Go to treycent, make sure your cursor is showing in the search box, then say "go to screen monkey demonstration". Choose whether or not you want it to open in a new window, then click submit. My Screen Monkey Part 1 video will open for viewing. Links to virtually any kind of web content can be created for use in treycent, and you can share your set of voice commands with anyone via email. Multiple voice commands can be created for the same link, and voice commands can be changed simply by changing the URL for the command. The commands can consist of any wording you want from short and easy to remember to long and more specific.
According to Jones, the app is useful for educators who teach the same content. One person can create the links and share them. Students can go to treycent and speak the commands to view the content. Besides that, it's fun! I can see it being more engaging to students, especially in the elementary grades. It would be very convenient to use with students who don't yet know how to type (or can't type due to a disability). Also, because the user has to know what the voice commands are, security is built right into the app.

An android app is available in the Google play Store.
In addition to working on Chrome, the web app (treycent.com) will also work on any mobile browser. It will also work on other desktop browsers but, since they do not accept voice input, users will have to type in their commands.
3. A Chrome extension makes a lot a sense but is not currently scheduled for development.
4. To share User A enters the name and email address of someone that they wish to share with (User B). From then on, User B can use all of the voice commands entered by User A. In this way an entire team (e.g. 4th grade teacher) could use the same voice commands to access the same content. Users can override voice commands if they choose. So if User A has a voice command "Take me to the class web page" that links to User A's classroom web page, User B could add their own voice command exactly the same but it could instead links to User B's classroom web page. So, in a team setting one teacher could take the lead to set things up initially but then each team member could customize it for their own use.
As of right now, treycent can be used with the Chrome browser on any desktop or laptop computer, or with a mobile device; there is nothing to download or install.
