I first used snips on a clean and fresh raspbian buster installation on a pi4, however I could not get it to detect the wake word.
I now did a reinstall on a raspberry pi 3b downgrading to raspbian stretch. I then did the installation gain (using
sam), and now it is working. I have installed 2 apps from the store (weather and alarm clocks)
I have, however, 3 issues:
I cannot record my own hotword, the script keeps complaining about too much noise (see last post here)
The TTS audio playback seems to cut off snips responses some times. E.g. if I ask for the weather, audio stops playing before the full response has been spoken
I have to set
true, otherwise, after detecting the hotword, snips will not continue, but instead abort after a while, complaining that something did not complete. I guess it is trying to play the feedback .wave file, but it wont play, so that the processing chain gets blocked.
I should have a rather standard setup (raspberry pi 3b, raspbian stretch), but the sound cut off is really a no-go. The other to issues are bad, but not a must have.
Does anyone know if those are known issues, and how I can fix them?
