Visually impaired and other individuals with activity limitations may find it inconvenient to browse the internet in a traditional manner so I wanted to create a voice-controlled encyclopedia. Knowledge is meant to be shared and so a chatbot with both voice and text would be more inclusive.
What it does
It is a voice-enabled chatbot that answers questions with a response from the Wolfram API based on a user's query. If that fails it defaults to Wikipedia. Questions are not just limited to general knowledge they can also be scientific
How we built it
It was built using python, flask and the libraries for Wikipedia and Wolfram Alpha. Speech recognition is handled in the browser using google's web speech API.
