Additional Resources / Info

The application is made using SwiftUI, Azure Cognitive Services, Computer Vision, Firebase and Google Authentication. The app converts text to image, and then converts it to audio. A translate feature was also added to the code, however not implemented, due to time constraints. The translation was handled by Azure Cognitive Services.
