How to change the wake-up word?

I am using Mycroft in Ubuntu guest on windows host. I want to change the wake-up word. Someone please help me in changing the wake up word…

Hey Acnbot,

Sorry it’s taken a while to respond, we have some documentation outlining our two primary wake word technologies and how to use them:
https://mycroft-ai.gitbook.io/docs/using-mycroft-ai/customizations/wake-word

PocketSphinx is the easiest to get started and only requires text configuration, however Precise will give you a much better experience.

Let us know if you run into problems changing this.

The wakeword can also be changed to one of our supported wakewords through the web graphic interface at:

https://home.mycroft.ai/
-> Select Account Tab
-> Devices
-> Your Device
-> Defaults

Select a wakeword. By default we support: Hey Mycroft, Christopher, Hey Ezra and Hey Jarvis.

If you want something more custom like “Nebuchadnezzar” ( which would be awesome because
this ) then follow Gez’s instructions above.

I’d be interested to know how easy you find it to create a new custom wakeword.
