We aim to create an interface for people to stay updated with all the latest happenings from around the world without interfering with their busy lifestyles.
Let us consider a taxi driver, Ramesh who is 35 years old, educated and is passionate about keeping up with the happenings around the world. Since he is a taxi driver in Mumbai, he has to drive for 12-13 hours a day to support his family of 4. Due to this, he does not find time to catch up with the news. We propose to develop an android application that will allow him to stay updated without changing his lifestyle.
Keeping in view the busy people of the society, this platform is designed to ensure them interactive and responsive infotainment and keeping them updated with the latest happening around the world.
Our platform enables people to listen to the happenings in the society be it sports, politics, entertainment etc. through their voice.
The implementation is done in 3 phases described below :-
Phase I :- We have parsed the material from different websites be it news related to sports, politics, latest technologies etc. using the RSS feeds.
Phase II :- We have taken the users choice of category through the speech as shown in second pic. After this the latest headlines or progress in the preferred field is viewed in a listview. After this, the headline will be spoken to him one by one. Between the headlines there will be a 5 sec pause. If he is interested in listening to the entire article, he'll say "ENTER" which will take him to the activity of that article. Else he will just let that headline pass and hear the next.
Phase III :- Now when he is listening to the article he can pause in between by saying "PAUSE" and then he can speak the word he has not understood. The meaning of the world along with the example sentence will be spoken to him. If his purpose of listening to the article is solved in lets say 2 lines, he'll say "NEXT" which will take him to the next article. After this the summary of the words which he hasn't understood will be shown to him at the end for his vocabulary exercise.
