Games based on Voice Recognition

Wed, Jul 26, 2017 One-minute read


Hi, folks!

Last Saturday I was very inspired by Alexa skills using server-side Swift talk organized by Wizeline Vietnam team. Speakers made a demo of how can we use Alex Skill in League of Legends (LoL). This Skill enables a user to retrieve the statistics of the enemy team mid-match using voice-enabled commands.

I went home with an idea of building a game, fully based on voice recognition, without any interface. In the past, I had experience with Google Speech API and Google Translate API, so I decided to try it.

And of course, Go!

I created a PoC open source project to implement a 20 questions game, a simple fun game where you should guess a noun by asking a maximum of 20 questions. A question can be answered only with “Yes”, “No” and “Don’t know”.

For now, I am doing voice recognition using webkit technologies, but I have plans to move it to a backend and use Google Speech API. Also I want to support all possible languages using Google Translate API.

Please join a project if you’re interested!
