Like some may know, I do my tests with snowboy, which works really great but will be turn down end of 2020. Of course it will still works, but we won’t be able to generate new custom wakewords.
I’m looking for an engine with three different custom wakewords. One per family member so I can know who is asking something.
Right now we have such options : https://rhasspy.readthedocs.io/en/latest/wake-word/
- snowboy : free, offline, custom wakeword. But EOL !
- porcupine : must redo custom wakeword every 30 days
- pocketsphinx : doesn’t seems very reliable
- precise : seems working nice. training custom wakeword seems hard though, and still don’t run on pi0 ?
Actually I still run my snips system in production (Pi3 master and Pi0 satellites). The only thing keeping me from running rhasspy in production is akeword engine. Snips one works great with three custom wakewords (snowboy seems even a bit better).
So actually, what is the consensus regarding wakeword engine for rhasspy with several custom wakewords ?
Is there anything new on this side ? Or something to come ?
