Title
(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS OF OPERATING MEDIA PLAYBACK SYSTEMS HAVING MULTIPLE VOICE ASSISTANT SERVICES
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS POUR FAIRE FONCTIONNER DES SYSTÈMES DE LECTURE MULTIMÉDIA AYANT DE MULTIPLES SERVICES D'ASSISTANT VOCAL
Abstract
(EN)
Systems and methods for managing multiple voice assistants are disclosed. Audio input is received via one or more microphones of a playback device. A first activation word is detected in the audio input via the playback device. After detecting the first activation word, the playback device transmits a voice utterance of the audio input to a first voice assistant service (VAS). The playback device receives, from the first VAS, first content to be played back via the playback device. The playback device also receives, from a second VAS, second content to be played back via the playback device. The playback device plays back the first content while suppressing the second content. Such suppression can include delaying or canceling playback of the second content.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés permettant de gérer de multiples assistants vocaux. Une entrée audio est reçue par l'intermédiaire d'un ou de plusieurs microphones d'un dispositif de lecture. Un premier mot d'activation est détecté dans l'entrée audio par l'intermédiaire du dispositif de lecture. Après la détection du premier mot d'activation, le dispositif de lecture transmet un énoncé vocal de l'entrée audio à un premier service d'assistant vocal (VAS). Le dispositif de lecture reçoit, du premier VAS, un premier contenu à lire par l'intermédiaire du dispositif de lecture. Le dispositif de lecture reçoit également, d'un deuxième VAS, un deuxième contenu à lire par l'intermédiaire du dispositif de lecture. Le dispositif de lecture lit le premier contenu tout en inhibant le deuxième contenu. Une telle inhibition peut consister à retarder ou à annuler la lecture du deuxième contenu.
