Re: Custom Commands using Assistant_library ?

Hi, The easy answer is copy the code from this post https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=114&t=196353 As you can see that code merges two demos together. Your probably missing one of the files referred to assistant_library_with_local_commands_demo.py Assuming that isn't in your src fol...

Re: main.py file doesnt exist?

@LegoDude, We might have just cross posted - I rewrote my post. I am sure you could lash something together to achieve voice activation by using the hotword Javis - but not without effort.

Re: main.py file doesnt exist?

Can I perhaps set the record straight as far as my recollection of events goes? Originally the google assistant could only be triggered by either 1. Pressing the button on the top of the box; or 2. Clapping When a python version of the assistant was produced some guys wrote some code that allowed th...

Re: Posh TTS - change to enGB

If you ask the Google Assistant a question which is answered by Google's servers (such as what's the weather) the answer is given to you in a pleasant american female accent. If you implement a local action that says something - the answer (which you have programmed) is not provided by Google's serv...

Re: main.py file doesnt exist?

Simple answer - the hotword isn't configurable - your stuck with ok google or hey google. Complex answer - using the previous version of the software some people did stuff to make it work with Snowboy that allowed you to choose your hotword. No idea whether the latter is possible with this version b...

Re: AIY Kit, works, but not from within Python Idle

Few things are impossible - but It isn't meant to work with the Idle environment.
It has it's own software virtual environment which you invoke when you click on Start dev terminal.

Click on the dev start terminal and type " git checkout voicekit "eg (pi@raspberrypi:~/AIY-voice-kit-python $ git checkout voicekit ), 2. Then type " git pull origin voicekit " eg (pi@raspb...

We used to be able to set this in the old version of the software using a configuration file. The setting is only relevant if your making the AIY say something using a local command.

If your on Voicekit and are using the TTS to say responses you may be wondering how to set the TTS voice to en-GB? (in the master branch you set the language in the config file). As a default it is set to en-US. Those good folk at Google advise that you can set the default language to en-GB at the b...
