It can often be hard to prepare for interviews, and other speaking roles, especially during covid when there are fewer people to practice with. So, we thought that we would create a simple tool that analyzes your interviewing skills in real-time using various google cloud apis.
What it does
At the moment, the app gives the user a quick look into their general overall emotion, their emotions over time, and some simple tips on how to potentially better present.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We spent the majority of our time working on hosting the node.js app, as neither of us had done it before. A massive amount of time was spent on troubleshooting deploying the app with GCP, and in the end, after a lot of struggling, we surrendered to a different hosting platform (Heroku).
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are both proud of our ability to work together as a team, alongside the fact that we were able to create a functioning project that was primarily focused on using tools that neither of us were very familiar with before-hand.
What we learned
What's next for Rehearse Space
We definitely plan to better integrate the speech-to-text API, and combine it with the google cloud natural language API, to also provide real-time data on the emotions involved in your speaking, providing even more useful information to better practice interviews and "public" speaking.
