    Engine Plugin
    This product contains a code plugin, complete with pre-built binaries and all its source code that integrates with Unreal Engine, which can be installed to an engine version of your choice then enabled on a per-project basis.

Add voice input to your game project with ease. This plugin gives you full control over voicedata and exposes the recorded voice data as an compressed byte array blueprints. This way you can utilize the data in the way you want. Add channels to your game (vicinity, radio-controlled, team channels etc), optimize network traffic by only sending data to the required clients or even implement a data stream to an extra server - you are in charge, time to be creative.

Technical Details

Features:

- No engine modifications, pure Plugin.

- No C++ knowledge needed, all custom C++ functions are exposed to Blueprints.

- VoiceAudioComponent that can be attached to any actor.

- Lightweight Networking, will only transmit VoiceData to players that are in hearing range. (No multi-casting to just everyone on the server)

- Support for multiple VoiceChat Channels. (Global, Spatialized/Local area, Clan/Party only)

- Total control in Blueprints over the VoiceChat Data. (Could support recording, later playback, further altering of VoiceData with Audio DSP - it is really up to you what to do with the data.)


Technical Details:

Copy the plugin into your project's plugin folder and you'll have 2 new components exposed in your Blueprints. The VoiceChatComponent for Input and the VoiceAudioPlayback Component for Output. (See screenshots)


Network Replicated: A byte array of the voice data is exposed to blueprints, allowing you to easily replicate the data.
