Mycroft Community Forum

Serious question with an amusing example

Rather than when you say “hey, Mycroft” and get the activation ding, how can we get things like sounds affects in place? Is it possible that this can be overridden in the configuration?

This would be funny as hell to prank someone with, and think it would actually be interesting to have a different activation sound that can be customized.

in the configuration you can set a .wav file to play

in chatterbox i also added an option to speak a message instead of playing a sound, you could generate a tts file externally and point your mycroft.conf to it for a similar effect
