Console query using microphone icon gives error "Cannot start source"


#1

Hi, I wish to test some voice queries using the console microphone Icon. However when I click on the Icon I briefly get “Speak Now” response followed by the error "Cannot start source.

I can type the query and get correct response OK. Just the microphone Icon does not work.

My audio setup seems to work fine otherwise.

I’m running:
Version 65.0.3325.181 (Official Build) Built on Raspbian , running on Raspbian 9.6 (32-bit)

Any Ideas please?

My initial Response should readread:
I’m running Chromium:
Version 65.0.3325.181 (Official Build) Built on Raspbian , running on Raspbian 9.6 (32-bit)

I’ve tried this on Chrome from a Windows 10 Laptop and it works OK.

I wonder if your issue is related to mine. (made it 3 times on 3 sd cards, bug is reproductible)

install strech lite and respeaker 2 and mic & speaker work fine.
install sam (but not snips yet), sam test speaker is working , but sam test microphone doesn’t, sam setup audio don’t change anything.
other clue :the sound loop is still working (arecord -f cd -Dhw:1 | aplay -Dhw:1)
look like the sam install script change something …
look like the ressource is busy somehow ???
help needed.
