Virtual Switch to start voice assistant listening

Is there a way to add a template switch to the ESP32-S3-Box3 that will start the voice assistant listening for commands again? I had this setup on an ESP32-S3 dev board, but the same switch template config seems to lock up the Box 3 device.
I’m using the “OpenAI Extended Conversation” add on for my assist pipeline, and had a node red automation that would listen for the assistants response to be a question, and if it was, it would trigger the switch. It basically made it to where I could answer any questions it had.
