In my install the wake word is working perfectly but the STT is not. I have mycroft hooked up to a local deepspeech server. DS performance is great when tested standalone, with audiofiles fed to it directly but not when the audio comes from mycroft.
For debugging puposes i dumped the audio data that mycroft sends to the deepspeech server straight into a file. When played with aplay it works but is extremely quiet. Had to increase it with sox -v192 to get it into a reasonable volume range.
Since the wake word and audiotest work fine I believe something is happening to the audio in the STT-handling code only. But unlike with “precise”, i don’t see any config settings that would let me amplify the signal or anything related to volume at all. So I’m stuck…
If anybody has got a hint for me, let me know.
