    Re: perlbox

    I'm not sure if this will help as I'm currently trying to get perlbox set up myself, but you need sphinx2 on your system as well, and I believe festival needs to be installed too but I am not sure. I hope this helps ^_^.

    Re: perlbox

    Yes, the instructions on the web site show that you need to have all three installed, and I have - it still doesn't work though and Iv given up trying unless someone comes up with something that Iv not tried.

    In the meantime Iv been looking at Julius; Information is there and Iv got this working, and working quite well at recognition in fact, but I'm now trying to pinpoint the reason for a delay between speaking and recognition.

    cheers

    Re: perlbox

    Hi MaxVK, I'm also using Perlbox-voice now, I set it up today and it works like a charm - when I speak REALLY clear, that is. Julius has a way better voice recognition system (follow the readme to test it yourself), just like gnome-voice-control has a more accurate system. Gnome-voice-control uses Pocketsphinx, the follow-up of Sphinx2, and I'm trying to get Perlbox to use the new Pocketsphinx (which I installed) in stead of Sphinx2. No succes, as I can't seem to locate the Pocketsphinx installation on my computer (Ubuntu 8.04). Does anyone know where it's installed? I know, it sounds noobish, but I really can't find it

    I thought that was due of the processing and can't be helped (for now)...? Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm also interested in knowing how to get it to work faster...

    Re: perlbox

    I went through the Gnome-Voice + Sphinx and then Pocketsphinx - Both compiled okay, but neither worked at all well, and if I remember correctly I had the same problem as you - Locating Pocketsphinx once it was installed.

    As for speaking clearly: I never got Gnome-Voice to recognise a single word and I gave up on it pretty quick. Spinx and Perlbox were poor at best, which is why I tried Julius, however, the delay I'm talking about is not something that is normal:

    During a test (as from the readme etc), it will recognised a word, but I have to wait for at least another 3-5 seconds for the (correctly) recognised voice to actually register.

    As it is, with that delay, its useless. I posted a query on this behavior at the VoxForge forum (Here) but so far there has been no reply and I have currently given up on any kind of decent voice recognition/control.

    If I find anything out Ill post again here to let you know, but Id suggest not holding my breath!

    Aha, well with Julius I'm not having that problem, sometimes it even responds too quick - but it still recognizes commands way better than perlbox-voice. Gvc wasn't very succesful with me either: it recognised most of the commands, but the functionality is too limited for me - and changing the source and then compiling keeps giving me errors.
    As for the Pocketsphinx issue: apparently, it's derived from Sphinx3 and not Sphinx2, so you can't just switch Sphinx2 for Pocketsphinx.. The installation directory of Pocketsphinx btw: /usr/local/share. I guess I'll have to learn C or Perl now if I want something changed on Perlbox-voice, or having commands being executed with Julius..
    For the sake of demonstration, I posted a screencast of perlbox-voice on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Q7lEXYqUyk
