I would not want to be the entrepreneur of a 'Find my child' app. If some data leaks, you’re in so much trouble. 😅

Or is that ok, because you expect the parents to install those apps and they should be aware of the risks of the Internet and accepting your Privacy Policy? 🤔

One open-source vocal assistant 🤖 already using the Common Voice project is .

For those interested in vocal bots, I recommend running the project on your own computer 💻. Within minutes you can get it running on a laptop and develop own skills (in Python). 👍
