This invention allows the switching between two or more Workstations connected to the same monitor using a vocal command instead of a combination of keys or a button pressing. The Workstations Operating Systems could be different.
There are two different solutions to give the possibility to switch from one Workstation to another one, connected to the same monitor, using special words like "switch A" or "switch B" etc...:
1) install, into the switch, a microphone which, once the voice has been captured, sends the right impulse to enable the desired Workstation view on the monitor and the related commands and disabling the other ones;
2) re-use the voice recognition software which already exists and change the configuration settings, so that there is a matching between the aforementioned words and the key combination "Ctrl-Ctrl-A-Enter" or "Ctrl-Ctrl-B-Enter" etc...
