I need to make a simple app that can record the speech for me. This application will be used by non-technical people, who have little to no understanding of audio formats, specs, etc.
This is what intend to do -
- Record audio on the users computer - Play audio on the users computer - Save the audio to a file on their computer - Send the file to my computer - Run using JWS
My thought is to run a simple ftp server on my computer (on a non-standard port). The app would ftp the audio files up after they have been recorded.
The user would do the following -
1 - Run the app via JWS 2 - Press a button to start the recording 3 - The screen would present a word to the user, which they say 4 - The app pauses a few seconds and the shows another word 5 - After say 10 words, the application automatically stops recording 6 - The file is transferred up to the server 7 - The repeat 2 - 6 a few times for different sets of words 8 - They are now done and exit the app
I'm sure there are ftp libraries out there for java. The thing I'm not sure of is how to do the recording, ie what approach - JMF, Java Sound, other?
Can you all share some experience and make some suggestions?
