This project is about using Raspberry pi with USB microphone and Speaker for interactive answering machine. We are calling it Talking Ganesha. In Hindu Culture , God Ganesha is called as God of Knowledge. We have created this project just to create Talking Ganesha in Ganesh Festival. We have used Google Speech API for converting speech to text, WolfarmAlpha API for answering questions and then eSpeak to speak out the answer return by WolframAlpha.
It is based on initial work done by Mr Dave. His instruction can be found in “http://makezine.com/projects/universal-translator/.
This project was developed with the help of Utsav (my Infosys team mate) and Suhas (Vigyan Ashram Fab Lab Instructor)
