Jumping into Week #10 already?
Merging Azure/WSA All in one project
As we are shifting from our development processes and into usability testing and to gather feedback from the users who use our browser apps. Emelia brought in one person to use as a pilot tester for the AB testing environment that she has worked on more than I did. We greatly appreciate the feedback we got from her participant for the AB testing environment. Due to the feedback, she made a couple minor changes. This is also where we were looking into getting the new features added. There are two environments: A & B. A is more focused on the captioning itself. B is more focused on the transcript itself. With the captioning project, the captions are shown at bottom of each video participant’s screen. The new feature our mentor/team has suggested was to add a “stretched” full screen caption overlay that you could double click to make it expand or shrink. The captions in their default state only show 2 rows. When you expand, it will depend on the size of video and based on that it could display anywhere between 10 rows and 30ish rows. This depends on the display resolution as well if I recall right. We were also exploring to add another feature, a username display on top left corner of every video participant to indicate their names. Theoretically speaking, if you were to read the transcript (it already has usernames set up) you wouldn’t know who is who. With the usernames added to the video participant’s screen, it helps people identify the speaker’s names and when they read the transcripts with their names on it, they would know who the names were referring to whoever is in their video screen (if you were meeting with some people for the first time, you don’t know their names, this becomes useful in that situation). I developed some code initially, but Emelia helped move it forward to get the usernames to show up on video screens. This is one of the frustrations I had as a personal task, nevertheless, I am grateful for my team to be able to step in and help me solve this on a faster pace. The third new feature was to add a “Download Transcript” button in the B environment which has a transcript. I am still working on it to this moment. There are a couple bugs to hunt down. It is able to download a new text file, but inside the text file, it keeps on returning either null or undefined for several different methods and implementations that I’ve tried to do. Hope to see that we will have better luck tracking this bug down next week. That’s all for now! Onwards to Week #10, the final week. I cannot believe how fast time has gone to the point next week is the final week! See you then.
