Are there any plans to integrate Siri shortcuts in the iOS version of accordance?  Thanks!

We're currently looking into Siri Shortcuts for the best way to integrate them into the app.

 

As usual, though, we won't make any promises about what or when new features will be adopted :)

Well if I can give you some suggestions...

 

1.  BE able to shortcuts for Greek, Hebrew and English Versions

2.  Be able to split the screen with different texts

3.  Be able to do the boolean searches

 

This would be AMAZING to implement

There is definitely promise here.

 

SpiritAndFire44, some of your suggestions don't make sense to me. It sounds like you're wanting to use Shortcuts to add voice commands withing the Accordance App. I would point out that this is not what Siri Shortcuts is designed for. 

 

The most basic to start with would be would be a global voice verse lookup.

 

A command for "Look up verse"

   to which the "Dictate text" shortcut block would then listen for the verse range for you to dictate.

 

 

FYI, since there is the "Pass URL to Next" shortcut, this is already close to possible.

Thanks for the valuable information Joe.  I confess I am not an expert on shortcuts.  I will investigate this.  I have however, seen some apps that have Siri shortcuts built into them already.  It is this that I was thinking of when for instance, I would select which texts would be searched, and which texts the split screen would confess.  Does this make any sense or am I missing something?

Joe's suggestion of dictating a verse look-up would be amazing.

Just to clarify, you can already basically accomplish a global Siri verse lookup. The problem is that you have to spell out the reference: “romans twelve colon three hyphen seven”. 

 
 
We could actually build an imperfect shortcut that parsed a normal string like “romans twelve three to seven” and formatted it properly into "Romans 12:3-7" to send to Accordance. It'd be best if it was done inside of Accordance's bundle so they had control of the parsing.

I currently have a Siri Shortcut working, but it’s based off of the Accordance URL scheme (of which I cannot find any documentation online); and it only works if you give it a specific verse (Mark 5:3). I can’t figure out the syntax for getting it to recognize a series of verses (eg. Mark 5:3-6).

Oh, it should be noted that it inputs whatever is on your clipboard. If you know your way around Shortcuts, you can modify it to take text other ways.

You can give it a spin here: https://www.icloud.c...4d3f5af739ee254

Rick, things have improved since your last Workflow, in that Shortcuts can now prompt to dictate text. See my example video.

For sure, voice is increasingly the primary input for our devices.

 

That said, doesn't your previous Workflow do a REgEx search a string for verse references on the clipboard? Are you saying it only finds Mark 5:3 right now but not 5:3-6? That wouldn't be difficult to improve. LOTS of stackoverlow threads about RegEx verse range matching.

Thanks, Joe. My shortcut is just two actions: “URL” and “Open URLs”. Here is the link to my current version of this Shortcut that you can check out: https://www.icloud.c...3637620ebd899f4

Do you mind sharing a link to yours?

I’m personally not a fan of voice input since I do a lot of work from coffee shops. Ideally, I want to pass text (specifically, a Bible reference) to Shortcuts and have it open in Accordance.
