LiveH2H-to-Slack Bridge

My team’s project for the LiveH2H Collaboration Hackathon was a LiveH2H-to-Slack bridge. It allows users to participate in LiveH2H video calls using a text-only interface by writing a live transcript of the call into the Slack channel and speaking chat messages with text-to-speech.

My main contribution to the project was grabbing the transcript by starting a headless Chrome instance, using the LiveH2H API to get a link to the call, and using the Chrome Remote Debugging API to connect to the call and intercept LiveH2H’s Web Socket messages. I worked with Sang Han, who handled the text-to-speech feature and helped with the Slack integration.

The project ended up winning the first prize. You can see a video of our pitch in 360 degrees on YouTube, but the first part of it is unfortunately cut off.
