Hi all,

You might like ZWCAD+ innovative feature SmartVoice, with SmartVoice, you can add voice annotation to the drawing instead of plain text review comments.

But when you send your dwg drawing to your colleague who use AutoCAD, they can't play your voice that embedded in the drawing. What a pity!

Now this won't bother you anymore. You can play the voice annotation in AutoCAD too. Download following ARX plug-in and load into AutoCAD.

SmartVoice for AutoCAD



Steps to play SmartVoice in AutoCAD:
1. Use AutoCAD to open the drawing with voice annotation that create by ZWCAD+

2. Run APPLOAD to load the ARX plug-in.

There are four ARX routines for different OS (32bit/64bit) and different version of AutoCAD.
"SmartVoiceEnabler2010_xxx.arx" is for AutoCAD 2010~AutoCAD 2012, "SmartVoiceEnabler2013_xxx.arx" is for AutoCAD 2013 and AutoCAD 2014.

SmartVoiceEnabler2010_x64.arx
SmartVoiceEnabler2013_Win32.arx
SmartVoiceEnabler2013_x64.arx

3. Play the voice icon.

Note: the plug-in "SmartVoice for AutoCAD" only enable you to play voice annotation in AutoCAD, but not creating voice object in AutoCAD.


ZWCAD+ SmartVoice quick guide:
How to create a voice object?
1. Go to ribbon menu Tools> SmartVoice

2. Pick up a point within the drawing that you want to place the voice object, then you create a microphone icon.

If you don't want to pick a point, but to mark a region, input S (mean Setting), then choose Region.

Command: _smartvoice
Current SmartVoice Type: Region , Spokesman: XXX
Specify first corner pointer or [Settings]:s
Specify SmartVoice Type [Point/Region/Object/Spokesman] :r
Current SmartVoice Type: Region , Spokesman: XXX
Specify first corner pointer or [Settings]:
Specify opposite corner pointer.

3. Press and keep holding down the microphone icon, speak to your microphone equipment, release the microphone icon after finishing the record, then the microphone icon turn out to be a speaker icon.

Play this speaker icon then you can hear the voice you just recorded.

hi Martin, good idea! We will consider that.
BTW, the max length of each voice record is 30 seconds.

Thank you very much for this info! This smartvoice annotation is a great addition to ZWCAD. Now I will be able to communicate with my "voice", my annotations to my AutoCAD clients while on the road!!
