Needs HTK installed !

It compiled and run on my x86_64 as well :D !
(I haven't tried whether regonizes voice corrcetly, but so far runs tests correctly, so I think x86_64 should be added :) )

I am the author of simon and am very happy to see that there is a PKGBUILD for simon.

Just a quick note: We don't depend on the htk during compilation and during runtime it only extends the features of simon. For example this video was created without ever touching the HTK:
Maybe you could change this from a dependency to a recommendation?

Anyways, thanks for this!

Too bad, that the author do not update this great tool. I fixed the new dependences for version 0.3.0. Here is the hole PKGBUILD file:


pkgdesc="A ready-to-use interface for the julius CSR engine for a handicapped person, which is not able to use the keyboard well."
depends=('htk' 'portaudio' 'qt' 'flex' 'bison' 'docbook-xml')
makedepends=('automoc4' 'cmake')


build() {
cd $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver

make || return 1
make DESTDIR=${pkgdir} install
