KooKoo labs

At Ozonetel, we are constantly working on fun stuff which sometimes makes it to the final KooKoo build. In this post, I will share some example applications which we have been working on which have not yet made it to the final build.

Lately, we have been working a lot on speech and we have built the following applications.

1. Google Places over Voice

Process:Dial 040-30512839 and say things like 'hotels' in 'koramangala'  after beep and it will send SMS with hotels list. It could be anything. What I have given is an example. Of course, Google places should support data you are requesting.
Google places search code without speech can be found here.

2. Voicebuzz: We have added speech transcription to the voice buzz application.

Process: Sync up Facebook with KooKoo by visiting Voicebuzz app in Facebook at After Sync up, dial 040-30512834 and speak your status. KooKoo will transcribe your voice input to the best of its capabilities and post the text to your wall.

3. Twittervoice: We have added speech transcription to the Twitter voice application.

Process: Sync up Twitter with KooKoo by visiting After Sync up, dial 040-30512845 and speak your status. KooKoo will transcribe your voice input to the best of its capabilities and post the text of the tweet.
You can find the code for twitter voice without speech here.

All the above apps are in a very pre alpha stage and may have some issues. So please bear with us.

Update: We have delayed in releasing the API, as speech is a difficult problem to solve and generally recognition rates are pretty bad, especially on a phone. So we are trying to delay till we have acceptable rates before we release the API, rather than release early and disappoint users.Even now you will find that the recognition rates are not too high but sort of acceptable.Please give us your feedback.

Integrating Arborjs with Angular to create a live calls dashboard

Arborjs  is a cool graph visualization library. Angular  is one of the best JavaScript frameworks and we have been using Angular in a lot of our front end development. When you handle millions of calls, proper visualization becomes very important. Without proper visualization, you can get lost in the mountains of data. So we spend a lot of time to come up with good visualizations to represent the data. Since we loved the cool way in which Arbor represented graph data, we could not wait to hook it up with Angular. Because of Angular's two way data binding, when you hook up Angularjs with Arbor.js you can get a dynamically updated visualization of graph data with cool animations. To give back to the community, we have put up the code online at Github . Basically we have created an Angularjs directive for Arborjs. Please feel free to fork the code and add extensions and use it for your own visualizations. The code is self explanatory with comments inline. Best way to get s

Google's approach to business communication

 Google has been making silent moves in the business communication space. Google has mostly lost the instant messaging wars. But it does not want to lose the business communication war. WhatsApp, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook have been making their own moves to enable businesses to reach their customers through their channels. Its all about who has control over the communication channels. Especially communication which leads to business. That's where the money is. Currently, Google is the king of search and most online transactions start with a Google search. FB, Amazon, Apple and others want to change that. They want the search to start on their properties. And they have started making the moves. WhatsApp business allows small businesses to conduct their transactions on WhatsApp. FB and Instagram have long supported small businesses to manage their business on their channels. Apple has also made some nice moves with Apple business chat. They have integrated a whole shopping expe
