Language - so important, so many options, so much confusion - what to do ?

Yep, the tower of babel ..  
We live in the age of Information and Information Exchange...  humans are spongey and adaptable and evolve communication all the time ..

And if everyone is using different interfaces ... how can we understand ?


The Cookie Factory - aka deployer

Ahoy !
In order to provide a stable platform and continuously build the new Nixie release of MyRobotLab I made a new Nodejs application called the "deployer".  The source code is posted on github.  


Build Server Shenanigans

GroG's picture

In the past the build server would often fail  (even Travis would) because of lacking resources.   But it was always nice to have a public place to show the current status. I have more resources locally and its less expensive for me to do builds.  We potentially also have a wider variety of resources too as a collective, which might be better testing too.

Ahoy !   

I'm going to implement some form of Encoders for the RoboClaw service and I'd like to align with previous work and future plans.

Doing a quick google https://www.google.com/search?q=myrobotlab+encoder 


Double Speaking Manticore with WebkitSpeechRecognition + NaturalReaderSpeech

GroG's picture

Gael reported a problem with Manticore release.
When using a fingerstarter & natural reader speech service, it would "double speak"

I looked into the details and found WebkitSpeechReader was publishText was "calling" recognized.

I do not think this is desired.

WebkitSpeechReader is a text publisher and a recognizer.  So I would expect both of these events fired when it recognizes something.  But these are independent events and should NOT be calling one another.
