Currently, I am working on an exciting project to help children with mental health issues or just having a bad day.
Full signup/login system (with forgot password)
Prototyped speech recognition
MySQL integration to save user info/data/etc.
Lists of helpline and online chats with services such as Childline, with calling straight from the app
(if you think we should add some features, just tell me and we’ll see if we want to add it)
Unfortunately, we are currently unable to host this on Glitch due to its use of mysqli (which is not available on Glitch), however, I am looking into using MongoDB Atlas Clusters (free databases using MongoDB, very similar to SQL) instead of MySQL and then hosting it on Glitch.
I’ll be working on this all through lockdown, so I hope I can get it to a point where I can give you a working app. (We will use webview on Android Studio to make an Android App)
I do believe that you can sort of use MySQL on Glitch with lamp-poc. But other than that a great idea!
Hi! I think this would benefit many people.
Btw, i have several clusters if you wish to use those
Thanks for the offer. MongoDB has an option for free clusters on their Atlas thing, so I’ll just use that when I get around to it!
Okay! The chat feature could include bots that randomly picks nice messages from an array.
Just an idea
From the sounds of this i’ll assume your using webRTC?
No, I’m not. I’m just using this thing: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/SpeechRecognition
However, I could look into using a service like WebRTC to make it more streamlined.
webRTC could be useful for video calling to offer support?
Also, the speech recognition doesn’t work on Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera or Safari. I haven’t been focusing much on the development of the speech recogntion and actual ‘webapp’ part of it yet, so it probably would be best for me to find a more suitable API.
You could try a redirect if the recognition doesn’t work?
You see, this would be an app that you’ll be able to actually download and it wouldn’t be very good if you download it and then the main feature isn’t actually available to you because you used an Apple iOS phone. We want it to be available to as many people as possible.I wouldn’t want to block it off. Instead get a better working API
I see, you’ll need a flexible API for that.
@EddiesTech - i reccomend App Inventor for android development
I used to use that all the time! It uses an old version of android so the UI is a bit sketch but other than that it works well.
Sounds like we’re almost ready!
Turns out that, according to this https://chromestatus.com/feature/5043404337577984, the speech recogonition I’m using is powered somewhat by WebRTC or at least can’t be improved by it (e.g. it doesn’t have it own API for speech recogntion)
Ah, well perhaps you could use python for Voice recognition?
I really can’t find any good APIs to use. Google has this thing called DialogFlow, but I don’t even think I could use that anyway. Does anyone know some good speech recognition APIs. Twilio can recognise what you say on calls, but I don’t want it to be calling a number, I want it on the app
