LXer: Trigger keyboard and mouse actions with your voice and xdotool

Published at LXer:

Some of us take keyboard and mouse input for granted: You type a character on the keyboard, and it appears in your window, or you type a string of characters, press Return, and some action happens—either locally or at a networked distance. What else is there to expect? But what if you don't have or cannot use a keyboard or mouse, or you want to put a keystroke into one window and have it do something in a different window on a different desktop? Or, perhaps, you want to create a window, resize it, pull up a browser in that window, navigate to a URL, then tab through a number of links in the web page and click one—all without a keyboard or mouse, using your voice through a speech recognizer. This approach calls for keyboard and mouse emulation.
