It’s been maybe 3 or 4 days since I got Picroft working with the AIY Voicekit, and Mycroft hears me pretty well. My partner on the other hand? Not so much. It turns out she has to imitate my lower voice for Mycroft to hear her.
I assume that the reason for this is that Mycroft, like most free and open source projects, tend to be made by males of European descent, and so are most of their users. As such, it stands to reason that most of the voice samples used to develop the STT are from men.
Am I jumping to conclusions? Has anyone else had issues with this?
