Detailed Description

User can configure several "search" objects with different grammars and langauge models and switch them in runtime to provide interactive experience for the user.

There are different possible search modes:

  • keyphrase - efficiently looks for keyphrase and ignores other speech. allows to configure detection threshold.
  • grammar - recognizes speech according to JSGF grammar. Unlike keyphrase grammar search doesn't ignore words which are not in grammar but tries to recognize them.
  • ngram/lm - recognizes natural speech with a language model.
  • allphone - recognizes phonemes with a phonetic language model.

Each search has a name and can be referenced by a name, names are application-specific. The function ps_set_search allows to activate the search previously added by a name. Only single search can be activated at time.

To add the search one needs to point to the grammar/language model describing the search. The location of the grammar is specific to the application.

The exact design of a searches depends on your application. For example, you might want to listen for activation keyphrase first and once keyphrase is recognized switch to ngram search to recognize actual command. Once you recognized the command you can switch to grammar search to recognize the confirmation and then switch back to keyphrase listening mode to wait for another command.

If only a simple recognition is required it is sufficient to add a single search or just configure the required mode with configuration options.

Function Documentation

POCKETSPHINX_EXPORT fsg_model_t* ps_get_fsg ( ps_decoder_t ps,
const char *  name 
)

Get the finite-state grammar set object for this decoder.

If FSG decoding is not enabled, this returns NULL. Call ps_set_fsgset() to enable it.

Returns
The current FSG set object for this decoder, or NULL if none is available.

Definition at line 552 of file pocketsphinx.c.

POCKETSPHINX_EXPORT const char* ps_get_kws ( ps_decoder_t ps,
const char *  name 
)

Get the current Key phrase to spot.

If KWS is not enabled, this returns NULL. Call ps_update_kws() to enable it.

Returns
The current keyphrase to spot

Definition at line 561 of file pocketsphinx.c.

POCKETSPHINX_EXPORT ngram_model_t* ps_get_lm ( ps_decoder_t ps,
const char *  name 
)

Get the language model set object for this decoder.

If N-Gram decoding is not enabled, this will return NULL. You will need to enable it using ps_set_lmset().

Returns
The language model set object for this decoder. The decoder retains ownership of this pointer, so you should not attempt to free it manually. Use ngram_model_retain() if you wish to reuse it elsewhere.

Definition at line 543 of file pocketsphinx.c.

POCKETSPHINX_EXPORT const char* ps_get_search ( ps_decoder_t ps)
