ReSpeaker supports both online cognitive services and offline lightweight speech recognition engine. You can add ReSpeaker to things around you to make them smart(smarter).
It’s a device for music streaming
Voice interface has never been apart from music entertainment, so does ReSpeaker. ReSpeaker supports Airplay/DLNA for wireless music streaming. Just connect ReSpeaker to any ordinary speaker with an AUX cable, then you can start enjoying the music you love without pressing a single button.
Rather than the on board MT7688 Wi-Fi module which runs the Linux based OpenWrt, ReSpeaker is also powered by the ATmega32u4 chip and absolutely Arduino compatible, which means, we can use ReSpeaker as a powerful Arduino board and do many ‘Arduino’ things. It’s for learning, it’s for practicing, and it’s for fun.
The exposed PCB design does not mean ReSpeaker is just for people who knows a lot about hardware or software.
ReSpeaker uses a user-friendly Web-based App that can be set up by anyone in just minutes. In the App you can access a range of rich featured applications that ReSpeaker has provided, includes music streaming, file manager, plug-in, customized settings and more.

The plug-in system is specially designed for the users to share and download their voice interactive projects as a simple plug-in to the ReSpeaker module. It has significantly simplified the use of ReSpeaker as anyone who has a ReSpeaker can install the plug-ins they want with a single click, and after that they can run voice interaction just like any others.
Developers can of course achieve more with the SDK we provide to develop their own voice interaction projects.
The far-field MIC Array allows your ReSpeaker to be able to recognize your location and hear you from across the room even while the music is playing.
And the Grove extension board brings even more possibilities as you can connect various Grove sensors and actuators to extend its capabilities. The two onboard expansion headers also offer I2S, I2C, AUX, USB 2.0, GPIOs and many other interfaces that you can use for more applications.
We make ReSpeaker compatible with the Wio famil for you to add voice interaction with any of your IoT devices that is built on Wio. Simply pair your ReSpeaker to your Wio product using our Web App, then you can voice control your Pet Feeder built to dispense treats, or ask your Smart Plant if she need some water.
We have demos with step-by-step tutorials to help you getting started with your first project using ReSpeaker.

An Open Software Ecosystem
We recognize that each project has different requirements and goals. As such we have worked to provide as much flexibility to developers as possible. Our quad-core solution allows us to run numerous software solutions. From the selection of algorithms, NLP services, smart assistants, operating systems, and more, we wish to support our users. If you have suggestions on what services you would like to see us officially support let us know on our forums, or if you enjoy the work yourself, submit a merge request to our github.
