In Summer 2022, I did my first research internship in college. I joined Dr. Sun's research lab at Cal Poly Pomona. During the internship, I worked on a research project related with AI. Since I like listening to audio books, I thought of building an application for those who also enjoy audio books but the audio is not available. I first used the code to access the image files of the computer, which supports txt, png, or jpg formats. In the txt file, my program uses Mac say command to make the sound and for-each loop to read out each words. If the input is a png/jpg file, the code inside will upload that file to the Microsoft machine learning AI engine which can automatically extract the text inside a png/jpg file into an txt file. After it is converted, the AI will send the txt file back, and the code inside will repeat the process above to read out the whole article.
