Demo Time! Acusis and Echo-Cancellation Featuring Raspberry Pi

First, thank you to everyone who has backed us - you are the reason we’ve gotten this far! We’d like to share this video showing where Acusis really comes in handy. We whipped up a simple web-app using webkitSpeechRecogntition and meSpeak.js, on a Raspberry Pi 2. Offloading tasks like echo-cancellation really shines in embedded systems like this. While this is only a fun demo app, it shows the problem we’ve had in a voice-controlled podcast player we were building earlier. Read the full update.
