Alexa-AVS-Sample i.MX8 WakeWord Install & Licensing

Contributor II


I have compiled and installed the i.mx8 avs-image based on this guide: Build Alexa SDK (AVS) image for i.MX8M EVK board (with Yocto Morty, Kernel4.9) 

I see that the Alexa app works fine but I need to add sensory wakeword

I have acquired the sdk and license from sensory but i have no clue how I need to activate so wakeword will work with my Alexa_AVS_App

My question is how I can do this and also install the license from sensory? Below is a picture of what i get when i try to renew the license and was wondering if anyone can help. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Unfortunately, we cannot help you with this problem. Since we do not support directly the Alexa demo. However, I am aware that the sensory license is not currently supported in the i.MX8MQ for the reason that the libraries were made for a 32 bit processor and the i.MX8MQ is a 64 bit processor. Actually, I think that at the time you are building the image, there is a text where it says what I told you.

I apologize for the inconveniences this could give you.

Best Regards,
