Traderlynk -Tincan


Intercom like communications for the financial community. I was employed to design and build the user interface within the browser. The application was implemented in vanilla javascript and made use of the Web audio API to allow client side control of volume panning and recordings playback. The Web speech to text api is used to translate the text before sending to the server. The web midi API was used to connect to external hardware controls.

D3 is used to visually represent phone connections and the Web audio API is used to playback and historical recordings with controls to search and alter playback speed.

Phonegap was used to convert the web app to a native app for Android, which could then be distributed through the app store.
