Linux Speech Recognition (best Solution?)

Postby bester69 » 2017-10-17 20:58

Ive been looking for a good solution for linux, something like "Dragon naturally speaking"

The Google-speech engine recognition works perfect in Android, even you can download the language file for using offline. I dont get why there isnt a properly linux app that can make use of API google-speech. At least i dont find any good application for this using in linux, perhaps you can suggest me some application. :?


Im investigating how can i dictate text into desktop by using Google-speech api....
- I've found a very good solution of my own: by using Google Speech Recognition with keyboard remote (KDE connect), It works great :o to dictate using the smartphone as a microphone and the google recognition engine.

Now Im gonna try google2ubuntu to see if it works with debian..

OK, i found a very good Solution for linux. Using Google Docs with last chrome version allows "Voice Typing":
It recognize typical commands: "New line, new paragraph, comma, etc", it works very fluid and well the dictation typewritting.

There are many many Google speech api apps. Most of them are simple script type programs often In Python. People are even making their own home assistants with it.

I think that Google allowed the more wide use of it so recently that there are no clients for it in standard repositories. I have no idea, either, whether they will keep the api similar enough for it to make sense to create a local client that is in Debian for two years... Also there might be licensing problems

There are also others

I tried some of them, they dont work properlly, so i discard all of them. I guess there must a good one in somewhere, i just dont find it..

The open recognition engines are crap compared with google neuristic engine, the precision of google's recognition its really amazing. Here you can know more and run a free recognition test: https://cloud.google.com/speech/

We need something like tesseract for Voice recognition.. I hope google get free the api engine eventually.

Im happy with the Google doc "Voice Typing" feature, It work very well the dictation.

You can also train your own a deep learning algorithm with the many open source libraries out there, if you are feeling adventurous :)

There are many tutorials on YouTube etc
