It is proven we learn best when we're able to focus 100% during meetings, lectures, etc. However, we're often compelled to divert our attention to note-taking for future reference. This actually inhibits our ability to absorb as much material and information as possible when it is presented to us.

What it does

Thus, TL;DL was born. It listens and takes notes for you! Whether it be a long GE lecture, that manager with an incredibly monotonous voice, or a speech you want notes for, Too Long; Didn't Listen will take smart notes for you.

How we built it

Front End: We used Html/CSS and JavaScript to create the UI. We also used Node.js and Express.js for server-client communication. Back End: We used PHP and Google's Cloud to convert the speech to text.

Challenges we ran into

Figuring out how to make smart notes and connecting the server and client. Parsing audio files from Chrome to usable text data.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Clean UI, working application

What we learned

Hacking is fun :)

What's next for Too Long; Didn't Listen

Adding translations, importing existing audio, polishing UI, and exporting notes.
