How to stop OSA voice from listen

#1 Post by Kim » Mon Feb 23, 2015 10:21 am

Good Day,
I am new to OSA and I managed to get OSA voice to work just by following the different post on forum related to this topic. However I cannot seem to find anything on making OSA voice stop listen? Is there a command or do I have to write a script in power-shell in order to achieve this? I would rather it be me to tell me, tell my lights to turn on my house not my T.V.

Welcome to OSA!

I don't use the voice features of OSA so I don't know for sure but looking through the speech plugins properties I see some about muting the mic so I'm thinking it should be possible. You don't have to use PowerShell, you could use the Script Processor plugin which is installed by default with OSA.

Well, if you want a full stop, turn off the MIC, shut the VR app, etc. As for commands, I just say the sleep word, on mine it is "Thank You", at which point it stops listening for commands and ONLY listens for the wake up phrase. Once I say the Wakeup phrase, then it will listen to all things again.
