Unable to change wake word


Whenever I change the wake word it defaults to whatever is chosen from the home.mycroft.ai site. I have changed the config in /etc/mycroft and the web config in /var/tmp. What is going wrong?

No matter what I do, mycroft_web_cache.json goes back to whatever is inputted on the website.


Hi Flamewake, welcome to the Forums :slight_smile:

The web config will always get over written. I actually added a small section explaining the different files yesterday:

Have you trained a new Precise wake word or are you trying to use PocketSphinx?


Oh I think that that’s my problem. I’m trying to use Precise without training it the new wake word. Thank you for the help!
