Neon Speech

Speech (Voice) Module for Neon Core. This module can be treated as a replacement for the mycroft-core speech module. This module handles input audio, performs STT, and optionally returns the text or forwards it to the skills module for intent parsing.

Neon Enhancements

neon-speech extends mycroft-speech with the following added functionality: * Support for continuous STT without a wake word * Audio processing module plugin system to modify audio and extract context * Messagebus API listeners to handle outside requests for STT or inputs to the skills module * Arbitrary configuration supported by passing at module init


Mycroft STT and Wake Word plugins are compatible with neon-speech, with the exception of skipping wake words, which is currently only supported by Neon STT plugins.
