R&D: Speech Recognition
We think the coolest part of our product is the Voice Control and Speech Recognition feature. Especially for at-home chefs who have their hands and eyes occupied with cooking and/or food prep.
On the Google Developer website, there is an article - “Voice Driven Web Apps: Introduction to the Web Speech API” — and the demo that complements this article can be found here.
A number of online articles covering the HTML5 Web Speech API:
- How to Use the Web Speech API in HTML5
- Add Voice Recognition to your Website
- Web Speech API Specification
- Using the Web Speech API to control a HTML5 video
- Introducing the Web Speech API
- Accepting Speech Input in HTML5 Forms
Further, what’s the long term goals for Snacka? We see a trend in user-interface-less application such as Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa/Echo and now Google’s new virtual assistant aptly named: Google Assistant.
Thanks for listening!
