Interface to speech services for image-guided surgery.
Author: Kim-Celine Kahl
scikit-surgeryspeech is part of the SNAPPY software project, developed at the Wellcome EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences, part of University College London (UCL).
scikit-surgeryspeech supports Python 3.6.
scikit-surgeryspeech is a project which runs the Python Speech Recognition API in the background listening for a specific command (For now “start “). After saying the keyword you can say different commands, which get converted to QT Signals.
The speech recognition is done by the Google Cloud API, you have to get the credentials to use it or change the recognition service.
Please explore the project structure, and implement your own functionality.
To run an example, just start
Make sure Google Cloud API is set up correctly as described in the section below.
You can then say “start” as keyword and afterwards a command. The command “quit” exits the application.
Note: each time you have already entered a command, you need to say “start” again to trigger the listening to commands.
You can clone the repository using the following command:
git clone https://weisslab.cs.ucl.ac.uk/WEISS/SoftwareRepositories/SNAPPY/scikit-surgeryspeech
If you have problems running the application, you might need to install portaudio
brew install portaudio
Use the Google Cloud speech recognition service
To use the Google Cloud speech recognition service, you need to get the credentials first. After signing up, you should get a json file with your credentials. Download this file and set the environment variable
To the path of your json file. You should then be able to run the application.
Change speech recognition service
To change the speech recognition service if you don’t want to use the Google Cloud API, just change the command
words = recognizer.recognize_google_cloud(audio, credentials_json=self.credentials)
(file “voice_recognition_service.py”, methods “callback(self, recognizer, audio)”, “listen_to_command(self)”) to the recognition service of your choice. Currently available services are:
recognizer.recognize_sphinx(audio) recognizer.recognize_google(audio) recognizer.recognize_google_cloud(audio, credentials_json=GOOGLE_CLOUD_SPEECH_CREDENTIALS) recognizer.recognize_wit(audio, key=WIT_AI_KEY) recognizer.recognize_bing(audio, key=BING_KEY) recognizer.recognize_azure(audio, key=AZURE_SPEECH_KEY) recognizer.recognize_houndify(audio, client_id=HOUNDIFY_CLIENT_ID, client_key=HOUNDIFY_CLIENT_KEY) recognizer.recognize_ibm(audio, username=IBM_USERNAME, password=IBM_PASSWORD)
This project uses tox. Start with a clean python environment, then do:
pip install tox tox
and the commands that are run can be found in tox.ini.
You can pip install directly from the repository as follows:
pip install git+https://weisslab.cs.ucl.ac.uk/WEISS/SoftwareRepositories/SNAPPY/scikit-surgeryspeech
