Makers, developers and hobbyists that have ever wanted to add Raspberry Pi 2 speech recognition functionality to their projects. May be interested in a new tutorial that has been created by Raspberry Pi enthusiasts Wolf Paulus.
Wolf Paulus describes himself as an internationally experienced technologist and innovator, focusing on embedded, mobile, and open-source technologies and has created a fantastic tutorial explaining how to setup a Raspberry Pi 2 speech recognition system.
“This is a lengthy post and very dry, but it provides detailed instructions for how to build and install SphinxBase and PocketSphinx and how to generate a pronunciation dictionary and a language model, all so that speech recognition can be run directly on the Raspberry Pi, without network access.
