Does Maestro or SmartSDR have a Voice Memory Keyer?

I am going to start doing more SSB. I googled and looked in the user manual, but I can't find if SmartSDR or the Maestro has a Voice Memory Keyer, for calling CQ for example?

If it does not, what is the most popular voice memory keyer that people are using?

    Hi Neal

    It doesn't have an internal voice keyer.

    VoiceKeyers are generally built into the Contest logging software such as N1MM.

    Hi Neal, there is no built in voice keyer but K9DUR has one that is specifically made for SmartSDR.

    I have never used it, so I can't attest to its usability, but other K9DUR utilities that I have used are top notch.

    Yes, SmartSDR for Mac has a Voice Keyer built directly into the program. Works really well.

    Probably due for Ver 4 of SSDR😶

    While we have not yet fully sketched out what V4 might look like, a voice keyer was not high on the list.

    However, always subject to change. I will pass on the request just in case it can easily be scooped into the design.

    It would be nice if there was a way to execute voice keying macros via the Maestro .
