Inspiration

  • We thought the concept of voice-activated chess was really cool, and appreciated the attention to accessibility, something that gets overlooked from time to time. We can see ourselves playing the game in the future!

What it does

Issues we worked on

  • Issue #55 Implement blinking icon to indicate active voice input

  • Adding features to a cool project
  • Learning about the speech services
