    Lightbulb Have an idea for voice recognition software, need advice on where to start!

    My name is Mo and I'm a studying Law in university.

    I have a great idea that will help with my education. I want to create a software that you ask questions to and it responds.

    For example a lawyer may ask, "Where were you on Thursday at 2pm" and the defendant will respond "i was at home". I want to make a software that I can ask questions to, and it will respond with pre-programmed responses, to help with my training.

    I have only very very basic coding abilities, so I wanted some advice on how I should go about making this. I was wondering if there was any open source voice assistants or chat bots I could use for this purpose?

    So far I have seen many different open source voice assistants, Is this the best place to start? How is it best to teach a software many questions? The problem with these open source voice assistants, I feel like they are very complicated with the ability to run lots of different commands like open the weather, or make a call. But all i need are just responses that are pre-programmed.

    If anyone has any advice on where to start I would very much appreciate it! I have only very very basic coding abilities!

    Thank you

    Note: I'm a near-total beginner with java, but hopefully this advice is better than no advice

    First of all, definitely build those coding abilities from "very very basic" to at least advanced beginner, hand-copying/hand-writing code is a really good (and highly underutilized) way to speed up learning progress

    Secondly, seeing as you're asking about voice recognition software, I'd start by applying the above advice to sound-related and A.I.-related source examples, this will help you to build your coding skills and do so in a way that's highly relevant to the actual software you're interested in making, a few notebooks of hand-copied code for both audio and AI and you should be well on your way to turning your app dream into reality!

    Thirdly, slow breath meditation works really well on many, many, many levels (according to an indian yoga book, higher states of consciousness are immediately noticeable at breath rates of <= 15 seconds per inhale, and <= 15 seconds per exhale, <= 30 seconds per breath cycle, from personal experience slower breathing is definitely the key to attaining higher states of consciousness)
