Hello everyone,

I have created Voice-Interactive Checklists (using Windows Speech Recognition and Text-to-Speech facilities) for the Flight1 ATR72-500.

To use these you will need to install the freeware VoiceMacro from
Please see my post in the forum at for instructions on downloading additional Windows TTS voices and directing the audio output to a device of your choice.

The Checklists are based on those published by Flight1 in the AFM as the "Normal Checklist 4-34" for the aircraft.

You can download a folder containing the XML Profiles and Checklists in PDF and XLS format from:

Once you install VoiceMacro on your PC, you will need to import the XML Profile in order to use it. You can also edit it within the VoiceMacro interface or create your own version if you wish.

Some Notes on Use:

(1) You can call for any Checklist at any point in time, for instance if you call "Before Taxi Checklist", that will take you to Item 11, and the software will speak the challenge "Tail Prop" and advance the counter to 12. If you now respond with "Confirm Removed" it will provide the next challenge "Doors" and advance the Item counter to 13. And so on.

(2) Some responses have alternatives. For instance, with Item 22, you could respond with "Fuel Shutoff" or "Feather" or "Auto".

(3) If the software fails to recognize your response, then you could skip to the next challenge by speaking "Next Item". You could also use "This Item", and "Goto Next" and "Goto Previous", but with these alternatives you need to provide the response associated with that Item counter to proceed further.

I would be happy to write up more detailed instructions is there is sufficient interest.
