Sprint 1 – Proposal


PyTalk is going to be a Speech to text program for IRC using the Speech Recognition 1.1.0 Python Library. When we are finished with the project, we will be putting it up on pypi.python.org. The main hardware we will be using is the Raspberry Pi and a microphone. Pharas and I will be working together on the project. Our mentor is Anthony Zhang , the creator of the library (and possibly Qalthos from IRC). We are going to go with an MIT License for the project.


1. Get Speech Recognition to work on the Raspberry Pi
2. Learn how to configure an IRCBot.
3. Get IRCBot to accept the information it is being sent
4. Get IRCBot to post text to IRC
Since we are only going to have a 5 week sprint for this, we can hopefully get everything done in the two development weeks. The documentation will be up to date throughout the entire development process so we don’t have as much to do come Week 4 and we can work a little longer on making it look nice and more importantly: functional.
