Interviewing is often a nerve-racking experience. We wanted to create a tool that helps users record and analyze their own responses to different interview questions and make improvements at their own pace.

What it does

RecordMe listens to a user's response to an interview question using a device's microphone input. After the user stops the recording, the web application will provide a transcript of their response and list out the number of filler words that were used.

How we built it

Our prototype is a Node.js web application that implements Mozilla's Speech to Text API.

Challenges we ran into

We had a lot of options in terms of selecting the speech-to-text API to implement for our application. It was challenging to organize our objectives.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud of how much we accomplished in this short timeframe. We completed an MVP that comes with a question generator, audio recorder, and transcript analyzer.

What we learned

We practiced re-prioritizing our tasks throughout the event. In addition, we learned how to implement the Mozilla Web to Speech API and how to create JavaScript responses to user actions on a web application.

What's next for RecordMe

  1. Merging of the current functionality with the polished user interface design. Specifically, we hope to provide users with a more user-friendly presentation of their transcript analysis.
  2. Implementation of an upload audio file function so that users can upload and analyze local audio files.
