[size="3"]Master the Thu'um using your PC Mic![/size]

You are Dragonborn, use shouts in REAL LIFE and see them faithfully blast through the screen towards your enemies. Learn the ancient tongue of the Dovah as you play and always be ready for whatever is beyond the next door and over the next horizon.

As you use hone your Thu'um you will see a change in the way you play Skyrim. You will use shouts more often in more varied ways and feel the rush of SHOUTING your opponents off cliff faces, whispering ZUL and throwing your voice, deceiving foes from the shadows.

Roar out TIID! and watch as time slows to a crawl around you. As wild creatures attack let out a mighty RAAS! and they will fight by your side..

This is Thu'uMic.

And your long path along the true Way of the Voice...

Has only just begun...


**NOTE this is the last version before v2 that will be a fresher look, new features and bug fixes. stay tuned**

Known issues in version 1.9:
- Horse call and NPC controls not working. to be fixed by probably adding support for better horse/follower mods.

Special Powers
Racials = Power of Blood
Werewolf Transform = Hircine Grant me Power! (Pronounced Her Seen)

note: will most likely be removed somewhat in 2.0

Companion Commands
Activating Commands =
Follow Me = Follow me...
Wait There = Wait there (These two commands COMPLETELY disable ai for this user so note... they probably won't follow you through zones and won't fight. until you once again use "Follow Me"... use extremely sparingly)
Activate that for me= Start Favor
Never Mind= Stop Favor
Trade with me = Companion Inventory Menu

Always remember to tell your Companion to Follow you after you stop them and want them to return to you.
Or else they will just stand there... in mid pose... doing nothing. (This was a complete hack for this particular command)

How to install XP version of Thuumic Shouter.
(64-bit May not work as of now, or it may...)


(1 From Optional Downloads section of this mod
Download the File XPPREREQUESITES.ZIP. Inside this file are two Installers


Run them both.
(Note you may to run them in admin mode)
This may require a reboot to be successful.
Go to Control Panel > Speech
If Control Panel > Speech Does not exist then SAPIREDIST.msi did not install properly and Thuumic Shouter will not work!
Verify All settings for your Microphone is correct

Optional but highly reccomended. (Run the WIndows Speech training in Control Panel > Speech)

Skip to this step if you are just Updating ThuumicShouter on your XP Operating System
(2 Download ThuumicShouterSetupXp.exe From Downloads section of this mod

(3 Run Above program
(4 Select Install Options
(5 Go to settings and verify that Shout Hotkey is the same as your skyrim Shout Hotkey (On new installs)
(6 start shouting

Some shouts just have horrible recognition at the moment, this is a deficiency in XP's Forced Sapi 5.1 vs 7's 5.4 version. (There is no way to upgrade XP to 5.4)
Shout recognition may increase with more training in Control Panel > Speech, as well as adjustable grammar to be added.
It also seems shouts take a little while longer to recognize, you might have to adjust play style accordingly
There is no alternate grammar or cutsom horse name for xp at this time.

I'm putting this here because it seems to be a good fix for a major problem.
If shouts don't switch for you in game, try running thuumic in compatability mode for Windows XP SP 3


Heres what some of Thu'uMic's other users have to say!

"My throat hurts now it's too fun!"
- SASAlbertini

"I turned the Shout Recovery time to zero for use with this mod, jacked the difficulty up to the max, now when I fight a dragon it's like I'm having a deadly verbal debate! ... I've also found myself saying the Shouts differently, Fus Roh Dah is a full-throated yell, Lass is a hiss, Wuld Nah Kest is said in a hurry, and Krii Lun Aus is a low, evil-sounding whisper.
100% Endorsed."
- Ess Gee Dee

"easily the most fun mod I've played since I started downloading mods on day one. Very impressive and fully endorsed. "

"I almost never used shouts at all until I found this, its really changed the way I play. I'll fus ro dah one guy off a cliff and then a few seconds later I'll wuld over to the guy shooting arrows at me and smash his face in too. Soooo satisfying."
- Kaiser_Soze

Great article on GEEK.COM! read it here!
Thu'uMic (and its creator) received VERY flattering nod from here!
IGN have given Thu'uMic a shout-out!! (sorry couldn't resist) See what the FUS is about! (Ok I'll stop)

Beautiful Skyrim Review!

jump to 7:45 for the review :D

V0.2.2 with reduced lag (recorded off screen to give true lag times)

V1.6 Free Thuumic Shouter By Gigify


- I have a non-english version of Window's Speech or Keyboard Layout and it won't work for me, what should I do?

Some versions of Windows Vista/7 aren't provided with SAPI by default. An example are the Italian and Danish version. Contrary to what is written on the FAQ it's not related to the Keyboard layout, aka switching keyboard layout to English US won't solve the issue. As there seems not to be a self-installing package for SAPI alone, the only workaround I found is switching Windows' system language to English. Normally that would be allowed only to the Ultimate edition of W7/V, but there's a freeware called Vistalizator that works for both and allows an easy and non-invasive installation of MUIs (language packs). Of course it's always possible to revert back to the original language. Here's the link:

Switching to English will make Speech Recognition Options from the Control Panel available.

I'll test it more and check if reverting back to the original language while keeping English installed will also retain SAPI.
EDIT: Hell it works! Reverting back to the original language (in my case, Italian) disables SRO from the Control Panel but keeps SAPI working (and VAC too). Don't know if enabling English and setting up the Microphone from SRO at least once is required or if you just need to install the MUI and then reboot however.

Vistalizator not working with windows 7 SP1? try this

Thanks to Hoptic for the info!


- The above method does not work for me, or I really don't want to change my language what do i do?

From ecli7pse

1) I have a german Win 7 edition with Speech Recognition enabled, but this didn't work because it is the german Speech Recognition version. So i tried your link in the FAQ ( ) , but this only works for Win 7 without ServicePack. I googled a bit and found this tutorial ( ) and i worked for me. It is in german so use google tranlator or something else. I even did not have to activate English language, i just installed it in the way it is descibed there.

- It worked at first, but stopped what can I do? or It's not working at all and I meet all the requirements.


I hope this may help others:

I am using Windows 7 and Thu'uMic was recognizing my shouts and working in game at first, but after a short time it would stop reacting to my voice.

I looked in the Windows event viewer by typing "eventvwr.msc" into the Start Menu's Run... command box. In the event viewer, under "Windows Logs", I clicked on "Applications" and then looked at the list. The most recent entries were "Information", "Event 1001, Windows Error Reporting", and when I selected them, the details below looked like this:

Fault bucket , type 0
Event Name: PCA2
Response: Not available
Cab Id: 0

Problem signature:
P1: ThuumicShouter.exe

I Googled the PCA2 error and found a post somewhere that said it was a Program Compatibility error, and suggested setting the Compatibility mode to Windows XP SP3. So, I right-clicked on the Thu'uMic EXE, selected Properties, Compatibility tab, and enabled that mode.

And so far... it seems to be working.

- I get an error on starting Thuumic Shouter that won't allow it to open or I can not correctly install .net 4.0

Is there an easy way to change all of my key settings?
SkyrimKeyHelper.exe Was not written by us but is wonderful for this.


Thuumic Recognizes my shout but in Skyrim only the shout I have equipped works.
1- Increase general delay time in Thuumic Settings
2- If you use Nexus Mod Manager to load the game, it may break thuumic.
3- Run thuumic AND skyrim in administrator mode.
4- Run Skyrim in windowed mode
5- Run thuumic in windows xp sp3 Compatability mode
6- Change hotkey to trigger shout switching in Thuumic Settings.
7- Uninstall/Reinstall Thuumic using the uninstall program in Control panel > Programs and features
7- Try running the Prerequesites program in the optional File downloads.


Personal thanks to PsychoHampster from Azuril, dude - the work you have done to bring this out of VAC and give us a truly free program is invaluable. Can't thank you enough mate.
