Purpose of the requirements document

This Software Requirements Specification (SRS) identifies the requirements for project "RealTimeSubtitles". This is a guideline about features offered and problems that we will have to solve. It is an open source project loaded on Github, the code is well organized to allow review by us or by new potential contributors.

Scope of the product

RealTimeSubtiltes is an app designed to help partially deaf stutents in a classroom. The aim is to transcript a teacher speech in live and display the speech on the corresponding slide as subtitles. On the other hands, students in the classroom can correct the subtitle on a collaborative HMI. We have to use GoogleAPI Speech for the transcript, reveal.js for the slides and JavaScript. .

General Description

Product perspective

The main target of our project is to help partially deaf student to be more autonomous attending a lecture. This project is proposed by the department of disabled students at the UGA. In addition, we have to design a collaborative HMI for students to correct in real time the subtitles.

Product functions

The app is divided into 2 parts :

  • The transcript by GoogleSpeech

In a first place the API must recognize the teacher speech and transcript it in real time. Final result are appended into the right place according to the current slide.

  • The collaborative HMI

Designed for students, it allows logged in student to follow a course. While the teacher speech the students can either follow the courses and read the subtitles, or edit the subtitles to correct the results.

User characteristics

There are three types of users for our app

  • The teacher talking while showing his slides
  • The students editing notes
  • The students reading the notes and the partially deaf students

Operating environment

The GoogleSpeech API works on google Chrome. A good Internet connection is required for the transcript.

General constraints

  • The teacher needs to have his slides on reveal.js
  • The teacher need to talk loud and not so fast
  • The room has to be quiet (no noise)
  • These elements can reduce errors and help the API to transcript well the speech. However, it won’t be perfect due to the instability of GoogleSpeech API.
