We got inspired because people spend so much time taking boring meeting notes, we want to save that hassle.

What it does

Ditto records live speeches and converts them to text. It also provides users with many export options including speech summarization (coming soon).

How we built it

We built it with angular and some node.js. We also didn't use a design library and built out all the UI in vanilla CSS allowing us full customization.

Challenges we ran into

We ran into a lot of trouble with the live voice transcription. The transcription had to be real time and fast which is a lot more difficult than we thought. We were able to get it working and detect periods/pauses.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We learned a lot about angular and even sending large amounts of data between components. We are all new to this sort of project so it was interesting to learn "how to learn". Understanding large documentations was such a battle even though we didn't finish everything.

What we learned

We learned how to create a very functional web app and understand technologies from documentations.

What's next for Ditto

Not sure, maybe we will finish the summarization AI.
