MMM-AssistantMk2 Mic/Hotword Sensitivity
Does anyone have any recommendations on mic sensitivity improvements to either MMM-AssistantMk2 module or hotword detection in general? I have everything working beautifully, but MMM-AssistantMk2 tends to open the mic NOT only when the hotword is detected, but…pretty much any time anyone is speaking. This typically results in the module opening YouTube and playing a random r&b video (which I also can’t figure out how to stop without killing the whole mirror application).
I have the same issue with stopping the youtube video…
hotword detection is not so precise especially when you use universal models. sometimes similar(or even not similar at all) pattern is detected as hotword.
so i dont recommend to use ‘pauseOnYoutube:false’, because output from youtube often be caught as hotword.
In real AI speakers, they solve this issue with arrayed far-away speakers. it could distinguish near “speaker-output” and far “user-spoken”, but we don’t have.
i always have to mute the mirror (or TV) when audio is playing, even with my true Echo.
@sdetweil I am very jealous!! I have being working on this module for weeks now. I have finally got to this stage…
I get Chimes when MM first start up.
Its just now I can’t get to prove that my mic is working or get Assistant to output any sound or answer/recognise any voice commands. Clearly you got to this stage. What would you advise my next actions be please?
Sounds like youre doing a great job anyway. Would love to see it.
