Voice Recognition Module for MagicMirror2

Information

This voice recognition works offline. To protect your privacy, no one will record what's going on in your room all day long. So keep in mind that there is no huge server farm, that handles your voice commands. The raspberry is just a small device and this is a cpu intensive task. Also the dictionairy has only the words specified by the modules, so there is a chance for false positives.

If you can live with latency, bugged detections and want to have data privacy, feel free to use this module.
