Hi! DPI v15 should be all you need. Unfortunately it's only available for Windows so you would need to work either in a Windows VM or a Windows partition. I'm hopeful that there will be options for Mac/Linux in the not-too-distant future but it's not ready yet

Thanks Mike - that was quick - just sent you an email to say hi also.

As a die-hard Mac user I am going to have to set up some sort of Windows environment on my Mac in order to work with mathfly alongside all my other applications that reside on my Mac. Does anyone know what is my best option for Windows alongside macOS? I see options such as 'BootCamp', 'Parallels Desktop', 'VMWare Fusion' and 'VirtualBox' and 'CrossOver Mac'. It seems there is a trade-off between fluidity moving between the two environments and the level of Windows functionality enjoyed. I'll be grateful for advice from anyone who has experience in this area. Thank you. Happy maths, Vincent

As a mac user I would recommend checking out the talon project

Hi I have mathfly all installed on my parallel windows machine within my mac. However, everything is coming through as literal, not as maths. Is it possible for me to post a screen shot here on github?
Mike Roberts
@mrob95
Sure, has the "Messages from natlink" window appeared?

Hi. Thanks for creating this amazing tool. Which latex editor would you recommend for best use with Mathfly (I am using Windows). Many thanks.
Mike Roberts
@mrob95
Hi, no worries! Are you looking to write and compile LaTeX directly or for a What You See Is What You Get editor?
HWJRuser
@HWJRuser
Thanks. I think the former
Something where I can see the latex directly but can build and move around via voice
Mike Roberts
@mrob95

I don't have a huge amount of experience with programs like that but I know a few people have recommended TeXmaker to me and it seems pretty good - you can have the document in the left pane and the rendered output in the right.

In general I would say that an editor that is good for keyboard users will also be good for use with Mathfly - there is nothing particularly special about dictating since it is just emulating keystrokes.

If it would be useful then I can give you pointers on creating a new grammar to map commonly used keystrokes in a particular editor (new file, compile document, etc) to voice commands

@HWJRuser
Thanks. I will try TexMaker.
Oh. That would be great. thanks.

@mrob95

Okay the changes in this pull request should get you started

https://github.com/mrob95/mathfly/pull/22/files

You can either re-download all the files from the new branch (https://github.com/mrob95/mathfly/tree/texmaker), switch branches using git if you're familiar with it, or manually download the new file and make the settings change. Let me know if you have issues getting it set up though.

I hope that the texmaker.py file is reasonably self-explanatory, feel free to add new shortcuts as you need them

I would recommend considering overleaf. It is great and could also be used with voice-based navigation techniques that work well in the browser (though you'd have to set that up).
HWJRuser
@HWJRuser
@mrob95 Many thanks for this. Very much appreciated.
HWJRuser
@HWJRuser
@alexboche I found overleaf quite difficult as the auto complete function seems to conflict with maths fly but probably this is me doing something wrong. Have you had success using overleaf purely via voice? Thanks
Alex Boche
@alexboche
Well no, I should have said I only started using overleaf after my injuries improved and switched back mostly to keyboard/mouse. I am not sure what the autocomplete feature is in mathfly, maybe somebody else can speak to that. The navigation features will also work in texmaker actually but maybe a bit inconsistent. clipboard-based and low-level. Wish best of luck on your voice journey! If you struggle with mouse use, also get an eyetracker

I have DNS version 13. Is that sufficient for mathfly or do I need to upgrade to DPI??
Mike Roberts
@mrob95
That should be fine, I think accuracy is somewhat better with DPI but in principle it will work. mathfly uses exactly the same infrastructure as Caster

@motib
I'll try and see.
I just noticed that the link to Natlink in the installation instructions is broken...
Mike Roberts
@mrob95
Fixed, thanks

@motib
Hi Mike, The installation complained about not finding natlink.pyd. I've uploaded the full printout to https://www.dropbox.com/s/82z60koyhomyift/mathfly-install.txt?dl=0.
Moti Ben-Ari
@motib
I managed to get it to work by myself. The configure natlink from gui didn't work so I tried configure from command line. Then I had to google to figure out how to run install in "elevated mode". May I suggest that you include this info in the installation instructions. Thanks
Moti Ben-Ari
@motib
Is there someway to define an initialization file so I don't have to say "enable core", "enable latex", "enable latex maths" each time I open dragon and an editor?
What pronunciation does mathfly expect? lay-teks, lay-tek, lay-tekh, .....
Alex Boche
@alexboche
you shouldnt have to keep saying that. @mrob95 would know how to fix that
