0.3-alpha-1:
Changelog: http://sourceforge.net/projects/speech2text/files/simon/0.3-alpha-1/Changelog/view

Warning: You might need experimental packages from your distribution as this release requires KDE 4.4!

0.2:
Fixed the remaining known issues and added the manual.


0.2 rc1:

We've done a _lot_ of testing. Basically we tested every feature as well as we could and came up with a lot of bugs.
Well those are all fixed now :)

There are two issues left which are sadly quite bad: One crashes simon and one causes the recognition to stop without any error or warning what so ever. Both only get triggered when re-initializing the recognition and are related to Juliuslib. I hope to get that fixed soon.

But all in all, simon should be quite stable and ready for some productive use!

0.2-beta-3:

Introducing three new command plug-ins:
* List
A list of other simon commands; The user selects one of the commands using numbers 1-9; If there are more than 8 commands in the list, the list only goes from 1-8 and 0 and 9 are can be used for scrolling (0: up; 9: down).

* Composite
Combines other simon commands in one "Macro". The user can even define delays between the invocation of two sub-commands.

* Input Numbers
A calculator-like front-end to input long numbers with ease.

Also, the desktop-grid can now be completely controlled by voice.

The recording widget now displays the current "loudness" of the input while recording. This should help to weed out not working / badly configured microphones.

Updated Julius to the current SVN versions with minimal modifications.

Bug-Fixing all around - especially related to sound and recognition.

0.2-beta-2:

Fixed various bugs related to the grammar which caused it to not get saved most of the time. It is now again possible to add multiple words at once without losing samples. All input files to the importing functions (dictionary, texts, etc.) are now checked if they exist before the importing begins. simon now compiles also on Ubuntu Hardy Heron (KDE 4.0) Removed KDE-Includes when building julius (a lot of warnings due to strict compiler flags) All libraries are now installed correctly.

0.2-beta-1:

Bugfixing all around.
Fixed a whole lot of libjulius / sent related issues regarding stopping / starting of the sound-stream.
Fixing the Windows Version.
Introducing CPack support for quick package building.


0.2-alpha-1:

Porting to KDE 4
Removed Juliusd in favor of simond:
* Network audio streaming
* Recognition and model compilation on server
* No processor intensive calculations on the client (opens the door to development of solutions for embedded devices, etc.)
Revised and greatly improved command plugin architecture
* Individual triggers per plugin
* Runtime module loading / unloading (even the configuration of the modules)
Introduction of ksimond - a frontend to the simond recognition server
And much, much more...


0.1-alpha-2.1:

A lot of compatibility fixes.


0.1-alpha-2:

Too many changes to count - here the most important ones:

Fixed about a gazillion bugs.
Streamlined the interface.
The command-system has been completely rewritten.
A few performance optimizations.
Introduced a structured build-system.
Switched to portaudio backend for more compatibility.
Did I mention fixing bugs? Lots of them...

0.1-alpha-1:
Initial release

Well I was playing around trying to configure simon today and I got juliusd to add a user to a db(sqlite)! I then brought up simon and set it to the localhost:4444 put in the username and password I had created and pressed connect. And juliesd promptly crashed. I don`t really have any idea how to fix that as the only output juliesd gives me is "./juliusd
Segmentation fault" What should I do to try and figure out what the problem is?

Thanks!

I think I may have found the problem. The Julies configuration has a tab named Julius with two blanks one for command and one for arguments. What should be in the blanks?

Thanks

Juliusd is actually more/less a wrapper for Julius itself. What goes in these two lines is the command that julius should start.
(that Juliusd crashes if these lines are empty is a known problem - I will look into that ASAP)

You most likely want to do this:
* Copy the file simon/model/julian.jconf to the juliusd/ folder
* Edit the file and change the /path/to/foo paths to the appropriate paths (simon/model/foo).
e.g.: "-dfa /path/to/model.dfa" becomes "-dfa /home/gokee/simon-juliusd-alpha2/simon/model/model.dfa")

There are 4 paths to be changed.
Also, change the samplerate from 48000 to 16000.

* Configure Juliusd as follows:
Command: juliusd
Arguments: -C julian.jconf -input mic

Ok it seems to work now. Although I did find it amusing that juliusd/julian.jconf is a broken symbolic link to `/home/bedahr/tmp/simon/speech2text/trunk/model/julian.jconf'. I also downloaded and got a dictionary to work. So I have words I am just lacking a working mic in on my sound card (M-Audio Revaluation 7.1) I can`t even find a mic in channel in alsamixer to turn up. I am not sure what I will do there yet.

Thanks for all your help getting simon going. I guess it does not come with any built in commands?

About the julian.jconf: Yeah I saw that - about 1 minute _after_ i realeased it.
But as more and more trivial bugs are found I'll probably release some kind of "alpha2.1" to fix all those nasty little bugs.

What do you mean you don't "find a mic in channel in alsamixer"?

> I guess it does not come with any built in commands?
Nah that would defeat the poitnt. Besides, if it _would_ come with built-in commands - those would be German?...

But that shouldn't be a problem. Select "Commands" - make sure you are in administrationmode - and add as much commands as you wish...
(Just keep in mind you also have the words needed by the commands or they won't work)

Any mic in alsamixer as anything to turn up the sound from my mic port. I found out I had my mic plugged into my line in port which was not helping. After getting it plugged into my mic port I can hear a little sound in simon if I bring the mic up real close and say something pretty loud into it. Then when I play it back I can head what I said with very low volume. I think thats mostly a problem with my sound card though. My guess is I need some kind of mic amp. So from your project I take it you like a htk voice recognition better then sphinx? Why? Does htk recognize words better? (I was able to play with sphinx a little on my old computer... with this soundcard, hmmm I wonder if there is some volume control I am missing) and never got it (or me) trained good enough.

Why we chose HTK over Sphinx? Honestly? It was better documented. The book is great if you have some kind of knowledge about how speech recognition works but what really did it for us was voxforge. At that time the only tutorials available were for HTK & Julius.
I ran through the tutorial (manual approach), found it pretty straight-forward and all the steps were understandable.

And we don't really use HTK for the actual recognition - we use Julius for that.


As for your mic issue: For many soundcards there is a switch in ALSA-mixer called "20db Mic boost" which is probably what you are looking for. Don't know about your particular soundcard tough.
Just making sure: Did you go to the "Recognition" tab of ALSA-mixer? (Cycle through the tabs with the tab-key)

"...And we don't really use HTK for the actual recognition - we use Julius for that...."

What does htk do then? There was some license thing with downloading it. I played with a very simple sphinx-2 program (perlbox) a year or so ago. It seemed rather hard to make understand you. I can never seem to get straight what all the versions of sphinx are for.


"... For many soundcards there is a switch in ALSA-mixer called "20db Mic boost"..."

Nothing like that that I can find.

"...Did you go to the "Recognition" tab of ALSA-mixer? (Cycle through the tabs with the tab-key)..."

You mean capture? I did cycle through stuff with tab there is Playback Capture and ALL. Capture has one thing in it called "Multi Track Peak" however that will not move up and down

"What does htk do then?"

We use it to compile the language model. If you want to know exactly what we are doing when "compiling the model" - it is basically the same as this tutorial: http://voxforge.org/home/dev/acousticmodels/linux/create/htkjulius/tutorial


"You mean capture?"
Yeah I meant "Capture" - sorry about that...

 Mic problem

Sorry got working on other things (and fireworks around the forth). I have been trying to learn a little perl OOP. I have not figured out what to do about my mic. I guess I could plug it into a amp then my computer into the headphone port on the amp. That seems like overkill though.

Sorry this is not exactly something I can help you with.

But theoretically it should be possible to create a virtual "amplified" device - if the dynamic range on such low volumes is still sufficient...


We (the development team) opted for the "easy" way - use a USB soundcard. This has two advantages:
* Even when on different machines you can take your soundcard (and mic) with you - which increases the accuracy of the recognition (as the trainingdata will be recorded with the same mic / soundcard combination).
* Internal soundcards (especially with notebooks) are often of very low quality

The university recommended us the sennheiser PC 25 - which is just a headset with integrated soundcard (USB).

It works wonderfully with linux and is very cheap: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826106159&Tpk=sennheiser%2bpc%2b25

Hi!

To answer the question: simon will definitely work with Spanish (and with *any* other language for that matter).

However, the only supported languages for the interface (not the language model) for the moment are German and English (and Portuguese for the Juliusd). If this doesn't bother you, there should be no problem at all.

However, you will need a dictionary. I have no idea if a dictionary with phonetical transcriptions (preferrably in HADIFIX or HTK format) is freely available for Spanish.

Voxforge doesn't have a project for Spanish so you will have to look for it yourself. Sorry.

If you need any help, please feel free to contact me (through this comment-system or directly per mail).

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
