Configuring Voice

IF YOU HAVE NOT CONFIGURED SOUND DO THAT PRIOR TO CONFIGURING SPEECH

If you have trouble setting up speech recognition try heading over to the troubleshooting section. If that doesn't work drop into the discord chat.

Setting up Speech Recognition

The smart mirror uses Sonus with Google Cloud Speech for keyword spotting and recognition. To set that up, you'll need to create a new project in the Cloud Platform Console:

  1. In the Cloud Platform Console, go to the Projects page and select or create a new project.
    GO TO THE PROJECTS PAGE
  2. Enable billing for your project.
    ENABLE BILLING
  3. Enable the Cloud Speech API.
    ENABLE THE API - For more info see Cloud Speech API Pricing (for normal smart mirror usage it will be free)
  4. Create a new JSON service account key and download it to the smart-mirror folder...
    Credentials Guide: On Your Own Server.

When prompted to create a new service account select "Project Owner"

New service account

Keep this information for later. You'll need your projectID and keyfile to configure the smart mirror.

Train your own Keyword

Training your own keyword will drastically increase the accuracy of keyword detection. This will be most accurate if you do this on your Pi using the microphone that you'll be using to trigger the mirror.

From the smart mirror directory run:

npm run train-model

This command launches the snowboy site in embedded chromium.

Note: there is currently a snowboy bug that requires you to click the logo in the top left, login, close the window, and re-run the command

Or, you can train your model here: https://snowboy.kitt.ai/hotword/47

Once trained, download the model and save it to the root of the smart-mirror directory.

Next Step: Run The Mirror For the First Time
