Issues with key phrase recognition

Misty’s 2019.12.17 system update added new params to the StartKeyPhraseRecognition command, so that you can start speech capture after Misty recognizes the wake word. The expected behavior of this command is such that if you can activate Misty’s wake word without using speech capture by setting the CaptureSpech argument to false , like this:


However, the actual behavior is such that Misty always tries to capture a voice recording, no matter what value you pass in for the CaptureSpeech argument.

For now, you must work around the issue by accounting for the fact that StartKeyPhraseRecognition always triggers Misty to capture speech. See the JavaScript API documentation for a runnable code sample that demonstrates this functionality.
