So I have backed the Kickstarter project and come Christmas time, I’ll be getting my shiny, new Mycroft “assistant”… But whilst I’m waiting, I thought of a couple of questions.
- Is it possible to install Mimic/Mimic 2 as the text-to-speech (TTS) engine in Linux-based operating systems? Even the original version (of Mimic) sounds much better than the default TTS in many Linux-based operating systems, and it looks like Mimic 2 is going to be even better!
- Are the plans to eventually offer a (stand-alone) desktop version of Mycroft - sort of like what my kids have on their Apple PCs with “Siri”?
- What about on Android smartphones/phablets/tablets? Are there plans to offer a (stand-alone) version of Mycroft (again, like “Siri”) at some point? I don’t use Google Now or whatever it’s called (I have it disabled), so it’d be great to be able to dial calls using Mycroft whilst I am in the car… Not to mention performing basic searches using Mycroft and things like that.
