Some tips -
You have to do the speech training. It uses the Windows engine for understanding you and if that doesn’t have a voice record file it will struggle.
I will assume you have installed the Vaicom folder and loaded the profile. Follow the PDF guide in the Vaicom folder.
You shouldn’t need any more than 3 buttons hotas mapped and possibly only one depending on how you have the DCS Easy comms set.
If you don’t turn on Easy comms in your mission or you are on a multiplayer server that doesn’t have it enabled:
TX 1 - VHF AM
TX 2 - UHF
TX 3 - VHF FM
If you enable Easy comms in your mission or the Multiplayer you are joining has it enabled:
You must use the Vaicom commands to get it to work. You must know how they are set up - go through the command list and print it out if need be. Having said that there are some that you will use alot, particularly tanker commands so use those to get it working and then branch out with other commands.
ATC, Request Engines Start
…are good ones to try for example
So here is a method to get it working-
Open up Voice attack and go through the Vaicom profile. Set TX - 4 to a hotas key
Make a mission in Caucasus with a plane with a ramp start at Batumi. Add a tanker not too far away and an Awacs as well. Make sure to turn on Easy Comms in the mission options.
Make sure the button you have mapped to TX-4 is not mapped to anything else, anywhere!
By default you jet will be tuned to ATC you are at:
Say: “ATC, Request Engines Start” They should respond back to you as if you did it via menus.
Go from there. Fly around and contact Batumi. Join the Tanker and get him to Pre-contact via voice. Call Awacs.
Read pages 15-19 in the guide for command examples and try them till you get it.
Once you have done that and you like it, Edit your mission and assign freqs to the Tanker and Awacs and turn off Easy Comms. Assign Hotas buttons to TX-1 thru 3 depending on your jet and Tune the radio to Tanker and then voice command and see it that it works.
It works really well for AI wingmen.
Once you have it working the only challenge is to learn to speak, and spell, Vaicom.
Edit: I just looked up what is not in the Pro version and you don’t have auto-select. That means you must use the select command to talk to the resource that Vaicom will interact with first. It will then talk to that until you use the command to talk to another resource. So say Batumi…Select and then issue commands and so on. I am used to Auto-Select which just as it sounds changes the focus automatically when you say Batumi…Inbound.
Edit again: Lets get the name right this time
