I am also using Kaldi and PicoTTS (it’s OK, but compared to Google or Amazon it is still really bad ).
Wake word is an issue. I am currently using porcupine with one of the universal models. Problem: I don’t really like the wake word choices. All feel weird to say for native german speaker and not easy to pronounce without some German accent. I am currently using “pico voice” as wake word. It recognizes me most of the time and very few false activates.
I am thinking about making my only custom wake word with precise. How did you do it (source of the training data?)
@DanielW If you want more information on training a custom wakeword model with mycroft precise take a look at this Mycroft Precise Model .
I followed the instructions from mycroft for training your own wakeword model.
I use the PSeye cam on the big Raspi which is working great. Later I want to try my zeros with a two mic platine attached (may check for the name later) which was working great with snips before. I think those satellites have an LED I might start.
I found the respeakers just to expensive when creating multiple devices. Mist are even placed where they are invisible
Hi @koan !! Could you please provide instructions for building/installing that MaryTTS voice dfki-prudence-hsmm? I took a very quick look at the MaryTTS github, and am not certain where to get started. Will I need to install a full MaryTTS environment on my Raspbian OS? Thank you in advance for EVERYTHING you do for this Rhasspy community.
Hmm if my audio settings were the issue, I would think that espeak should also exhibit the same issue, but it does not. Espeak is the only TTS that works (meaning I can hear the words, and not something that sounds like its fast-forwarded). Can anyone point me to some docs to help me start diagnosing this issue. I’m not really sure what keywords to search for.
