I've been trying for a while to get a speech to text function in Max in order to do some glitchy live captioning for a performance project. Most of the ideas I've had to achieve this have been hacks. The latest one involves downloading the url of google translate (using jit.uldl) after it finishes processing the speech to text. The way the url is set up allows me to parse out the "translation".
My issue is that when using the Chrome browser and going to http://translate.google.com/#en/en/
there is a little microphone in the bottom left corner of the left text box, which is the speech to text function. When I go to the same page in the Max environment using jweb that microphone isn't there. I'm guessing this is because the speech to text function is a browser extension that needs to be installed. Is there a way to install that into jweb or put in the Max file directory so it's recognized?
Attached is a patch showing how I've tried to set it up so far. Any help is appreciated even if that help is just telling me it's not possible so I don't waste time on a method that's not going to work out anyways.
