We saw a list of offensive words and thought, "how could we make it easier for people to avoid them if they wanted to?"
What it does
Dynamically censors offensive/triggering terms during browsing based on applied filters. Can be used to block offensive terms of a specific type, e.g. racial slurs, or used as a form of parental control
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Understanding regex - it's very finicky!
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We finished on time and managed to create a semblance of something that people may actually want to use.
What we learned
The lexicon of offensive words is longer than you'd expect.
What's next for Yeet Speech
A release as a fully-fledged product with more customisability, e.g. being able to set your own custom words
