Why create a whole new stt service?

Hello there,

I understand the wish to be independent from non-open-source libraries but (other than http://openstt.org says) there already are open source STT services/libraries like CMUSphinx.

Why do you want to create a service from scratch when there are alternatives? I love this projects idea but I fear that investing so much energy in openstt would hinder the progress of mycroft.

From what I’ve read, they’re using software like Sphinx and Kaldi, and are using existing open source projects. AFAIK, openSTT is the culmination of that.
