Hey, I wanted to know a few things about MyCroft and the STT and the TTS engine it uses, so…
First off, the title question
What is the default STT / TTS engine.
Is it relatively easy to change the engines? And how would one go about doing that?

Check for instance this post for privacy concerns
Is the code of Mycroft AI modular so that i can replace the current cloud STT by Kaldi or Pocketsphinx running on a local server? It's clear why the company uses cloud services for now and the approach to develop OpenSTT but nevertheless it's an...
