At the end of November, we ran our very first Community Collaboration Hackathon with Learn Build Teach, a Discord community for web developers of all skill levels. This ten-day hackathon showcased some exciting ways to use Deepgram. And now, let’s unveil the winners!
Grand Prize Winner
We love a practical project that helps us to make the most out of content. Not only does Aadarsh Kannan, capture that in this project, but he also adds features to his project to deepen the user’s understanding and capabilities with YouTXT. YouTXT uses Deepgram’s Speech-to-Text API to provide transcripts for YouTube videos submitted via a YouTube link.

YouTXT is an app that transcribes any YouTube video and provides some additional features like summary, keywords, Transcript translation, video search, and a markdown editor to edit the transcription.
We’re big fans of using developer skills to solve a problem, and that’s where this team started. Initially, they envisioned a Virtual Table Top transcription concept, to allow virtual D&D campaigns to be more accessible. With many playing Dungeons & Dragons in a Discord Voice channel, it made more sense to create a speech-to-text bot for Discord to enable anyone using a Discord Voice channel to be able to use Deepgram’s speech-to-text capabilities to provide transcripts.
This Discord bot can Join, Transcribe, and Leave. We love how useful this could be for accessibility, note taking for meetings, and more.
