Yes, certainly, lets’ see when they will publish the list of deported solution for STT if there is also other open source solution than Julius and CMU sphinx , it could be interesting to add it here.
I put here their text about this for the other readers of this tread :
We want to be transparent with our supporters, but at the same time
we need to keep some details of our project private until negotiations
are complete and contracts are signed. Remember that Kickstarter is not
a store. It is a place to build support and access capital to complete
amazing projects. Our platform is still more than 10 months away from
release and we have a lot of details to iron out before we ship.
We are currently evaluating several STT application interfaces
(APIs). Our software is designed to use multiple APIs simultaneously.
Partially this is to improve performance, but it is also to prevent
getting locked into a single technology or vendor. When we’ve selected
and executed agreements with our upstream STT providers we will
communicate our selection to end users.
We will also remain open to adding STT vendors in the future or bringing this portion of our technology in-house.
To preserve end user privacy we are looking at several mechanisms to
randomize STT query destinations, mask IP addresses and conceal other
personally identifiable information.
Mycroft is open source so users who don’t like our STT or AI selection can always deploy their own STT or AI back end.
