Logos,

Our Pastor has ALS.  He can speak and move his eyes and head but is otherwise paralyzed.

I'm a software engineer, Microsoft MVP.

I would like to write a voice recognition application that can control Logos. 

Do you have an SDK or do you expose Windows Automation that I can program against?

Much appreciate your time,

Karl

Welcome Big Smile

Logos 7.10 and Verbum 7.10 include => NEW Logos Now Feature: Faithlife Assistant for Logos Now and Verbum Now members.

Logos wiki has => Accessibility on the Windows Platform and => Logos 4 COM API

thanks for the reply.

If I can automate Logos, the Assistant would be a good way to submit commands.

Logos 4 COM API would probably not work with Logos 7.

Maybe one of the developers would know about the API's for Logos 7.

Faithlife changed application architecture from using Internet Explorer for screen rendering in Libronix 3 to using Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) with .NET Framework in Logos 4, which is still being used in Logos 7 (albeit with newer WPF and .NET Framework versions along with change to 64 bit).

I just wrote an app using the COM API.  It's limited in what it exposes.  I didn't see a way to send a command to the Assistant.  Of course, these advanced features were not available when the COM API was released.
