Speech controlled device using Rpi

Mon Oct 03, 2016 3:26 pm

Hello everyone.

I'm currently working on a school project. The idea is using speech recognition to control a media player(play/pause music, search music title, alter volume,etc). Is our idea possible using Rpi? and if it is, what language would be the best to use? or do you know a similar topic or a similar project? Please let me know, Thanks in advance everyone :) :) :)

I haven't had much success with it but others have use Jasper.

https://jasperproject.github.io/

It has a 'spotify' plugin that allows the media play/pause/volume options that you mention.

There is an example of a simple customization that can be made using python
http://jasperproject.github.io/document ... /standard/

You'll need to buy a decent USB microphone.

Despite voice recognition being around for years now, it is still difficult to do it accurately, especially if you are playing music at the same time.

Jasper is really too much heavy. If you just want Speech recognition just use PocketSphinx (used by Jasper)
If you have less than 10 commands use Snowboy (can work without connexion, really light).

For language, it's according to your project, if you want the lightest system, C/C++, else you can find tons of project in python (Jasper/Gladys/Jarvis, ect )

But yes, you need to have your micro far away your speaker for all projects

Try searching "speech recognition linux" on google. You can find some software for speech recognition.

Not sure about the status of bluetooth input for audio, but if you want a wireless microphone, you should probably look at a bluetooth headset of some sort.
