JASPER 2.0 – Portable Virtual Assistant / Information Processor Using the Raspberry Pi

Virtual Assistant

Businesses are looking to outsource key services, and instead of hiring full-time assistants, many are looking for virtual ones. As a virtual assistant, you’ll perform office support duties, such as word processing, data entry, bookkeeping, and research, from your home.

Think about the expertise you can offer and what types of clients you’d like to cater to. Having specialized skills will make you stand out from the competition. Depending on your experience level, you may consider taking a virtual assistant training course, like one from VAClassroom. Find out more and connect with the virtual assistant community through the International Virtual Assistants Association.

    Amazon Echo is faster even the one you can put on the Raspberry pi but its cool. You don’t need to push a button to talk to him but with her you do and I don’t know why.

    What STT and TTS engines are you using?

      Pocketsphinx for offline mode, Google STT when it’s connected to the cloud because Pocketsphinx is much less accurate. I’m using the MaryTTS engine running on the default server, but I forget which voice I chose.
