Video recording page
We're a culturally diverse team; we understand the obstacles that language can pose for us and our loved ones. Many people are capable of doing great things, but are inhibited by language and communication. We don't think this is fair. We believe actions speak louder than words, but understand that words are still vital. This is our take on a system that helps students like us develop our abilities to convey our thoughts without hesitating and without feeling nervous.
What it does
It takes a video of the student, analyzes it and performs various cognitive processes on it. Cognitive processes include tracking facial expressions/emotional changes over time and speech analysis. Using Google's speech to text API and NLTK, the recorded speech is converted to its equivalent text, stop words are identified and better alternatives are suggested for certain words (adjectives) to improve the overall quality of the speech. Using Microsoft's Cognitive Services API for Emotion Analysis the video is processed, emotions are computed over time and graphically displayed for better understanding of variations.
How we built it
What's next for SpeakEasy
With more time, we'd work on incorporating sleeker visuals. We'd include database capabilities to allow users to track their progress over time and access their past recordings. Lastly, we'd love to make SpeakEasy mobile, and thus more accessible.
