Communicate through sound
What it does
Posting 15 second audio messages
How I built it
We iterated with Facebook Messenger API to fetch the voice recordings and they posted the recording to the react web app.
Challenges I ran into
-No JS SDK for Facebook -Time crunch - difficulty implementing full set of features within the given time frame of < 9 hours -Integrating Google Speech-to-Text API - the audio file format had to be in linear64 encoding, thus the MP4 file (default format for Messenger app) had to be converted first -Thinking of a good idea for the hackathon
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We are proud of getting something working.
What I learned
What's next for blindBook
