Feature Request- Voice Command/Control
« on: April 06, 2008, 01:17:14 am »
Might have been asked before (although i didnt see it when i searched). Has anybody ever considered working on a voice command module for LinuxMCE.
Maybe using Perlbox or similar? It would be nice to add voice control to my current set up :)

Hi

Its discussed a little here http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=3929.0, http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=1502.0 and here http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=225.0. (I searched for 'speech')

I also think I remember the pluto guys discussing this a long time ago, but the found out it was not stable enough.

Not sure if anyone have made any progress on the issue though.

Hi,

I remember that Aaron once said, that they tested one of commercial solutions and it wasn't accurate enough. But there is no drawback of trying to do something useful in this field....

As you probably know, the heart of voice communications under LMCE is Asterisk - and there exists LumenVox speech recognition engine for it.

You just make it answer certain local extension and then when you want to recognize speech just make a call to that local number (you can do it even from MDs, since they have embedded softphones embedded)...

The well known open source solution for speech recognition is Sphinx family of projects, there is also interesting project Simon listens....

HTH,

Thanks in advance,

Simon may listen..
but he only talks German!
and sadly I don't understand that :)
I remember Orange UK used "wildfire" and it seemed to work remarkably well!
as processing power increases so will voice recognition reliability!
something else to look forwards to!
