kiku is a voice recognition software for ubuntu / debian (32bit / 64bit). the voxforge english acoustic model can be downloaded within the application (there's also a japanese acoustic model available).

you can see the application in action here:

Cool stuff, psc. Nice vid.

I downloaded your source to try your Kiku stuff myself to give you some feedback, but I am running OpenSUSE 11.4 and I'm not familiar with the workspaces and sessions things, which are perhaps Ubuntu specific? The Readme is a bit terse.

I never used OpenSUSE, it works with RPM? It is possible to compile kiku, but not very easy: libpd (static link), xdotool (static link), julius and wxwidgets patched. If you're really motivated then i could help you. I have updated the README:


BTW: this is my first C++ software, i am no expert.

Yes, OpenSUSE works with .rpm for compiled packages, like RedHat. Source stuff is not usually a problem since the tar.gz comes with configure-make-make install process. The configure takes care of where all the libraries are found, checks that you have source headers that it can compile from, suitable version, etc. so that when you run the final package it is more or less certain to work. Suse has an rpm manager, so if configure flags that libary headers are missing then it is easy to add them to your installation via Yast.

I've no doubt you will get lots of feedback from the Ubuntu folks, but I will be keeping an eye on your project and maybe in the future you will be catering to other distros as well with make. My Julius, HTK etc were all installed with configure/make, not a problem, very quick and easy.

(PS Tried Ubuntu once fairly recently, there were lots of oddities about it that I did not take to so kept on with Opensuse that suits me well.)
