listen to spoken instructions Instructions pour naviguer Meilleurs Airs Classiques - avec la reconnaissance vocale.
Introduction Générale.

La reconnaissance de commandes vocales en français n'est pas prêt encore.

La page de reconnaissance de la parole, dans le site de Meilleurs Airs Classiques, vous permet pour sélectionner une page du site, ou de jouer de la musique dans le site, simplement en utilisant votre voix. Actuellement, cette fonctionnalité marche uniquement avec Chrome le navigateur de Google. Par conséquent, ceci est une page expérimentale à ce stade. La seule fois où vous avez besoin d'utiliser la souris est d'abord de mettre ce système à écouter. Ensuite, vous devez autoriser le microphone. Ceci est une exigence de confidentialité, de sorte que le microphone ne peut pas être laissé  a enregistrer votre discours lorsque vous prévoyez de ne pas le laisser faire. En outre, vous pouvez écouter ces instructions vocales par une voix de votre choix. Il suffit de cliquer sur une icône 'oreille', ou cliquez sur l'intérieur de toute texte. Pour arrêter la voix de parler, cliquez sur l'icône «oreille d'arrêt», ou appuyez simplement sur la touche 'X'.

Pour une personne valide, utiliser la reconnaissance vocale pour contrôler la navigation peut encore être beaucoup plus rapide que d'utiliser le menu. Par exemple, pour utiliser le menu pour écouter le 1er mouvement de la 5e symphonie de Beethoven que vous avez réellement avoir à utiliser 4 clics de souris, et environ 3 ou 4 caracteres. Vous passerez par 2 ou 3 niveaux différents de la hiérarchie des menus. Considérant que, si vous dites cette phrase assez rapidement mais clairement dans le microphone, vous pouvez entendre la musique presque instantanément: - le premier mouvement de la Symphonie numéro 5 de Beethoven

Pour les personnes ayant un handicap physique à leur bras, du poignet, de la main ou des doigts, ce système leur permet d'utiliser leur voix pour contrôler la navigation, avec une utilisation minimale absolue de la souris ou du clavier  Il est accessible du troisième élément du menu  «Commandes Vocales". Ou cliquez sur Ouvrir Commandes Vocales ici

listen to spoken instructionsLe choix d'un morceau de musique.

Le mot clé à utiliser si vous souhaitez entendre de la musique est Jouez.   Ce sera généralement le premier mot de votre demande, bien que cela ne soit pas essentiel.

Si la musique que vous désirez est une chanson folklorique, un air facile à écouter, une comptine ou tout autre type de musique pour lesquels il n'y a pas compositeur spécifique, tout ce que vous devez faire est de dire Jouez  et les mots alors suffisantes du titre de la musique pour lui permettre d'être identifié de manière unique. Par exemple, si vous souhaitez entendre Frère Jacques, tout ce que vous avez à dire est Jouez Jacques, parce que cela identifie de manière unique le titre au base de données.

If you want to hear a piece of classical music, it is most likely that you will need to name the composer, although not always. To hear Tchaikovsky's sixth symphony you will need to say  play Tchaikovsky symphony No.6 3rd movement     or    play  symphony No.6 3rd movement by Tchaikovsky. If you only say  play symphony No.6 3rd movement this will result in lots of matches, because heaps of composers all wrote a "Symphony No.6 3rd movement". In fact this is the message you will see in the 'action taken' box:-
I found 4 tunes or works which match your spoken request. Please try again giving more detail.
Symphony No.6 in B minor Pathetique - 3rd movement by Tchaikovsky.
Symphony No.6 in C D589 3rd movement by Schubert.
Symphony No.6 in D 'Le Matin' Hob 1:6. 3rd movement by Haydn.
Symphony No.6 in F Op 68 (Pastoral) 3rd movement by Beethoven.

In the above scenario you will notice that the piece of music you really wanted came up as first in the list. You will see a green play icon to the left of each item in the list.  To hear your Tchaikovsky symphony (3rd movement),  just click the green icon to the left of the this item in the list.

However, if the piece of classical music you want has a unique word or two in the title,  and also particularly if it has only one movement (basically  if it's a single piece of music)  then it is much easier and quicker to get the piece of music you want. For example, if you say:- play Coriolan Overture you will hear straight away the Coriolan Overture opus 62 by Beethoven. This title is unique, because no other major composer has written a 'Coriolan Overture'. Another fairly easy one is play Farewell symphony 1st movement.   This will play Symphony No.45 in F# minor by Haydn "Farewell" - 1st movement. No other major composer has written a "Farewell Symphony"

listen to spoken instructionsFinding the score, the themes, or a description of a piece of music.

The key word to use if you wish to find out all about a piece of music is describe. This will usually be the first word of your request, although this is not essential. Once you have identified a specific piece of music (or 'tune' the term used mostly by this site), the system will immediately open a 'TuneDetails' page for that tune.

The rules for identifying a tune name are the same as those for playing music (as above), except that the results will be placed as a new web page in a new tab in your browser. You must allow pop-up windows in your browser. For any subsequent describe requests, the page will be placed in this same tab so you only have two tabs open at all times. The original tab containing the 'Speech' page will still be open, but you will need to click on its tab to view it.

This 'Tune Details' page has a brief description of the piece, its key and time signature, its ensemble, category and featured instruments. It displays the musical notation for each theme in the piece. And for many works, it shows the score in the form of a PDF file.

For example. if you say describe chopin waltz in d flat    the tune details page for this waltz will open in a new tab, with a brief description, musical notation for the theme, and the piano score.

listen to spoken instructionsListening to a random selection of music from this collection.

There are two pages in the site for listening to a selection of randomly chosen music. Once you have opened the page with your voice command, the music will start straight away.

  • One is called Six of the Best.  This page randomly chooses six pieces of music from a short list of about 150 of the world's very best classical music. There is no obscure music here, only the best music in the world!
  • The other is the playlist. This page will immediately play 10 tunes chosen at random from the entire Best Classical Tunes database. The three alternative keywords for this page are:-   playlist,     play tunes,     listen to music.   This page also provides options for creating a playlist of pieces individually chosen by you.

listen to spoken instructionsTrying to name that tune that's stuck in your head.

This site has an effective way to identify a piece of music when you can sing its tune inside your head, but can't think of its name. This page is called 'VirtualPiano'. It embodies a dictionary of musical themes,  accessed via a virtual piano keyboard on the screen. You just click up to the first 10 notes of the tune that is in your head, and it will come up with a list of matching tunes if more than one. Or else it'll come up with the single tune that matches your notes

Obviously, once you are on this page, you will need to use the mouse, or touch a touch-screen, in order to play the notes.

To open this page, the key-words are:-  dictionary or virtual or lookup, or search tune, or search song.

listen to spoken instructionsGetting information about a composer and his/her music.

To view a page about a specific composer, showing a brief biography, a photograph, and a list of works by him/her, all you need to do is state the name of the composer.  This page also has buttons to play all the works in sequence, by creating a 'playlist'.  For example, if you say tell me all about Berlioz, this will show Berlioz's page. You could get here much more easily by simply saying Berlioz. This page contains a list of music by this composer, in the form of hyperlinks on which you can click to get to the details page for each piece of music.

listen to spoken instructionsObtaining a thematic index of music written by a specific composer.

The key word for a thematic index is index.  It is very simple, all you need to say is index folowed by the name of the composer. For example,  if you say index beethoven you will get a complete thematic index of all the works by Ludwig van Beethoven which are featured in the Best Classical Tunes database. These are listed in alphabetical order by tune title. Within that, all the themes for a particular piece of music are shown in musical notation. If the work has more than one movement, these are obviously listed in numerical order, with all their themes.

listen to spoken instructionsFinding out about a specific instrument, and music written for it.

To find out about a specific instrument, simply state the name of that instrument. For example, if you say french horn it will go to the 'Opus by Instrument' page for the French Horn. At the top of this page there is a green play button, which when clicked will play a sample of french horn music, illustrating the sound of this magnificent instrument. Then there is a keyboard diagram indicating the range of notes for the French Horn. As well as being useful for players, this will help composers and arrangers wishing to write music for this instrument. It then has a picture of a French Horn and a description of the instrument. Then there are too big red buttons. The first, when clicked, will  play all the music for the french horn that is in this database. The other big red button, when clicked, will go to the thematic index of music for the french horn.  Last, but not least, there is a list of music written for the french horn. This is in the form of hyperlinks to the details page for each piece of music, together with its composer and its category.

As well as naming composers or instruments to get where you want, you can navigate by:-

  • the country of origin of the music or of its composer. For example, just say france  to see a page with musically relevant information about France, followed by a list of French music. This is in the form of hyperlinks to the details page for each piece of music, together with its composer, ensemble and its category.
