Hi Edouard,

That's interesting, let us know how it goes! I wonder how friendly is
android's API regarding recording and if the speech-to-text capabilities are
available for non-google apps.

For now, I would say verify the presence of the file but be aware that this
will change so try to encapsulate it so that changing will be easy.

Good luck and keep us posted!
