Below are the archived versions of Simon’s live streams today. The second part (starting with a genetic algorithm game in Processing/ p5.js) was an emotional roller-coaster, with the OBS software failing to capture sound and giving Simon a hard time jumping between scenes, and yet he didn’t give up.
Simon writes: In the first part of this live session, I redid my speechsynth.js tutorial (so it has some coding in it). In the second part (which will likely be WAY longer), I will do a Processing/p5 challenge about Citius Invaders.
Simon has just finished working on his first library, a #speechlibrary Speechjs. You can find Simon’s library on GitHub: https://github.com/simon-tiger/speechjs
Simon also added a reference page at: https://github.com/simon-tiger/speechjs/wiki/Reference
You can use this library for any project that uses #speechrecognition and/or speech synthesis. Simon has put it under the MIT (permissive) license, to make sure everyone can use it for free, he emphasized.
While writing the library, Simon also recycled various code he found online, but essentially this library is his own code. He calls the library “just a layer on top of the web speech API” (that means you’re limited to what your browser supports).
