There are lots of older versions of mochad out there. All that I can say is try working backwards till you find one that works for you. Also if you didn't do an apt-get update and upgrade then try that first.
Seems there has been enough interest on my site to create an image for this so from my experience with PXH2.0 I'll attempt a universal image which will install on any Pi. ;)
For those that may be late to finding this all developement and testing results will be posted to my forum as will the download link once available.  http://forums.tuicemen.net/index.php

Of course, it might destroy a lot of marriages.  :'

Or enrich a lot of lives! In 2006 (I believe) Bill, of BVC exploited MS SAPI5 voice recon to create Bill's Voice Commander.... which controlled X10 using voice commands. (I used BVC effectively for a decade.... before Amazon introduced Alexa.) But Bill had originally developed the the voice control for X10 to aid/assist people with limited mobility.

After BVC.... Bill looked in Mindflex [games] (for mind control of whatever). We both purchased similar units and the possiablities were interesting. But well over my head.... and Bill seemed to lose interest. But the technology is there.

In 1996 I introduced a program called SpeakOUT! that did just the opposite of BVC in that it gave a voice to those who had lost the ability to speak due to ALS, CP, strokes, brain injuries, etc. It ran under W95 and could be used with a speakerphone modem to make/receive phone calls and one young man with CP used it on a laptop to become a DJ at a local bistro.

It was because some users also had mobility issues that I discovered X10 and added X10 control to SpeakOUT!

I also looked into some of the voice control and/or thought control technologies but none were then ready for primetime.

However, those technologies had little in common with the tech behind Alexa and the Alexa-related thought-to-speech tech described in the article.

……. However, those technologies had little in common with the tech behind Alexa and the Alexa-related thought-to-speech tech described in the article.

Alexa speech is unique... as it is not based on a human voice (whereas female US, Siri is actually created by using recordings of Susan Bennett ~ voice actor). And I understand experimental trials of various methods are great. But I think the tech is there now..... the profit margins..... maybe not so much

Interestingly.... Alexa is expected to evolve in her use of pronunciations and language skills as the millions and millions of user hours add up.
