    Question Final year project

    Hi All,

    It's that time... time to choose my final year university project.

    I'd like to implement the project using C#.

    I thought of writing some type of meeting recorder for skype, i suppose it would be a like dictation machine for VoIP. Then possibly add some kind of media player to play back the recordings. However I am unsure if this is complex enough for a final year project.

    Just wondering if any of you guys had any creative ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Adam

    I dont have any idea's, but you should do this anyways,
    then sell it to skype, if they dont already have one.

    What about making it more generic, ie not just skye? And store the audio files and the speech transcript, so you can search through the database later. For example, if you were a uni student, you could record all your lectures into this application, and when test time comes along, you could search for "Java" and get a list of all the recordings containing the word Java. Much easier than taking notes IMO.

    I didn't think it was an idea that could be made complex enough for a final year project. But as you have pointed out making it more generic introduces loads of new feaures that can be implemented.

    Recording VoIP conversations was just a initial idea. it would be nice to select an audio source to record from, i.e. VoIP, just the microphone (lectures, meetings), media player, etc

    Backing it with a database and adding a search facility (by content, date, etc) would almost be essential because there could be potentially hundreds of audio files to search through.

    Anyway, thanks for the advice and reassurance.
