SPEECH SYNTHESIS

@trishulgoel


 const synth = window.speechSynthesis;
 const voices = synth.getVoices();

 const say = new SpeechSynthesisUtterance(text);
 say.voice = voices[<selectedindex>];
 say.rate = <rate>;
 say.pitch = <pitch>;
 
 synth.speak(say);

SPEECH RECOGNITION

@trishulgoel


 const recognition = new webkitSpeechRecognition();
 recognition.onstart = fn;
 recognition.onerror = fn;
 recognition.onend = fn;
 recognition.onresult = fn;
 recognition.start();

MEDIA CAPTURE API

@trishulgoel


 const video = document.querySelector('video');
    
 navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia({ video: true, audio: false })
 .then(stream => { 
     video.srcObject = stream;
     video.play();
 });

NETWORK INFO

 navigator.onLine
 window.addEventListener('online',  fn);
 window.addEventListener('offline',  fn);

 navigator.connection.type
 navigator.connection.effectiveType //bandwidth
 navigator.connection.saveData
 navigator.connection.downlink

 navigator.connection.addEventListener('change', fn);

ORIENTATION

@trishulgoel


 window.addEventListener('deviceorientation', handleOrientation);

 function handleOrientation(event) {
    const z = event.alpha; // Z-aixs | In degree in the range [0, 360]
    const x = event.beta;  // X-aixs | In degree in the range [-180, 180]
    const y = event.gamma; // Y-aixs | In degree in the range [-90, 90]
 }

WEB SHARE API*

@trishulgoel


 navigator.share({

 const device = await navigator.bluetooth.requestDevice({
      filters: [{
        namePrefix: 'Device-name',
        services: ['battery_service'] }],
 });

 const server = await device.gatt.connect();
 const service = await server.getPrimaryService('battery_service');
 const characteristic = await service.getCharacteristic('battery_level');

 characteristic.writeValue(new Uint8Array( .... )); // 'value' -> bytes
 characteristic.addEventListener('characteristicvaluechanged', fn);
