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.

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

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

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

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

YOU NEED TO CONTROL THE CARGO DOORS MANUALLY!!! BECAUSE THERE ARE TOO MANY POSSIBLE CONFIGURATIONS. 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. When replying to the “CABIN CLEARANCE” challenge in the checklists. 2. When that symbol is visible. You will need to start the APU manually. If you don’t want this to happen. click the screw in the far left hand corner of the FS2Crew Main Panel. please note the following: 1. Your view will be blocked for a few seconds. 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. When you do that. FS2Crew will automatically detect if you are using a Cargo or a Passenger model. speak: “NOT APPLICABLE”.2 Page 10 . 3. FA and purser interaction will be disabled.3) In FS2004/FS9 only. the FS2Crew FO will not attempt to open the ‘big’ overhead panel and start the APU. a ‘+’ symbol will appear on the Main Panel display. If using a Cargo model. CARGO/FREIGHTER VERSION NOTES: This product supports the Cargo models in addition to the Passenger models.

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.

STEP 8 (The FS2Crew Config Panel):

You would chose this setting if using GPWS callouts. one level below ‘Visual’.2 Page 28 . it is assumed you are doing a CAT II or CAT III approach. in which case the “DECIDE” call is based off the Radio Altimeter. for example. If the value is set to a number greater than 0 but less than 200 feet. If the value is set to 0. It’s better to set the elevation higher rather than lower. the FS2Crew FO will not announce V1 or Decide. then the “DECIDE” call is based off a Barometric altimeter value. FS2Crew PMDG 747 Voice Commander Version 1. This would be used during a standard CAT 1 ILS or Non-Precision approach. since the Decision Altitude on a CAT 1 ILS is usually 200 feet above the runway. then the display will change to ‘GPWS’.
