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 past I had experience with Google Speech API and Google Translate API, so I decided to try with it.
And of course Go!
I created a PoC open source project to implement a
20 questions game, simple fun game where you should guess a noun by asking a maximum of 20 questions. Question can be answered only with "Yes", "No" and "Don't know". Demo page is located here.
For now I am doing voice recognition using webkit technologies, but I have plans to move it to backend and use Google Speech API. Also in plans I want to support all possible languages using Google Translate API.
Please join a project if you're interested!
