Samantha - The world's first open - source personal assistant

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!


I'm excited to say I've started writing a personal assistant for the Mac. It's called Samantha, and it's very similar to Siri on iOS.


For this to work best you should have OS X 10.7 or later with Speech to Text enabled. If you want it to sound like Siri, select Samantha as the Text to Speech voice.


Some commands (as of beta versions)


-Play Alone Together


--Launch Mail


--What time is it?


--Google Voodoo Donuts


--Toggle music (plays or pauses the music coming through iTunes)


--What model mac am I using? 


And much, much more.


I've also added the ability to write extensions for it, so you can add anything else I haven't. Just say "Example extension" and you'll get more information.



If you like this or have some suggestions, please let me know.

Yeah, I've seen those. Um... Yeah. I'm still working on my project because I found those to be clunky. Mine is open source, and based on Applescript, and can still do almost just as much as those.
