This is how your PC will look like, after installing the JARVIS software

Its awesome!

The awesome JARVIS look, the responsive home screen, the voice response, I am loving it!

JARVIS is the personal assistant of Iron Man, and you know it, of course!

You might want to do the same for your desktop too! Almost everyone is tired of the old Windows look.

You probably have seen someone doing it and this has increased your curiosity further.

Imagine how it would feel to shock your friends by shutting down your computer by just saying it!

Or how it would feel like when the computer would greet you at start up?

At the end of this tutorial, you will feel like saying: “I love JARVIS software!”

The transformation process of turning your computer into JARVIS from Iron Man is simplified into three steps:

JARVIS Software Mission –

Step 1: Set Up Windows Speech Recognition

A basic but the most important step. You will learn how to set up speech recognition. Click on the below link to get started:

Make your computer respond to your voice

Its a small tutorial on how to set up Windows Speech Recognition.

Make sure you do it! Its the base of what we are going to do.

Step 2: Installing Windows Speech Recognition Macros

Download Windows Speech Recognition Macros Software. (Available in the files)

After Installing, you will need to configure it as per your needs. We’ll use the Windows Speech Macros.You must already have downloaded this software from the given link and installed it.It is recommended to put its shortcuts in two places, one in the desktop and other in the start-up folder, allowing it to the second your computer starts.Here is how to set up the commands :

Double Click The Macros Icon, and when the window pops up asking “What should the macro do?” Then click “Advanced.” For those of you familiar with creating websites, this should be a welcome site. WSRM uses XML for commands… which makes creating custom commands relatively simple and fun. For those of you who aren’t aware of XML, it’s still easy. Here is what you need to learn.

<speechMacros> – This is the starting Tag, it just tells the computer that this XML file uses the Speech Macros to execute.

<command> – This is the command to be executed. Each command is basically one action… in most cases you will only need one, but for some automations you’ll want to include more than one. You’ll see an example of this later.

<listenFor></listenFor> – This tells the computer what word or phrase to listen for in order to do an action. Notice that there is a closing tag (</listenFor>), this tells the XML that this spot in the code is where to stop doing whatever function… in this case stop listening for a word or phrase once the computer hears it.

</command> – The closing tag for the “Command” tag… again, in XML every tag will have an opening/closing tag and what happens between the two is how it knows what to execute. In this case it knows that the command is finished once the word/phrase has been detected.

</speechMacros> – This is the closing tag of the first tag!

<listenfor> tags will be used by your computer to identify what they have to listen for to execute any action

If you want your computer to greet you when you say “Wake Up JARVIS”, then use the below macros
<listenFor>Wake Up Jarvis</listenFor>
<speak>Systems Online, Database Check, Good Morning Sir !</speak>
I love this one the most!

An Speech Macro For Getting The Weather :

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-16″?>
<listenFor>Pull up the weather in [CityName]</listenFor>
<run command=”http://www.weather.com/weather/local/{[CityName.zipCode]}”/>
<listenFor>Is it cold in [CityName]?</listenFor>
<speak>Let me check… just a moment.</speak>
<script language=”JScript”>
<var xml_doc = new ActiveXObject(“Microsoft.XMLDOM”);
<xml_doc.async = false;
<var titles = xml_doc.getElementsByTagName(“title”);
<var descriptions = xml_doc.getElementsByTagName(“description”);
<Application.Speak(titles.item(2).text + ” in {[*CityName]}”);
<listenForList name=”CityName” propname=”zipCode”>
<item propval=”65201″>Columbia</item>
<item propval=”37201″>Nashville</item>

A Macro To Restart The Computer :
You will just have to say “Nuke It!” and the computer will restart :

<listenFor>Nuke it</listenFor>
<speak>Rebooting The System.</speak>
<run command=”C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe” params=”-r -t 00″/>

Macro To Shut Down The Computer :
You will have to say “Goodbye Jarvis” And the Pc Will Shut Down :

<listenFor>GoodBye Jarvis !</listenFor>
<speak>Getting Offline,Bye Sir</speak>
<run command=”C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe” params=”-s -t 00″/>
