Google AIY Voice Kit v2

by Google

Learn how to talk to machines with this compact, cardboard speech recognition system based on Google Assistant!

Build your own natural language processor and connect it to the Google Assistant or Cloud Speech-to-Text service, allowing you to ask questions and issue voice commands to your programs. All of this fits in a handy little cardboard cube, powered by a Raspberry Pi.

The AIY Voice Kit contains all the components you'll need to make a small loudspeaker with microphones - including a Raspberry Pi Zero WH and all the necessary software (you'll just need to add a power supply). The clear, step by step instructions show you how to assemble your AIY Voice Kit, connect to it, and run the Google Assistant demo, which turns your kit into a voice assistant that responds to your questions and commands.

Google provides a fully documented Python API for using the speech services and interfacing with the Voice Bonnet.  The Voice Bonnet has some useful additional interfaces (such as PWM) and is ideal for adding speech recognition and processing capability to your Raspberry Pi based project.
