This is my first post about “voice control” for the PS3.
Voice control is only #4 in my todo list, but as I’m curious, I wanted to know how hard this stuff is, and I decided to begin searching for Linux tools.
Speech recognition is a wider area than voice control. Considering what I want to do (voice control), it is a hard and wasteful thing (cpu consumption, complexity).
There are many projects that allow voice control stuffs. I will only focus on projects that are widely used/tested and still developed/maintained.
Project to watch regularly:
- SpeechControl Ubuntu project: hopefully providing some easy to install tools in a near future.
Some projects that are probably good enough to make a “hackish” proof-of-concept:
- Simon: the wiki tells the installation is easy, but this sadly seems to be broken with Ubuntu Maverick. I need to work more on that cross-platform (Linux+Windows) solution.
- Julius+Voxforge: seems to be very easy to install, but no GUI.
- Pocketsphinx: a recognizer library written in C.
To be continued!
