Final Project Progress

For my project, I’m building some sort of contraption to accompany Zoom classes. It’s been a chaotic week and I haven’t made as much progress as I would have liked, but I’ve been playing around with the speech recognition library in P5.js.

Here’s my code thus far:

	var myRec = new p5.SpeechRec('en-US', parseResult); // new P5.SpeechRec object
	myRec.continuous = true; // do continuous recognition
	myRec.interimResults = true; // allow partial recognition (faster, less accurate)
var recordedString = "";

	var x, y;
	var dx, dy;

	function setup()
		// graphics stuff:
		createCanvas(800, 600);
		background(255, 255, 255);
		fill(0, 0, 0, 255);

		// instructions:

		//myRec.onResult = parseResult; // now in the constructor
		myRec.start(); // start engine

	function draw()
		text(recordedString, 20,20);

	function parseResult()
			var mostrecentword = myRec.resultString.split(' ').pop();
			recordedString += mostrecentword;


I still need to add the functionality for wrapping the string and making sure that it removes a word printed if it realizes it’s actually a different word. For instance, when saying the word “happening’, “happy” would print to the screen and then “happening.”

This week, I hope to get started on building a capacitor sensor (foil inside pillow).
