Speech recognition software. (Hello computer)

Postby GeordieJedi » Sun Feb 24, 2013 1:02 am

Hi there.

I'm looking for an article about speech recognition software.
I think it was in the hot picks section.
I have a Feeling that Nick Veitch might have reviewed it ?

I've searched, and searched, and searched for it but cannot find it at all. (I've gone through ALL of my back issues starting at issue 90 (that's about 6yrs worth of magazines !)

In the article it suggested we could help out by making a recording of a given piece of text to help the software get better at understanding different accents.

This is the 3rd time I've tried to look for this.

Does this ring a bell for anyone at all ?

TIA for any help or advice.

I think that was Simon? See latest release announcement with demo video here: http://simon-listens.blogspot.nl/2012/12/simon-040.html.

Ubuntu also is working on speech recognition: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=HfrQrjH3AGw.
