Pocketsphinx as standalone app on Android wearables

March 3rd, 2017

With the launch of Android Wear’s new version 2.0 now it is possible to run standalone apps on wearables – indepentent of a phone.

Wearable Screen

The PocketSphinx Demo app for Android includes continuous listening for the keyphrase “oh mighty computer” and once that keyphrase has been recognized, it switches to grammar mode to let you input some information. And now, thanks to the contribution of Mathias Lenz, the demo app has been extended by a module to make it available as a standalone app on wearables running Android Wear 2.0.

To explore the source code and test and run it, you can just download the project from our GitHub, import it to your Android Studio, run it in an emulator and build an APK and deploy it onto a wearable device running Android Wear 2.0. Let us know how it works.

CMUSphinx at GSOC 2017

February 28th, 2017

After several years break we are pleased to announce that CMUSphinx project is accepted to Google Summer Of Code 2017 program. That will enable us to help several students to start their way in speech recognition, open source development and in CMUSphinx. We are really excited about that. See the organization page for details.

This year will be more focused on pronunciation evaluation, two major pronunciation tasks will be our preference. If you are interested to participate as a student, an application period will open soon but it’s better to start preparation of your application right now. Feel free to contact us for any questions, but do your own googling before asking very simple things! For more details see:
