I’ve made some big changes since my last post with voice control with the Raspberry Pi. You can now verify the keyword, change the keyword, change the response, put it in quiet mode to not talk to you, and put it in ignore mode to not try to answer questions not in your config file. The config file format has also been changed from voice=command to voice==command, comments have been allowed in the config file by starting a line with #, and special settings can be done by starting a line with !.
I’ve updated the TTS from espeak to Google’s API since it sounds a lot better.
Finally, I’ve made an update script in the Install folder, that way you don’t have to reinstall every time new changes get pushed out to github. All of the source code is at: https://github.com/StevenHickson/PiAUISuite
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
