Building an Audio Waveform API

A session at FranceJS.in(Toulouse)

  • Thomas Parisot

Sunday 24th November, 2013

11:30am to 12:55pm (PMT)

The BBC has years of audio archives and six hours long programmes to display to editors and journalists.

How do you visualise an audio programme? How to provide a millisecond precision editing tool in the browser?

This is a journey in making a visually simple Canvas editing tool: the context, the stack, the UX process, what we faced, what we learned and what we open sourced.
