Speech Recognition & Stock Library API

September, 2019

The possibilities of the internet are always expanding and the implementations are endless. We worked with Google Chrome’s speech recognition script and hooked it up with the stock photography library Unsplash so you can ask the browser to show you a photograph of your choosing by describing something.

Note: As this is a new technology it currently only works in the latest version of Chrome.


How does it work?

Well to be honest it sits on the shoulders of technologies developed by Google and Unsplash. We simply had the idea of how to implement and integrate them. Google Chrome browser has built in speech recognition that we used to search for photographs using the Unsplash API, Application Programming Interface (a computing interface to a software component or a system, that defines how other components or systems can use it). We used this to search for and display photographs based on the words a user spoke.
