We were inspired by the challenge set by the sponsor 'Upping Your Elvis', to use voice recognition software in a way to help people develop positive mental wellbeing.
What it does
The app monitors your voice while you speak and detects volume and emotion. If the volume drops too low or you stop speaking before the 20 minutes are up, there is an audio prompt to continue. On the screen, the volume is represented by a little duck which grows with the volume, and an animation of a sunset that lasts the duration of the 20 minutes without being too distracting. The audio file is saved along with a transcript and the emotions recorded. These can be accessed via the app library.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Literally everything was a challenge. Making the emotion recognition work was extremely difficult.
