api – Is there a way to differentiate speech and music?

I’m making an application that could really benefit from having a way to differentiate speech and music.

So far I went looking into voice recognition, but I don’t really see anything that differentiates music from speech, but just is able to identify the words. And while I could use this technically to detect whether or not it’s not music, and it is speech, due to the fact that if there are words it isn’t music unless it’s a song. But given how much of music is song, I don’t think it would be an effective method unless it’s coupled with something. Besides, I couldn’t really find an open source “api” for voice recognition.

Next thing I considered is pitch accuracy and duration, if I take the current frequencies and run them against the musical note frequencies with a buffer of course, I could? ineffectively? say that, if it’s consistently aligned with note frequencies value. That it’s music. The problem with that is, besides the looming faults, that, how can I say when it stops being music and starts being speech, because I’m recognizing patterns.

If you have any ideas please let me know, also if there’s already a way to do this with like a plugin, framework, api, imports, forgive my lack of syntactical know how.

what would be the best language to program this in?

OH!. I also saw an article on Speech/Music Discrimination and then found this on github, if anyone knows more about this, please explain it to me

Trumps MT Rushmore speech was the Most watched TV event in history?

It was one of the most sickening displays of divisiveness the country has seen. He took a national holiday celebration and turned it into a campaign rally for himself. Bad mouthing everyone but those who support him and barely touching upon the over 130,000 covid deaths in the US since Feb.

You enjoyed it along with other trump suck ups but the world once again saw him for what he is. A lying, dangerous POS.

azure – Sentiment analysis for speech in MS Teams meetings (classrooms to be more specific)

I’m looking for a solution that could be used with MS Teams for Education that could be used for sentiment analysis in real time during classroom discussions in synchronous on-line learning. I assume Azure’s Speech to Text could capture what is said but not sure what tools are available for the analysis.
Comments by individual students are not as important as gauging the overall sentiment in the classroom and ideally it would go past simply positive/negative to detecting mood, words or phrases that are being used frequently, lapses between questions and answers, etc.
Ideally the data could then be fed into Power BI for providing real-time indicators of what is happening in the class.

Any suggestions?

Discussion Time – Dedicated to Free Speech | Forum Promotion

Discussion Time is a general discussion/debate forum that is dedicated to freedom of speech. It was founded as an alternative to a particular website that stifled honest debate and discussion.

Freedom of Speech is so important, especially when many websites ban you for unpopular opinions, no matter how harmless they are.

You are free to speak your mind. We, as a forum, will not ban you no matter how controversial your opinion is. We expect people to self moderate – use common sense, basically.

You don’t even have to sign up. Guests are free to participate in discussions and post new discussions. However there are members only sections that guests will not be able to participate in.

Currently we have pictionary style forum games where if you guess correctly enough times you will win forum prizes and monetary vouchers for Amazon.


Why are Trump and his supporters so fragile and sensitive that they think “black lives matter” is hate speech?

Matthew 7:15-17

Beware of false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.…

Reddit just banned r/The_Donald, the largest pro-Trump subreddit, as it cracks down on hate speech and targeting, do you agree?

Of course I agree.

That subreddit and others like it are toxic echo chambers that do nothing positive for humanity.

Reddit’s ban on such subreddits is probably overdue and should be applauded by all, regardless of which side of the political fence you sit.

applescript – Use Google speech to text instead of Apple’s

Google currently has much higher quality speech transcription. You can try it easily by going to doc.new and pressing Cmd-Shift-S and talking. Compare to using the built in system from Apple (pressing Fn twice).

Is there any way to somehow use this instead of the built in transcription, e.g. with a keyboard shortcut?

Ideally there would be a good way to do this, but if that doesn’t work, hacky is the next best thing. An AppleScript or Hammerspoon script that instantly pops up a Google Docs window, and then inserts the result is better than nothing.

Given that things like this https://dictation.io/speech exist, it seems like it should be possible to at least have an extension that can interface with other applications to enable dictation input, but I haven’t found any yet.

Was that an Amazing Speech by Trump or What?

Absolute BS! All he is doing is inciting more violence and more unrest, even police chiefs in major cities are telling him to shut his mouth and start showing real leadership, because this is NOT it!!!

But what could we expect, once again he thinks he is an expert, when in fact he is a know nothing jerk….just like you are!!!

Threatening to put this down with maximum force is only going to create more division, more mistrust and continued civil unrest! 

Pentagon staff and even White House aids don’t think he is up to the job, but moreover they are realizing one thing, he is trying to manipulate this for political advantage no matter what the cost to civilian and police officers lives is, and here you are, the typical dumb idiot that he is pandering to!!!

why is free speech continually under attack when it comes to gender studies-related topics…?

In a previous answer to one of your questions, an answerer stated feminism relies on interpretivism but doesn’t hold up to positivism.  Essentially what that means is feminists have an agenda, but their interpretation doesn’t hold up under scrutiny.  Therefore they want to censor relevant facts.

For example, actual, objective studies of the gender wage gap prove factors other than discrimination to be the major reasons women earn less, but that doesn’t suit feminist agenda.

Feminists talk about male privilege, but if one actually looks at laws that provide sex based privileges, they almost all privilege females, not males.

Feminists claim cultural marxism is a myth, that it doesn’t and never has existed, yet a quick google search will reveal books written about cultural marxism and even journaled articles written by cultural marxists.

It’s that way with almost every single feminist issue.  Their agenda simply doesn’t hold up to scrutiny so they try their best to hide the facts that allow people to see this.   Flooding the internet with false information and censorship are two ways they do this.   

Obama is giving a speech tonight bashing Trump instead of leading the fight against pandemics that he failed when he was president?

Obama was faced with H1N1. He reacted promptly and kept the mortality rate to some 12,000. Trump dithered, called COVID-19 a hoax designed to make him look bad (as if he needed help), lied, spewed happy talk, went golfing, and held political rallies. The death toll is over 80,000 and rising. Obama left a “playbook” for dealing with epidemics; Trump ignored it. Obama created a group to deal with epidemics. Trump got rid of it. Tell me again, who is the failure?
