wit-ios Build Status

This repository is community-maintained. We gladly accept pull requests. Please see the Wit HTTP Reference for all supported endpoints.

The wit.ai iOS SDK is the easiest way to integrate wit.ai features into your iOS application.

The client lets you capture intents and entities from:

  • the microphone of the device (GET /message API only)
  • text

Supports both the /converse and the /message API. Note: the /converse (story) based API has been deprecated - see our blog post for a migration plan.

Using CocoaPods

Add the following dependency to your Podfile:

pod 'Wit', '~> 4.2.1'

And then run the following command in your project home directory:

pod install

API

@property and static methods
Delegate to send feedback for the application
@property(nonatomic, strong) id <WitDelegate> delegate;
Access token used to contact Wit.ai
@property (strong) NSString* accessToken;
Configure the voice activity detection algorithm:
- WITVadConfigDisabled
- WITVadConfigDetectSpeechStop (default)
- WITVadConfigFull
@property WITVadConfig detectSpeechStop;
Set the maximum length of time recorded by the VAD in ms
- Set to -1 for no timeout
- Defaults to 7000
@property int vadTimeout;
Set VAD sensitivity (0-100)
- Lower values are for strong voice signals like for a cellphone or personal mic
- Higher values are for use with a fixed-position mic or any application with voice burried in ambient noise
- Defaults to 0
@property int VadSensitivity;
Singleton instance accessor.
+ (Wit*)sharedInstance;
Understanding text
InterpretString
Sends an NSString to /message wit.ai for interpretation. Same as sending a voice input, but with text. This uses the legacy GET /message API. If you are using stories this is NOT for you.
- (void) interpretString: (NSString *) string customData:(id)customData;
ConverseString (deprecated)
Sends an NSString to /converse wit.ai for interpretation. Will call delegate methods for every step of your story.
- (void) converseWithString:(NSString *)string witSession: (WitSession *) session;
Recording audio

If you provide a WitSession to the WitMicButton.session then Wit-iOS-SDK will use the /converse endpoint (stories), else the /message endpoint will be used

Make sure to set Wit's speechRecognitionLocale to the same language as your Wit model. The default value is en-US (American English)

Starts a new recording session. [self.delegate witDidGraspIntent:…] will be called once completed.
- (void)start;
Same as the start method but allow a custom object to be passed, which will be passed back as an argument of the
[self.delegate witDidGraspIntent:… customData:(id)customData]. This is how you should link a request to a response, if needed.
- (void)start: (id)customData;
Stops the current recording if any, which will lead to [self.delegate witDidGraspIntent:…] call.
- (void)stop;
Start / stop the audio processing. Once the API response is received, [self.delegate witDidGraspIntent:…] method will be called.
- (void)toggleCaptureVoiceIntent;
Same as toggleCaptureVoiceIntent, allowing you to pass a customData object to the [self start:(id)customData] function.
- (void)toggleCaptureVoiceIntent:(id) customData;
YES if Wit is recording.
- (BOOL)isRecording;
Context
Sets context from NSDictionary. Merge semantics!
See the context documentation in our doc for for more information: Context documentation
- (void)setContext:(NSDictionary*)dict;
Returns the current context.
- (NSDictionary*)getContext;
Implementing the WitDelegate protocol
@protocol WitDelegate <NSObject>
