About Audio Chef

Audio Chef will be your new guide in the kitchen. Are you tired of going back to the recipe text to find where you left off? Despair no more! Using audio prompts, Audio Chef can guide you through a recipe while your hands do the cooking.


Below are some main features of the Audio Chef:

  • Tracks your place in the recipe after each command so that you can use your device for other tasks (e.g. timers, music)
  • Provides ingredient amounts during the recipe steps when measuring should occur
  • Reads the remaining steps in the recipe to allow you to look ahead and anticipate what comes next
