Components

The main goals of this project is to offer support for Estonian speech recognition on the Android platform, as well as grammar-based speech recognition for voice command applications.

How to add support for other languages than Estonian is detailed in https://github.com/Kaljurand/K6nele/issues/38

For documentation, APKs, app store links, news etc. see http://kaljurand.github.io/K6nele/.

Building the APK from source

Clone the source code including the speechutils submodule:

git clone --recursive git@github.com:Kaljurand/K6nele.git

Point to the Android SDK directory by setting the environment variable ANDROID_HOME, e.g.

ANDROID_HOME=${HOME}/myapps/android-sdk/

In order to change your build environment create the file gradle.properties at a location pointed to by the environment variable GRADLE_USER_HOME. This will extend and override the definitions found in the gradle.properties that is part of the release. Add e.g.

org.gradle.jvmargs=-Xmx1536m
org.gradle.parallel=true
# Experimental (makes the APK a bit smaller)
android.enableR8.fullMode=true

Build the Kõnele app

./gradlew assemble

If you have access to a release keystore then

  • point to its location by setting the environment variable KEYSTORE

  • set KEY_ALIAS to the key alias

  • add these lines to your gradle.properties found in GRADLE_USER_HOME:

    storePassword=<password1>
    keyPassword=<password2>
    

The (signed and unsigned) APKs will be generated into app/build/outputs/apk/.
