  • Patent number: 10777203
    Abstract: A speech interface device is configured to receive response data from a remote speech processing system for responding to user speech. This response data may be enhanced with information such as a remote ASR result(s) and a remote NLU result(s). The response data from the remote speech processing system may include one or more cacheable status indicators associated with the NLU result(s) and/or remote directive data, which indicate whether the remote NLU result(s) and/or the remote directive data are individually cacheable. A caching component of the speech interface device allows for caching at least some of this cacheable remote speech processing information, and using the cached information locally on the speech interface device when responding to user speech in the future. This allows for responding to user speech, even when the speech interface device is unable to communicate with a remote speech processing system over a wide area network.

  • Patent number: 10713007
    Abstract: A hub is configured to provide voice control without assistance from a remote system, which allows the hub to provide a user with the ability to control second devices in an environment by issuing voice commands, even when the hub is unable to communicate with the remote system over a wide area network (e.g., the Internet). The hub is also configured to execute rules without assistance from the remote system, which allows the hub to execute rules, even when the hub is unable to communicate with the remote system over a wide area network (e.g., the Internet).

  • Patent number: 10679629
    Abstract: A device can perform device arbitration, even when the device is unable to communicate with a remote system over a wide area network (e.g., the Internet). Upon detecting a wakeword in an utterance, the device can wait a period of time for data to arrive at the device, which, if received, indicates to the device that another speech interface device in the environment detected an utterance. If the device receives data prior to the period of time lapsing, the device can determine the earliest-occurring wakeword based on multiple wakeword occurrence times, and may designate whichever device that detected the wakeword first as the designated device to perform an action with respect to the user speech. To account for differences in sound capture latency between speech interface devices, a pre-calculated time offset value can be applied to wakeword occurrence time(s) during device arbitration.

  • Publication number: 20190295552
    Abstract: A speech interface device is configured with “hybrid” capabilities, which allows the speech interface device to perform actions in response to user speech, even when the speech interface device is unable to communicate with a remote system over a wide area network (e.g., the Internet). A hybrid request selector of the speech interface device sends audio data representing user speech to both a remote speech processing system and a local speech processing component executing on the speech interface device, and then waits for a response from either or both components. The local speech processing component may start execution based on the audio data and subsequently suspend the execution until further instruction from the hybrid request selector. The hybrid request selector can then determine which response to use, and, depending on which response is chosen, may instruct the local speech processing component to either continue or terminate the suspended execution.
