Mycroft Not listening to me


It shouldn’t require any top of the line computer. What sort of computer do you have?

It could also be the mic, you can test it using the command ./ audiotest

And check the mic level indicated in the cli


Mic is okay. My computer is six years old. It’s slow in other areas. It’s an Aspire 4830T-6678


Using the recent picroft image on Voicehat, Mycroft was recognising the wake word, responding in text but no sound. Turned out the default volume setting is zero - duh! I used alsamixer to reset it


Thanks for letting us know how you fixed it, appreciated.


I could recoment trying the Auto volume skill - that makes Mycroft adjusting soundlevel acording to surrounding noice level.

And also the picroft-google-aiy-voicekit is a good one :slight_smile:

This one is at the marcket to.
