    Hi! I'm a bit confused... does the asset currently support streaming speech recognition? It says "Google Cloud Streaming Speech Recognition" on the asset store but further down it says that streaming speech recognition isn't included. Which is true?

    Hello,

    our plan to implement the workable version of the gRPC with Protobuf inside Unity without dll errors and that it will work correct in the editor and in the builds.. for now we are focused on PC version...

    yes, we know that we a small team and not have enough hands to implement this plugins inside Unity super fast but we trying to do our best to make it possible to use to whole Unity users who wants this.

    After the PC demo we will continue working on Mobile version.. yes, we have some code of the streaming api on android, but for now we are prepairing to test it in the new Unity that the java classes will be directly inside Unity.. also problem with multidex and similar.

    Thanks for interesting and we will keep in tocuh to you about news.

    Thanks,
    Best

    Hi Frostweep, My team have brought your Google Cloud Speech Recognition plugin for unity.
    I am facing some issue regarding it. The google speech recognition does not support ma custom names so I have gone through its documentation and noticed that we can add hints to it.
    Here is the link to my point. Your plugin does not have function to add hints. Kindly please resolve this issue.

    Hi!

    I have bought this weekend the Cloud Speech Recognizer and the Text-to-Speech from the asset store. Now I have found that there is a "super plugin" that includes all of them plus vision that I was thinking of it.

    Can I have a discount if I upgrade to the Google Machine Learning Kit plugin?
    Thanks in advance
    Robert

    Hello,

    Actually it will work,

    but I guess you need to make plugin for request microphone permission and I guess solve problem with this requesting in general.
    looks like VR platform blocking requesting permissions. so you need to find solution how to proceed.
    it not depends from our pugin, just a troubleshooting faq.

    @FrostweepGames Would you consider releasing a beta version? Even with that limitation I would definitely be keen to buy the asset. It's a strategy quite a few assets seem to be taking. That way you also have an active user base for testing.

    How ridiculous I have to ask the same question again,

    SO, Please Clarify DOES IT NOW SUPPORT GOOGLE TRUE STREAMING SPEECH RECOGNITION?? (Not where you record the audio then submit for recognition)??????

    I cannot believe there is no robust speech reco solution for Unity..

    Hello,

    everything works fine in the Unity Editor, but if i try to test it on my Android Device, it doesnt recognize my voice at all. I dont even get asked if I should allow my microphone in the app (like how it is in your demo in app store). Your demo works fine with android. Did i forgot to change something?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    did you inserted plugin that asking microphone permission?
    or you can use new Unity API https://docs.unity3d.com/Manual/android-RequestingPermissions.html

    just request microphone permission and it will work well.

    Hello,

    which Plugin do you mean exactly? I will try the Unity API, thank you very much. But I dont see in which class you are handling the permissions.

    Hello,

    thank you for your replies. It works now! But I still found a problem: If I allow the microphone permission for the first time, than i need to restart the app in order to record my voice, otherwise it wont record it. After I start the app again and again, it works great. Only the first time were i allow the permissions it wont work. The same problem also appears in your Demo. Is there any solutions for it?

    Thank you

    Reposted from the less active thread related to this asset:

    I'm looking for a relatively simple voice recognition solution.
    For Mac and Win desktop standalone.

    1. Menu : User can speak 1 word, or just a few words, and it opens a specific scene.

    2. Single word or short words trigger an action/response within a scene.

    Can this frostsweep specific voice recognition asset do this right out of the box?

    If not, is it relatively straightforward to use, so i can implement the above?

    To start, I'd prefer to buy just this asset, and not the Google Cloud Machine Learning Kit.

    Does this asset have all the same voice recognition functionality/demos/uses as the more expensive kit?
    Is there an upgrade path to the Cloud Machine kit, after i buy the voice recognition asset?

    thanks!

    Hello,

    you can use it like you want.

    in result you will get recognized text. so you just need to compare it with your list of commands and then change scene or whatever you want^^.
    yes. you could by only speech recognition asset not whole kit.
    and yeah, you will have a discount provided by asset store to buy whole kit.


    Best regards

    Hi,

    Speech recognition is a powerful tool for certain kinds of unity projects.
    I bought this asset, and am trying to figure out how to do a simple Menu system.

    Player says the word Home, and it triggers leaving the current scene and going to the home scene.
    Or
    Player says the word Water, and it triggers leaving the current scene and going to the water scene.

    I'm not really a coder, more a big picture person, designer/ artist.

    Trying to get the code below to work, but running into some syntax errors.
    There may very well be other things missing/or not done properly, since my coding skills are not strong.
    I tried using the Visual Editor Debugger, but I couldn't sort things out.

    Thanks in advance, if you can help.
    / shwa


    Code (CSharp):
    1. using UnityEngine;
    2.  
    3. public class VScene8 : MonoBehaviour{}
    4.  
    5. public class Command
    6. {
    7. public string commandText;
    8. public System.Action commandAction;
    9. }
    10.  
    11. List<Command> commands = new List<Command>();
    12.  
    13. void Start()
