Beats, Rhymes and Unit Tests

Speech recognition is all around us. From the smartphones in our pockets to the devices at the heart of our digital homes, we’re never far from speech recognition technology. Not only does it enable new ways of interacting with computers, but it’s also set to reshape Human-Computer Interaction for people requiring assistive technologies. The humble web browser is no exception. The speechRecognitionAPI enables developers to incorporate advanced speech interactions into today’s web applications. But is it any good? Combining two of his passions, Tony sets out to discover if the speechRecognitionAPI can be used as an aid in transcribing hip-hop lyrics during the writing process. After an introduction to the broader technology, a mix of audio, video and live performance tells the tale of creating an MVP transcription application to aid in the writing of new songs. As a development project, each iteration of the app is accompanied by a set of unit tests. The final unit test is executed live, resulting in a crescendo you won’t want to miss.

Where to do with all the research

👉🏽 Repositories (aka repos). 👈🏽 As UX-ers we sometimes struggle to get enough research done in the first place so it's great when we finally get the research ball rolling and start accumulating eye-opening insight but... what do we do with it all? Survey results, usability test findings and discovery research interviews... where should it all go? How do we make sure knowledge keeps being seen and built upon rather than be put in a dusty report to never be surfaced again?

Jane Hostler (a well versed member of our group!) faced this problem in her work and will be sharing her experiences with us. 🌈

Here's a bit more:

Jane is a User Experience Designer who’s worked in the digital industry for the last 20 years. Primarily working as a UI designer on websites (plus some brief dabbling with front end development back when it was all tables), she landed a new job two years ago that brought the chance to gain product design and research experience and everything that comes with it. Like, what do you do with all that stuff!?

She’ll be giving a quick whistle stop tour of how Airtable has helped her to pull together the feedback and insights she uncovers in this role, and looking at the pros and the cons of Airtable as a research repository.

We're all invited to actively participate in what will definitely be a very interesting conversation and chip in with our own experiences of dealing with insight stacks.

Looking forward to seeing you there. Feel free to BYOB and food, light candles, anything goes! Details for how to join will be provided nearer the time. Please RSVP and feel free to share or invite others. We're @LadiesThatUXBRS on twitter.
