fuu.., IBM Watson STT now moved to bluemix so same crap as any other. Which means there's no reason not to go for Nuance (same as ios/android pebble). The reason - nuance is the only one I found which accepts speex natively - and that's what pebble generates as a voice stream hence no need for transcoding.
@abranson Can you ask around if we can park secure credentials into some of the Jolla's cryptoboxes? I.e. I've registered an app on nuance, it will generate an app key. apparently we cannot distribute that key with sources (nuance is explicit about it). So we need to store in some secure but available to anyone place.
hard to tell now. everyone's a bit disappointed tbh
i asked if it was because they didn't have the resources to document it, or it was a company secret, and katharine said it was more the second one, though she didn't think anyone would care or get legal if anyone rev-engineered it.
