About this project

This is an open-source exploration of creating live transcripts of speech on the web, that can be displayed (and edited) in real time on a big screen, or watched on anybody's personal device. The underlying transcription process is largely based on David Walsh's awesome blog post. The project was started by Mark Noonan at Code for Atlanta, where a growing number of people are learning and making contributions. The code is available on GitHub. Currently, any browser can watch a transcript, but only Chrome and Safari can generate them, because only those browsers have implemented the Web Speech Recognition API Specification.
