VUI (Voice User Interface) Music Dictation App & Animated Pitch Video
February - March 2021
6 week project
Animated Pitch Video: September - December 2021
4 month project
By inflecting my strength and passion for music education into all of its elements, Noteable is a voice user interface that provides an audible assistant named Yanni, who will help the visually impaired learn new songs. The VUI dictates the notes of a song to help users learn without the need of sheet music. While the main focus is to help the visually impaired, the VUI can also be used by aural learners, and those who are less strong at reading notes.
I created an animated pitch video which showcases the concept, Noteable. The video is targeted towards potential investors and informs its audience what the app is about an how it is applicable for all audiences and accessibilities.

Conceptualization To Final Product
While doing my research and concept stage for this project, I discovered that those suffering from glaucoma or any visually impaired person, all miss the ability to read. I knew I wanted to provide a VUI that would help users with reading loss. I started to think outside the box and relate it to my passion and current career, music. With more research of current VUI’s out there, I then discovered that an audible guide to music notation has yet to be developed.
Building this VUI was a lot of work but was really interesting and rewarding for me. As a music teacher, I thought of how I would personally teach and then did my best to break the song down for a user who is visually impaired. I then focused on having the VUI relay this information through simple and easy to understand instruction.
