Hello Julie,

I'm going to start the same project as you. To be honest,after having
installed home assistant,I want to add the chat-gpt module and at the end,I
want to find a way to give a human-like voice to chat-gpt. Maybe I can help
you as soon as I've reached your point. Can we keep in contact ?
