How to Create a Speech Recognition App in React JS with Copy to Clipboard Functionality

Speech-to-Text Converter with Copy Feature in React JS: A Step-by-Step Guide

Are you looking to build a web app that can transcribe speech to text and allow users to copy the transcribed text to the clipboard? In this tutorial, you'll learn how to create a speech recognition app with copy to clipboard functionality using React JS, the popular front-end JavaScript library.

To make things easier, we'll be using two powerful and easy-to-use npm packages: react-speech-recognition for speech recognition and react-use-clipboard for copying the transcribed text to the clipboard. By the end of this tutorial, you'll have a working app that you can extend and customize to your specific needs.

React JS Source Code

Let's go through this code step by step:

1: We import the useSpeechRecognition hook from react-speech-recognition and the useClipboard hook from react-use-clipboard.

2: In the App function, we use the useSpeechRecognition hook to initialize the speech recognition feature and get the transcribed text in the transcript variable. We also use the resetTranscript function to reset the transcript if needed.

3: We use the useClipboard hook to enable copying the transcribed text to the clipboard. The isCopied variable holds the state of whether the text has been copied or not, and the setCopied function copies the text when called.

4: In the JSX code, we display the transcript variable in a Div element, and provide Three buttons: one to stop & Start the transcript and the third one to copy the transcript to the clipboard.
