A few can be found on this page, does not seem to be all that good though
http://www.linux.com/base/ldp/howto/Spe ... tware.html
This looks more promising

This one perhaps
http://julius.sourceforge.jp/en_index.php
For some reason I don't understand there's a lot of old hits when you search for voice recognition linux
Is there nod development going on?

Install error Sphinx 4

Postby Branta » Sun Feb 01, 2009 8:27 pm

Mint 6

Husse, thank you for your interest and suggestion.

I did

Code: Select all

apt-get install sun-java6-jdk

then

Code: Select all

jar xvf sphinx4-1.0beta-bin.zip

From the /Sphinx4/lib I did

Code: Select all

sh ./jsapi.sh

I get this error:

Code: Select all

./jsapi.sh: 1428: uudecode: not found

An ls in the active directory lists among others

Code: Select all

jsapi.sh

Is there something I need to install?

Seems you need uudecode :)
It's found in sharutils which is in the repos
My guess....

Check out this project. I don't know anything about it or where I heard about so YMMV.

http://www.voxforge.org/home
The instructions suggested Windows XP or better, so I installed Linux :)

Husse,

That worked and I was able to get the demo test to recognize the suggested, "hello Paul," "Hello Rita," and so forth.

From your link's for which I am very grateful, and my own research, it appears there is no active project for voice recognition. The newest dates were 2004 on most of what I found.

I really would like a GUI voice recognition system.

Again, Husse, thank you for your interest and help.

I have a feeling that voice recognition is a no go at the moment, but I may be wrong...

This is an old thread, but there has been some development in the field of voice recognition in the past four years. I'm going to try installing Palaver on Mint 14 using the instructions from this article and this youtube video. I'll be back to report my results.

OK, Palaver still has a way to go... and I have a bit to learn about setting up my own dictionary of commands... but it works GREAT. I had to install some of the "components" a couple of times to get them to actually install. Not sure why. Anyway, this has a lot of promise and is under active development. We're getting close.

One more reference.
http://cmusphinx.sourceforge.net/2010/03/pocketsphinx-0-6-release/

CMUSphinx/PocketSphinx is already in the Ubuntu, Mint and Fedora repositories (phython-pocketsphinx). The link above is for the release announcement for version 0.6 back in 2010. They are currently on 0.8 which looks like it will be in the repos for Ubuntu's first release of 2013.
