Bring the experience of an expert tour guide to everyone with a phone whilst allowing content creators to make money selling GPS triggered audio guides.
What it does
Whilst the user is driving around, their phone delivers narrations that explain the natural, historical and cultural features in the landmarks that they see.
How I built it
Web scrape for initial sample content Googles text to speech to synthesize realistic audio snippets Android Studio to show map and playback audio snippets Splash page with AWS S3 bucket
Challenges I ran into
Initially attempted an alexa skill or google assistant but lack of automatic notifications was a blocker
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The android app
What I learned
Dialogflow, Jovu and Googles text to speech
