Contest Brief

I require a voice recognition application that will take kids's voices and rate them reading a sentence. Here is more information:

This application would be a web app that would ask kids to say a English sentence or phrase, would put it through a speech recognition engine (Google, Amazon, etc. but I am open to suggestions).

If the engine correctly recognizes the sentence or part of the sentence, a completion score is returned to the user. The number of words matched should be returned.

The engine should be tuneable to gage the clearness of the speech of beginners or of native speakers.

The app should show which words the user got right and the words they got wrong.

See the spec in the files section. There are also examples of 9 sentences, spoke once by a native speaker and once by a non-native speaker.

To win the contest:

- System can recognise 50% of words of a non-native speaking child from a set of test sentences
- System can recognise 80% of words of a native speaking child from a set of test sentences

- The winner will be the application that can do the best job of recognising kids speaking. Therefore, there will need to be a way to run the app with live people.

    Dear content holder, please let me know following
    1. Are you satisfied with "chrome based" APIs for voice reorganization, or you can afford payed services like Google Voice recognization or DialogueFlow

    Hi! Quick question: before recognition of text, do you want the application to be able to record voice via microphone, or do you want to upload audio files?

      Record voice via microphone.

      That's fine, as long as it can access speech recognition engines and is configurable.

    Yes, however some type of front end is probably required to be able to test the back end. So a basic website makes sense.

    So you want a background service that takes a text sentence and a voice as a input and returns number of matched or correct word. You don't want a website that does these things.

    Great! Any tech stack of preference, or is Python / JavaScript (via Node.JS) good?

    Background service mostly. The target is windows machines and mobile web.

    What kind of app should it be? Windows OS? MacOS based? iPhone? Android? Windows Phone? Or just a background service which can be consumed by your custom apps?
