page turning by smile
#1
Hello Mike,

I read that there is an API from google for android apps that recognizes whether a face is smiling. Would that be a solution for page turning for an organist who cannot use hand or pedals??

https://cloud.google.com/vision/docs/face-tutorial

Thanks a lot

It's an interesting idea, but consider this statement on that page:

This tutorial uses billable components of Cloud Platform, including:

Google Cloud Vision API
Use the Pricing Calculator to generate a cost estimate based on your projected usage. New Cloud Platform users might be eligible for a free trial.

So that means a) it requires internet access all the time to even leverage the functionality, and b) there is a fee associated with every use of the feature. I don't think it's a good fit for MobileSheetsPro unfortunately.

Looks like I spoke too soon. It appears through Google Play Services, there is a face tracking capability that can detect smiles. I found this for sample code as well: https://github.com/googlesamples/android...aceTracker

So turning pages by moving your head left or right or by smiling could be an option.

Sounds good - do you see a chance to implement it in the nearer future?? Would be great for me and all of my colleagues, who play the organ. Also for me as accompagnist for singers - often my left foot is busy with the left piano pedal and so I can't turn pages Wink

I have a developer who is volunteering a small amount of his time and he expressed interest on working on this, so yes, it may be implemented in the near future.

There has been an app with this function already . PiaScore on iOS . But they got rid of that function again because it didn't work properly. But maybe you can do it better.
