Title (EN) MEDIA PLAYBACK SYSTEM WITH VOICE ASSISTANCE
(FR) SYSTÈME DE LECTURE MULTIMÉDIA À ASSISTANCE VOCALE
Abstract:
(EN) Example techniques involve invoking voice assistance for a media playback system. In some embodiments, media playback system is configured to (i) capture a voice input via at least one microphone device, (ii) detect inclusion of one or more of the commands within the voice input, (iii) determine that the one or more commands meets corresponding command criteria associated with the one or more commands within the set of command information, and (iv) in response to the determination, select a first voice assistant service (VAS) and (a) forego selection of a second VAS, (b) send the voice input to first VAS, and (c) after sending the voice input, receiving a response to the voice input from the first VAS.
(FR) L'invention concerne des techniques données à titre d'exemple qui consistent à invoquer une assistance vocale pour un système de lecture multimédia. Dans certains modes de réalisation, un système de lecture multimédia est configuré pour (i) capturer une entrée vocale par l'intermédiaire d'au moins un dispositif de microphone, (ii) détecter l'inclusion d'une ou plusieurs des commandes dans l'entrée vocale, (iii) déterminer qu'une ou plusieurs commandes satisfont des critères de commande correspondants associés à une ou plusieurs commandes dans l'ensemble d'informations de commande, et (iv) en réponse à la détermination, sélectionner un premier service d'assistant vocal (VAS) et (a) renoncer à sélectionner un second VAS, (b) envoyer l'entrée vocale au premier VAS, et (c) après l'envoi de l'entrée vocale, recevoir une réponse à l'entrée vocale provenant du premier VAS.
