How it started
It started from the simple idea about how to make online lectures better.
What it does
Visual lecture is a system that transcribes audio of a lecture in real time and also fetches visual aids to further enhance the experience. Not only does this enhance the experience of online lectures but also enables the hearing impaired to follow along in online or in-person classes by using our web interface. They wouldn't need a translator to have the same experiences as other students.
What its built on
Challenges we faced
The main challenge we faced was integrating all of API's together into one cohesive system. We had to learn to complete a large task under a small time constraint. One of the largest challenges was getting the audio to transcribe in a fast and accurate manner.
