Does anybody miss Cortana?


#1

Off course you don’t, I know eheh
But I just upgraded my monitor, except for looking way better it features integrated sound, camera and microphone so it’d be great having a vocal Assistant!
I will be looking for one available (and working correctly) for elive, do you know any?


#2

This is a feature I love too ! Me and my son we have Amazon Echo, Echo-Dot and we use them for everything ( music, questions about everything, reminder, agenda, joke etc)

I read that there is some Alexa developer kit, and someone that is good, could create some Amazon Alexa ( equivalent of Siri) into an Apps for computers…

I followed a very long procedure / steps to do it LOL and it didn’t worked but I am sure I messed up somewhere,

So it’s not a question of generation, Fancy car are heading that wea, Amazon, google, Apple, and if we have a very cool Vocal assistant, a lot of people would love it LOL

I will try to find the links about the Amazon free programm for that…

I don’t know about Elive specifically, but there is one called Mycroft for Linux…https://mycroft.ai/

@crazycomputerguy did you try it ? Were your able to make it work ?

Just tried, was not able, but I am not that good yet with installing linux appls manually


#5

I will try asap


#6

Yes, I was FINALLY able, but be warned that it’s going to take a LOT of time, and a LOT of internet!! (and probably a good amount of drive space, too!)
I was on Bodhi Linux when I did it, btw, not Elive…

These guys have a funding project, so if you end up using it, try and support them if you can, yeah…? :slight_smile:


#7

How much drive space did it take on your install? Can you still check or at least remember? Their GitHub zip file is less than 10MB in size.


#8

Can it do transcription ?

I mean, I would say " Hello Alexa or whatever it’s name or press a key" and would be able to speak in english instead of typing on the keyboard for a long message…

For now, when I am doing that, I use Google Doc Online…

No I can’t really remember, but it was probably in the order of a couple of hundred MBs - AFAIR, when I ran it, it downloaded a ton of stuff from the net itself…


#10

There’s a site called dictation.io that does that. Chrome only, AFAIK (because the code that does it is inside Chrome!)


#11

Dication is a very useful feature that can allow people to write documents much faster, but how much useful is in real life?

Unfortunately not much people (non-advanced users) does’t knows about these possibilities, so could be nice to have this feature more implemented / integrated, but only if is really worth (useful) to have it

  • Extremely useful
  • Sometimes useful
  • Not so useful
  • Waste of time
