TranscriptBot is a command-line utility that listens to the sound input from your mic, transcribes each sentence it hears using the Google Web Speech API, and posts it to Slack in real-time. It lets people on your team who are not physically present follow along a meeting or conversation without having to join in a video conference call.
brew install ffmpeg(Mac OS X) or
apt-get install ffmpeg(Ubuntu).
brew install portaudio(Mac OS X) or
apt-get install portaudio19-dev(Ubuntu).
pip install transcriptbot
To use TranscriptBot on a given Slack channel, you first need to set up an incoming webhook. Here's how:
$ transcriptbot hooks add my-new-hook https://hooks.slack.com/services/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 # if you want to use the hook in your next recording $ transcriptbot hooks use my-new-hook
Repeat this process every time you want to post to a new channel.
