Weekly notes

A three day week in Hong Kong because of Easter and Tomb-Sweeping Day.


I had one Chinese lesson with a teacher on Italki during the week. It was the first in a few months.

Realtime audio transcription

Worked a bit on the browser side of my project. I wanted to show a waveform while the user was speaking. Found an example using an AnalyserNode on MDN which I used as a starting point. Especially getting a buffer of time domain data was much easier than I thought. I can probably use the same technique for creating a data buffer which I’ll send to the server for transcription as well.

Take a look at the result here:

The source is available in my Github.

Some links I saved during the week:
