Hi community, I am Uday and like many of you I am looking to participate in GSoC this summer. I am a graduate computer science student at Arizona State University, AZ, USA. I have experience developing applications using Node.JS and MySQL. I have worked on some computer vision projects and some deep learning projects. I believe a summer spent working on an innovative project for Joplin would be well worth it. Even more, Joplin is one of my favourite apps personally and my motivation to improve it comes from my own experience as a user.
There are a couple of features that I as a user would love to see in Joplin, like an improved search ( https://joplinapp.org/gsoc2020/ideas.html#7-search) and an OCR (https://joplinapp.org/gsoc2020/ideas.html#5-ocr-support).
Thinking about inclusion of everyone, I think there can be a need for alternative formats for the notes, which students with learning disabilities can utilize. For instance, I know a couple of students who feel it is easier for them to learn when they hear the content rather than just reading. So, text to audio can be one nice feature to have for notes that are difficult to understand.
