Speech recognition

Help and support with Ultimate Edition 3.5


Speech recognition

Postby Acaster » Tue Aug 27, 2013 1:42 am

I recently injured an arm and can only type with one hand so I had the idea of using speech recognition software for a while. Was I surprised to find it already installed in bill gates' legacy under Control Panel > Ease of Access and it works OK except when it's raining as I have just discovered ( my den has a tin roof ) The first line of this post came up as irvvi nvv
Thing is I would like to do speech recognition under Ultimate Edition but google only seems to list back ends of the 'write your own front' end variety for open source and there isn't any speech recognition mentioned on the Ultimate Edition menus.

Anybody know how to do speech recognition in Ultimate Edition 3.5 or 3.5.1 ?

Sorry to hear that. Hope it gets better...

Palaver..the only WORKING speech recognition for Linux. There are a few others, but they have not been released yet. I am working on a front myself. Will be a while before I can release it.

So, if you want to try Palaver.
1.
Code: Select all
git clone https://github.com/JamezQ/Palaver.git

2.
Code: Select all
cd Palaver

3.
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install sox python-argparse libsox-fmt-mp3 mutt wget espeak xvkbd xautomation

4.
Code: Select all
./setup

If it runs successfully you will get this message:
Done, you will have to setup the hotkey yourself.

Now we need to configure the hotkey which will invoke the voice recognition. Assuming you are using the Unity shell, open the dash and type "keyboard". You can also access keyboard from 'System Settings'. Now go to the 'shortcut' tab and go to "Custom Shortcuts". Click on the + symbol to add a hotkey.

Name it whatever you want, and for the command give the complete path of hokey script. In my case it was:

/home/$USER/Palaver

Click "Apply". Now you have to configure keys to trigger this script. Click on the 'Disabled' and it will to enter input shortcut. I tested many combinations but it worked on few so I used Ctrl+L.

Now when you click Ctrl+L key it will trigger the microphone and you can start speaking when it turns green.

Please keep in mind that it's in early stage of development.

Okay...
It took me awhile what with messing about with microphones ( they ain't all up to sctratch ) and such but I have to reluctantly admit that, on this occasion, and for the first time this year, in my experience, bill gates legacy won out over Linux.
I am able to dictate at my normal typing speed using Dragon naturally under bgl whereas with palaver I have to talk at it in a gravelly American accent to get any kind of response.
Nobody's perfect.
Thanks for all the input people
