About The Project

This single-page website is made with Vue.js v3 and Vite 3, and Tailwind CSS and daisyUI for the user interface. The project is fairly simple, it’s to make use of Web Speech API and using an external API to translate the transcriptions. Read Translate API section below for explanations regarding the translation API.

Note: The Web Speech API is not supported by every major browsers, this is why I explicitly mentioned Google Chrome and not the others, for compatibilities check this page by MDN.

Translate API

The API uses @vitalets/google-translate-api package for translation. To host your own API for translation, copy the api folder and deploy it on Vercel.

To make your own implementation of the API for your platform, make sure to follow these rules:

  • Check for CORS headers to allow your website to fetch the API
  • POST request endpoint with the following body:
    • text for the text to translate
    • to for target language
  • POST request endpoint must return the value from @vitalets/google-translate-api‘s translate function
