Try it right now... say Show my report.

To get this simple example working, in the editor for this post, I simply inserted 2 HTML cards:

<script src="//"></script>

    #myreport {
        -webkit-box-shadow:2px 1px 6px 1px #555;
        box-shadow:2px 1px 6px 1px #555
    .hide {

  "use strict";

  // first we make sure annyang started succesfully
  if (annyang) {

    // define the functions our commands will run.
    var showMy = function(type) {
        bottom: '-100px'
        bottom: '-600px'

    // define our commands.
    var commands = {
      'show :type report':    showMy,

    // Add voice commands to respond to

    // Start listening.
  } else {
    $(document).ready(function() {

  var scrollTo = function(identifier, speed) {
    $('html, body').animate({
        scrollTop: $(identifier).offset().top
    }, speed || 1000);
