@strawberry-3.141 you are right, I also struggled to find a accurate “offline” sst solution. Like mentioned in the article I don’t intend to use a “public cloud” solution for STT - due to this I train currently a context aware, tensorflow based “private cloud” STT solution. But it turned out that this is really time consuming… until this is complete I use googles STT API.
This project is for me just a research project to get a better understanding of AI and cloud services and how to deal with the challenges. The intention to post it here was to support Chris with a impression of the used glass
This design is easily one of the most impressive I’ve seen. How did you get the monitor to affix to the glass? Just by using electrical tape to bind it to the construction paper on the back? Does it hold soundly?
Is there anything to the connection of the RPI > Controller > Laptop monitor or is it straightforward?
@Sean Well, to be honest, my wife deserves all the credit: I was desperate after 2 weeks of trying to do my own frame, including butchering 3 RiBBAs (just to get the glass) and my wife just said: hey, you already have two unused frames, why you just don’t glue them back to back? MIND BLOWN
I got mine off Amazon, but also lots available on ebay. Just search for “HDMI LCD Controller Board” there are lots of different options. I found one that just had the single hdmi output instead of multiple outputs to save space.
You may need to email some of the sellers to check the board is compatible with your LCD panel. If it’s not they may suggest a similar one.
Best option is to look at the part number on the back of the LCD panel, my screen was out of a Sony Vaio laptop but was a Hitachi LCD panel, I searched for "HDMI LCD Controller Board + ‘LCD part number’ " and that came up with a couple of results, make sure the resolution is correct as well.
