Texting while driving

    So I was racing earlier and everyone was texting while racing. I don't understand this. How do they do it? Is there a third-party app where you can convert voice to text or something? When I try doing it I always lose my braking points or steer too late. I don't understand how people do this right before a corner and still manage not to lose focus. Am I missing something?

    Paul Ricard main straight is just long enough to Alt-Tab from the game and check Discord or something , watch some YT video, turn on Spotify, make some replies on Kunos formus, and then Alt-Tab back to the game :p:p

    You can set up macros so you only have to press 1 key and it will write something for you.

    How do you set up macros? Is it an ingame feature?

    Presumably most of those macros just stick in things like 'ffs' 'idiot' 'n00b' & maybe 'sry'. That's pretty much all I see in the chat window during races.

    And yes, I was wondering how they do it as well :D

    VoiceAttack works very well for this; I've been using it for years.

    I was actually thinking in doing something like using the buttons of my mouse as macros to say "thanks" or "I'll let you pass on the straight, don't ruin my race". It would be nice to have this possibility as an In-Game feature.

    I just hold the steering wheel with my mouth and lean a bit forward to reach the keyboard where we can have some jokes with the bois while racing at 200+ kph. Works fine for me.

    I just used my Corsair keyboard software to set that up. It was just for testing purposes tho, never actually used it :p
    If you don't have software for your keyboard that allows to make macros, use google to find a macro recorder.

    Typing just isn't an option for me in VR. If I tried it would look like this "fgre gugfef"

    That's why I use VoiceAttack. Takes just a few minutes to set up, but allows you to set up and execute pre-written chat phrases just by speaking them, or even make vehicle setup or pitstop changes if you really get into using it. Quite a godsend in VR.
     
  21. +1 for VoiceAttack, installed 3 days ago and setup macro for chat to use with button box or voice recognition, work very well.
