  • Publication number: 20210012771
    Abstract: A voice-operated system includes a processing device, and a controller that communicates with the processing device. The processing device includes a first processor to perform: displaying, on an operating panel, an operation screen for instructing a process for execution by the processing device, to receive user's instruction; and executing a process corresponding to a command received from the controller. The controller includes a second processor to perform: generating the command for the processing device based on an input voice; and transmitting the command to the processing device. The generation of the command includes, when the voice instructs the processing device to execute a first process, generating a first command for instructing the operating panel to display the operation screen for instructing execution of the first process; and when the voice instructs the processing device to execute a second process, generating a second command for instructing execution of the second process.
