Advise for a voice assistant
Have been looking around for a suitable voice command for my MM since a while but couldn’t get to pick up one that does/accept some pre-req. as:
a bit of privacy as wake up hotword &
interaction with MM &
one that works well, is reliable and not a pain to install
I have gone trough kalliope, open jarvis, thinking about Mk2assistant bur not tried yet…
any sharing/experience would be much appreciated!
by the way what do you guys use?
I would definitely recommend Mk2assistant + Hotword module.
@ejay-ibm Yeah, works perfect if you keep to the ‘correct’ hardware and OS like Pi or ATB.
@THeStigh Indeed, using it on a Rasp 3 b+ fully up to date.
I was able to run MK2assistant but never managed to install Hotword.
Is there a tutorial out there which shows me how to do it, absolute beginner style?
I think the Readme here : https://github.com/eouia/MMM-Hotword/
is pretty clear, that is what I followed and I have it working directly.
check out the Tip section to include hotword in the mk2 assistant and you should be good.
If you run into issue you can share your config file and I can have a look .
all right, thanks, I will try it again but usually it failed when trying to install snowboy
Give me a telegram When you are stuck on. Telegram:@eouia
What hardware and OS are you using ?
I am using a Raspi 3 B+ and latest release of Stretch and MagicMirror.
I am a newbie and though I tried all the troubleshooting tipps described I wasn’t able to install Hotword and snowboy.
