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, .....

Hello @mrob95
I have a question - I am trying to install and use mathfly following the instructions on the website. When launching dragon I keep getting one error in "Messages from Natlink":

No handlers could be found for logger „monitor.init“

I already tried reinstall Natlink, and also run "pip install dependencies.bat" , but I got the error anyway.
Thanks in advance for help.

@David_Kostak_gitlab Hi! Have you tried using any of the mathfly commands? Do they work? This may be something you can safely ignore.

If not then the first thing to try would be to make this change to the _mathfly_main.py file - moving the logging stuff before the dragonfly import. The window should then show whatever it is that is being logged

mrob95/mathfly@a4fb88f

Let me know

@David_Kostak_gitlab

@mrob95 Hi! Thanks for your answer and help.
Mathfly commands behaves strangely. On one hand when I use expessions as fraction, product, integral, plus or minus, Lyx writes what it´s supposed to (as math expressions).
On the other hand expressions as x-ray, equals, bravo, alpha, or numbers are written in words.
So that's both hopefull and depressing :-)

I followed your instructions. The message is now: WARNING:monitor.init:DPI awareness could not be set; it has been set already.
Which doesn´t seem to be the real problem... I will be gratefull for any ideas what's wrong and what should I try to do.
Thanks a lot.

Mike Roberts
@mrob95
Try the command "enable mathfly"
I don't think the DPI warning is anything to worry about
LexiconCode
@LexiconCode
The only reason the DPI warning appears is because dragon has already set DPI awareness. With other engines it doesn't appear.

@David_Kostak_gitlab
@mrob95 Thank you, "enable mathly" helped, now it works as supposed. Great!

Thank you for this awesome piece of software!

I am a disabled student studying electrical engineering online at Arizona State University.

I was wondering if there is support for Scientific WorkPlace since it is made by the same company that makes Scientific Notebook. The reason why I was wondering about Scientific WorkPlace is because it has official LaTeX support, while Scientific Notebook does not (as far as I know).

Mike Roberts
@mrob95

@secretsquirrel89 Have you given LyX a try? I think I tried for a while to get scientific workplace 6 to work well and found it wasn't really set up well for keyboard input, but I can't remember exactly what the problem was.

If you find that there is something you could do in workplace that you can't do it either LyX or notebook then let me know and I'll try to have another look

Alex Boche
@alexboche
(I never got around to trying Scientific Notebook/workplace which seems cool, but) In my non-expert opinion, Lyx (and probably scientific __) is to Latex as Julia/Matlab is to Python. The latter is definitely good to know but the former is a heck of a lot easier on the eyes :)
