Speech to Text Applications and how you can make one

Speech to text is one of the best inventions of modern day technology. There are a number of times we want to take notes and doing just a voice note by recording the sound doesn't make it convenient to identify the content with just a look. 
Text to speech to the rescue. Now, you can not only record your voice but actually just convert your voice to text and be saved to your device or cloud storage for easier access. 



There are already many applications out there that do the said job and of course, the best ones are made by notable companies like Google, Microsoft, IBM, Amazon etc.

But then what about all those other Speech to Text applications out there? How are they different?
To put it in simpler words, they're not.
You could get a somewhat better result in one of the application compared to the other and that'll be only because it suits your voice better. And partially because some applications might be using machine learning to improve their word prediction.
But then so are Google and other major companies doing. You cannot possibly get a better result because the other applications are also using the same API in their back-end.

Google, Amazon, IBM and many others provide Text to speech for a very nominal fee.
In case you're developing a text to speech program you might like to look into Watson Speech to Text by IBM, Amazon Transcribe, Cloud Speech-to-Text by Google and Microsoft's Azure Speech Transcription.
Now all these Speech to Text are great and charge a minor fee. If you're looking a for a way to quickly create one Speech to Text application there are many great assets in the Unity Asset Store to give you head start.



Remove all Liked Videos on YouTube

Do you find a need to remove all the video you've ever liked?
 Well, you can do it but let me first be clear here that there is no coming back.
Once you remove all the videos from your Liked Playlist or whatever you call it, it's gone. 



Now if that is clear to you, you may proceed to login to your YouTube account and click on Liked Videos link to the left of your screen.


Step 1. Then click on the Edit button to edit your Liked videos playlist.


From here on you can either manually remove any video from this playlist.
Or if you want to just remove all of these videos follow the following steps.

Step 2. Press F12 on your keyboard and go to the console tab.
Step 3. Copy and paste the following block of code in the console.

var items = $('body').getElementsByClassName("pl-video-edit-remove-liked-video");
for(var i = 0; i < items.length; i++){
items[i].click();
}

Hit enter and the page will refresh. Now if you'll check your liked videos playlist it will be empty.

Again, this is a no rollback action, please proceed with caution and keep in mind once the playlist is empty there is no way to bring back the liked list other than manually liking every video you ever liked before.



Downloading entire playlists from YouTube

YouTube doesn't allow downloading their content but lets you save some of the videos for offline viewing. If you're travelling and doubt your Internet pack would be sufficient it always a good idea to be on the safe side and download the videos you might need during your journey. How?

I use YMUSIC for the said purpose.
You can Google the term or click here.
Just sign in with your YouTube account and you'll be able to access all your playlist and YouTube history. You can download single videos as well as the entire playlist. 


For quick instruction, there is a small video below.


For downloading the playlist, you can follow the instructions here.

Samy Smart TV for just Rs. 4999 is Bullshit and here's why!

So I just stumbled to a very refreshing news of Samy selling a smart TV for just Rs. 4,999. Now before we get all hyped up I want you guys to understand this is the booking phase and you're just throwing in your money at a product with no users as of now.
The fun part is, this smart TV is not even going to cost you Rs. 4,999 it's going to cost you more like Rs. 7500 to Rs. 8000 depending on your location as they are charging a massive delivery fee of up to Rs. 1800.

Smart Smart TV 32 Inch for Rs 4,999



Massive delivery charge 




The actual cost of Samy Smart TV


That's all.

Now, why should I buy a Smart TV with a very absurd resolution for its size when there are significantly better options readily available on Amazon and other shopping portals.

Take a look at the following TV for instance.

https://www.amazon.in/Candes-32LEDSTV-Inches-Smart-Television/dp/B07GZTWPS7/ref=sr_1_25?ie=UTF8&qid=1549023727&sr=8-25&keywords=32+inch+smart


Not only this. I'd like to bring to your attention this piece daylight scam features a 512 MB of ram. And I don't expect it to be carrying a decent interface either. I've had an opportunity to try Kevin Smart TV of 40-inch size and its interfaces straight o
ff sucks. It's an abomination.

So please do a little research before buying this scam-spam-boosted product in the name of Make in India.
There is nothing fascination with this TV.  Samy 32 inch for 4,999 or should I say Rs 8,000 including all taxes and hidden fees.

There are much better options available for slightly over this price.


How to transfer your Domain to CloudFlare

Cloudflare recently came into Domain Registrar Business and they're probably the best when it comes to pricing. Why?

No markup. No surprise fees."

That's right. 
Apparently, there is not much of a service you need once you registered a domain and it pointing to right name servers. 

Now in order to transfer your domain from a different registrar to CloudFlare, you need to open the dashboard on your current registrar and make sure there is no Registrar-Lock on your domain.



Once confirmed you'll need to get an EPP Code which you'll be entering in the CloudFlare panel where you transfer a domain.


Now when transferring a domain you need to make sure your domain is supported by CloudFlare. To check that head to TLD Policies by CloudFlare here.

https://www.cloudflare.com/tld-policies/

For anyone concerned .in domains don't come in this policy yet. So if you're having trouble transferring a .in domain to CloudFlare there is no way to do it as of now.




Once you see Transfer in progress all you can do is wait. It could take up to 14 days for the transfer to complete.

Some great quotes that can help you move on

Moving on can sometimes be troublesome. It takes time and not an easy thing to do.
Moving on quotes could help you keep focused, sometimes inspire you and keep you motivated.

Here are some of the quotes meant for the broken hearts to help move on in their life.

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

When people treat you like they don't care, believe them.

When things aren't adding up in your life, start subtracting.

Relationships are worth fighting for but don't be the only one fighting.

It takes two to tango, Two.

Accept what is, let go of what was and have faith in what will be.

Why a one account for all Streaming Services would be a great idea

Since 2011, Netflix has become one of the most powerful companies in the world, boasting a worldwide user base of nearly 150 million. Between 2011 and 2015, Netflix and other streaming services penetrated the global market so effectively that piracy plummeted roughly 50%.



However, for the first time in years, that trend line is changing. In 2018, global piracy went up.

Global piracy rate is a useful indicator for the health of the streaming market because it highlights a key value of streaming providers: convenience. Netflix proved that even in a world where piracy is accessible and relatively low-risk, users are willing to pay for convenience. No one wants to search dodgy corners of the internet to stream The Office if they don't have to.

The migration of users from streaming services back to piracy indicates that streaming services are no longer offering the same level of convenience they used to. There are two major reasons for this.

The first is market segmentation. If you want to watch WestworldAtlanta, and The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, you'll need to subscribe to some combination of HBO, Hulu, and Amazon Prime. As major streaming services invest in exclusive content (Netflix budgeted $13 billion for original content in 2018), users are forced to sign up for multiple services or miss out. As producers like Disney launch their own exclusive streaming services, the problem only grows.

The second is international licensing. International licensing for media is a nightmare, and for streaming services, it presents a massive bottleneck. While Netflix users in the U.S. enjoy thousands of streamable movies, users in Portugal get by with a couple hundred. In countries with strict censorship laws like Saudi Arabia, numbers become even smaller.

These forces converge to make individual streaming services less convenient—and therefore less valuable—to users, making the trade-offs of piracy more worthwhile. And while that may not spell the end for streaming services, it does signal that we may be seeing the end of streaming's golden age.

There seems to be a need for One Account for all streaming services in this world. But such a program will require a lot of money to put it in action. Paying royalties to streaming services and playing it through their application (maybe). Such a thing seems only possible by a joint effort. Hopefully, someday these big players will realize and work together on something like it.

Five Greatest Monologues I've ever seen




A monologue is usually a long speech by a single actor. According to its definition, a narration can sometimes be considered as a monologue as well. But not necessarily. A monologue in its own term means a speech delivered by an actor as his thoughts rather than what's happening in the scene.

I've been researching over monologues and watching and learning as much as I can.
Here are some of the greatest monologues I found online.
This list is not actually just five monologues but five sources where I found the best monologues.

1. 12 Angry Men
This movie is mostly shot in one room only with 12 men who would decide the fate of a suspect on the basis of facts and figures presented in the court. This movie takes amazing turns and full of monologues.


2. Rajat's Speech | Pyar ka Punchnama
Even though it's a Hindi monologue, English audience can find the translated subtitles on YouTube here. Considering the definition it's a monologue and can be delivered in one go.

3. Benedict Cumberbatch (Hamlet): To be or not to be
I stumbled into this while searching for monologues and I find it great. Having no background knowledge of this play I find it hard to understand but the way it is executed makes me want to watch it again and again.




4. Game of Throne Tyrion's Speech during the trial
Game of Throne is an epic series with great acting perfectly put together. There are numerous dialogues and monologues that makes Game of Throne one of the best TV series ever made.
Apart from Tyrion's speech, you can look for Khalisi and Peter Bailish's monologues.

5. Shawshank Redemption Morgan Freeman
This whole movie hits you in the spot. It's Morgan Freeman guys. Best known for his voice. 




Some mentions worth taking a look.
