in the Oceania region. While the PMDG 747 is a sophisticated aircraft, it is also very automated and, as a result, it’s fairly easy to fly. A user who follows the tutorial flight carefully should be able to master the program within in a few flights.

Solution: Using a Headset is HIGHLY recommended (make sure you select ‘HS’ on the FS2Crew Main Panel so you can route the First Officers (FO’s) audio through the headset). I get an error message related to a missing DLL. Do NOT click “CANCEL”. If using XP. If you do not own a headset and do not wish to buy one. Situation: The ‘VOICE’ button on the Main Panel does not stay on. Situation: My frame rates dropped significantly after loading the 747. Situation: The Flight Crew volume is hard to hear. FS2Crew PMDG 747 Voice Commander Version 1. Also set the FS2Crew volume to Max on the FS2Crew Configuration panel. ensure the SAPI speech engine is installed. Wait for the installer to finish even though it may take a long time. try turning down the Engine sound volume slider via the MSFS sound controls menu. Solution: Run the FS2Crew installer again.FAQS: Situation: After loading the 747 (in windowed mode). Solution: Ensure “Language” in the Windows Speech Recognition tab is set to ‘English – US’. Solution: Ensure “Language” in the Windows Speech Recognition tab is set to ‘English – US’ (not English – UK).2 Page 6 . under ‘Settings’.

Situation: The speech recognition system is not detecting my voice very well. Please disable UAC fully.cfg. This is especially important for XP users to note. The other possibility is that you have UAC enabled and UAC is blocking the PMDG Config Manager from updating the panel. try to enunciate clearly with an American accent. Do you see FS2Crew window and gauge entries on it? If not. FS2Crew PMDG 747 Voice Commander Version 1. Click here to learn how.cfg files for the PMDG 747 with notepad. it means FS2Crew did not install properly and in all likelihood you have a very common FSX registry problem. Only do this AFTER the FS2Crew Main Panel has been loaded. nothing happens.2 Page 7 . Please run the Registry Repair Tool available in the FS2Crew 2010 Configuration Manager and re-install FS2Crew. Solution: Be sure to run a “Voice Training Session” via the Windows Speech Recognition panel prior to using FS2Crew for the first time. Solution: Go to your ‘Windows Speech Recognition’ settings panel and check that your microphone sensitivity has not been reset to full.Situation: When I click the gauge used to open the FS2Crew Main Panel. Situation: The Speech Recognition system seems too “sensitive” and it appears to be picking up either engine noise or other background sounds. Solution: Open the panel. Also we recommend that you use a good quality USB microphone. and when speaking.

the “gear up” command will only work under selected circumstances. Try to reduce ambient background noise. We recommend all users consider upgrading to the English version of Windows 7 (or Windows 7 Ultimate) for non-English users. computers are still not as good as the human ear. Use a USB headset. FS2Crew used Windows 7. For example. If you forget the required checklist response. being detected by the voice recognition system and implemented. when you’re doing the pre-flight events or when you’re taxiing.) Firstly. And even the human ear can make mistakes. our system helps prevent an unintentional “gear up” command from being implemented by your FO. for example. (By “false positive” we mean an unintended voice command. Speak clearly and distinctly. just say “NEXT” or “CHECKED” to move to the next checklist item! THE WAY FS2CREW HANDLES VOICE RECOGNITION: To improve the end-user’s experience as well as to ensure minimum voice command “false positives”.TIPS FOR USING VOICE CONTROL: Voice control is not always 100 percent accurate. While speech recognition technology has improved substantially over time. such as “gear down”. even when the user didn’t intentionally say “gear down”. FS2Crew has taken the following steps. Should the speech recognition system accidently hear “gear up”. During development. FS2Crew PMDG 747 Voice Commander Version 1. We found the accuracy of voice recognition to be extremely good.2 Page 8 . Here are some tips to help improve speech recognition accuracy:     Run the Voice Training Profile in the Microsoft Speech Recognition properties. FS2Crew has linked many voice commands to selected conditions to reduce the likelihood of a false positive from undermining your in-game simulation experience.

then the FO will end-up turning the landing lights back off. If the switches. Things to watch for: KEYPRESSES: 1) Key presses can be “intercepted” if another window that accepts text input is “in focus”. FS2Crew will send the key press assigned to Level Change to simulate pressing that button.2 Page 9 . HOW FS2CREW INTERFACES WITH THE PMDG 747: Because no SDK is available for the PMDG 747. the FO will toggle the landing lights as part of this procedure. if you call for the Runway Entry procedure. PLEASE CHECK APPENDIX H FOR THE FULL LIST OF FS2CREW-PMDG KEY ASSIGNMENTS. So please don’t blame FS2Crew! All FS2Crew does is transmit the same key press you would make to activate selected aircraft functions on the PMDG 747 via the PMDG keyboard assignments. For example. such as the landing lights. if the landing lights were already on prior to you calling for the Runway Entry Procedure. 2) Do not switch panel views while the mini-panels are open or they may not close. 2) If. the only way that the First Officer (FO) in FS2Crew can control switches and buttons on the PMDG 747 is via the available PMDG key assignments and simulated mouse clicks. are in the expected position. FS2Crew PMDG 747 Voice Commander Version 1. such as the Squawkbox text input window. deselect the ‘Automatic Window Switching’ option to help keep the Flight Simulator window in focus. for example. if you speak “SELECT LEVEL CHANGE”. then there is a possibility that the aircraft is not configured properly to accept a VNAV engagement command. However. you speak: “SELECT VNAV” and VNAV does not engage on the autopilot panel. All he does is blindly flip switches.Note: Autopilot commands will only work while airborne. SIMULATED MOUSE CLICKS: 1) The FO is essentially “blind”. then there is no problem. For example. If using Squawkbox.

FS2CREW DOES NOT ATTEMPT TO CONTROL THE CARGO DOORS WHEN USING THE FREIGHTER MODELS. Your view will be blocked for a few seconds. FS2Crew will automatically detect if you are using a Cargo or a Passenger model. If you don’t want this to happen. click the screw in the far left hand corner of the FS2Crew Main Panel. If using a Cargo model. So do not be surprised if the ‘main’ overhead panel opens up briefly on a few occasions if using FS9/FS2004! Special Note for FS9/FS2004 users: The only time the ‘big’ overhead panel is a nuisance is when you taxi-in after landing and the FO opens the ‘big’ panel to turn on the APU. He can only use the original ‘big’ (original) overhead panel to flip switches associated with these functions. the FS2Crew FO will not attempt to open the ‘big’ overhead panel and start the APU. When that symbol is visible. When replying to the “CABIN CLEARANCE” challenge in the checklists. speak: “NOT APPLICABLE”. Fuel or the Electricals.3) In FS2004/FS9 only. When you do that. please note the following: 1. FA and purser interaction will be disabled. 3.2 Page 10 . You will need to start the APU manually. the FS2Crew FO cannot use the Mini-Panel to flip switches on the overhead that he is attempting to control for the following items: The APU. YOU NEED TO CONTROL THE CARGO DOORS MANUALLY!!! BECAUSE THERE ARE TOO MANY POSSIBLE CONFIGURATIONS. 2. a ‘+’ symbol will appear on the Main Panel display. FS2Crew PMDG 747 Voice Commander Version 1.

STEP 7 (SOFT AND HARD MUTING):
1. Should you wish to prevent your virtual First Officer from acting on “any” speech commands or noise that speech recognition detects, you can ‘mute’ the FO. You would

FS2Crew PMDG 747 Voice Commander Version 1.2 Page 24

typically use the mute function when communicating with an on-line ATC or if you are running a simulated brief (should you wish to do that). SOFT MUTE: Push and hold the button you have assigned for the mute function in the FS2Crew 747 Configuration Manager. Release that button to re-engage the FO’s ability to act on recognized speech commands. I recommend using LEFT CONTROL for the soft mute key.

IMPORTANT NOTE IF USING A 'CH YOKE' OR ANOTHER JOYSTICK/YOKE COMBINATION: If you experience that Mute is not working with your Joystick/Yoke, please try the following options: 1) Assign the key you assigned to mute to your desired Yoke/Joystick button via FSUIPC. 2) You can also accomplish the same result using a freeware program called “Joker”. 3) If using a Saitek yoke, you can also follow the advice described in this thread.

HARD MUTE: Left click the LK button on the Main Panel to toggle on/off the permanent (Hard) mute function. An “M” symbol will appear in the top right hand corner of the main display area when mute is functioning. If “Hard Mute” is active, the “M+” symbol will appear and it will flash. A good time to use Hard Mute is when you are in cruise and you do not need to make any speech commands.

Use the mouse wheel to set the altitude at which the FO will call “DECIDE”. You would chose this setting if using GPWS callouts. if the runway elevation was 1000 feet. then the display will change to ‘GPWS’. If set to ‘GPWS’. The value for the Decision Altitude can be found on the Instrument Approach Chart. since the Decision Altitude on a CAT 1 ILS is usually 200 feet above the runway. it is assumed you are doing a CAT II or CAT III approach. This would be used during a standard CAT 1 ILS or Non-Precision approach. not the barometric altimeter. for example. one level below ‘Visual’. Decision Height.ARR ELEV: Arrival airport elevation. On a regular ILS. the FS2Crew FO will not announce V1 or Decide. then the “DECIDE” call is based off a Barometric altimeter value. in which case the “DECIDE” call is based off the Radio Altimeter. Important: If the DH value is set to 200 feet or greater.2 Page 28 . FS2Crew PMDG 747 Voice Commander Version 1. then it is assumed you are doing a Visual approach. you’d probably set DH to a value like 1200. DH: If the value is set to below 0 (in other words. If the value is set to a number greater than 0 but less than 200 feet. and no “DECIDE” call will play. It’s better to set the elevation higher rather than lower. If the value is set to 0. Do not forget to set prior to takeoff! Use the mouse wheel to increase/decrease Arrival Elevation in 50 foot increments.
