Speech to Text API
Microsoft Speech Platform's Speech Recognition API is built into Ozeki 10. Use it as a connection. This makes you able to control other Ozeki 10 connections with human voice. The automatically recognised language is converted into text, which can be routed to other connections.
- A microphone to detect voice
- Ozeki 10 installed on your computer
- A webbrowser (best on Chrome)
STEP 1: Start Ozeki 10's Control Panel
First you should start by opening your device's webbrowser. Google Chrome is highly suggested for this tutorial.
Login to your Ozeki browser GUI and start 'Control Panel' from the start menu (Figure 3).
The 'Control Panel' is the most important application you can find in Ozeki 10. It is capable to handle and route connections if necessary. A lot of connections are automatically detected, but some connections can be added manually.
STEP 2: Create a Speech to Text connection
In this tutorial you can see how to add a Speech to Text browser connection.
On the control panel you have to click 'Create New Connection' and select the 'Audio' icon (Figure 4). This option contains all audio connections (e.g. sound recorder, speaker, speech to text, text to speech)
On the next selection window, click 'Speech to Text' (Figure 5).
Disable system tray notifications if you do not like popups. If not, every detected word will appear in a yellow popup jumping from the bottom right corner. Although you can disable it later on by reconfiguring the Speech to Text connection details. After finishing configuration, please click 'Ok' (Figure 7).
STEP 3: Add a word set to the dictionary
It is essential to add some words or default word sets, so you can turn on the connection.
You can add some detactable words by clicking 'Details' on the 'Control Panel' (Figure 8).
Now you will see how to add a word set of numbers.
Click on the big blue 'Create new Detactable word' button then on the 'Word set' icon (Figure 9)
Click on any desired set of words. If you would like to follow this example, select 'Numbers' (Figure 10).
On the left side panel you can activate the connection with the slide (Figure 11). You can find a small dot next to the microphone icon on the system tray. If the connection is activated, the red dot changes to green. In this case you can close the 'Control Panel', since the browser API works correctly.
Finally you can test it. You can choose from two methods. The first one is creating a route by using the 'Control Panel'. The second method is creating a simple C# code in Ozeki Robot Controller. By testing it, you can see the text messages travel through some connections.
