Details

This month's topic will focus around web speech APIs from guest speaker Caterina Paun.

The Web Speech API allows you to incorporate voice within your web apps. With this free API, you can take in voice input through speech recognition and/or you can use speech synthesis to output voice. During this session, we will go over how you can take advantage of this API and build voice applications.

Caterina is a developer and designer focusing on voice technologies. She is currently an Instructor at Portland State University and the Senior Director of Women Who Code Portland.

Hope to see you there!
