You may be pleased to hear that I am moving onto language processing
Your relentless tenacity on the subject since 2009 has earned you the benefit of the doubt.I hope you will make good progress with your language processing program. Is it your goal to have conversations with your computer? This will be mind blowing.

Thanks Edja. To program telephone based operators that say different things in different conversations, and can follow scripts appropriate in subject and respond yes and no I believe I can do. That will probably be a first project on language processing for me.

I can do processing of received input as text strings and creating text strings for output to text-to-speech. I think that is possible for programming to enable the computer to talk in specialised subject areas. A fluent speaking computer on any known subject like a human adult would need many years education and work I expect! I would have thought it is a lot of work, but acheivable.

Hi it's now July, and my program is still working as described, every run.

Thank you very much for your GUI code, Svein. Is it possible to lock the window since I have nothing to display in the window that can be opened. It is just a simple Menu with Start, Stop, About and Exit for this version 1.20.

I posted this onto Youtube recently. If you would like to hear the computer reacting to the music, I suggest starting at 7m35s and listening to the end (11m55s): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9cxybewrIw
