2 Upload the image file to Dropbox

  1. Create the audio file by recording the speech
  2. Upload the audio recording to Dropbox
  3. Send the Whatsapp message to Person 2 (mixing and publishing to youtube) “File are ready for download and further processing”
  4. Wait for Person2 to create themp4 video file
  5. Send the Youtube video link to the general public using facebook messenger
  6. Process complete

Just ideas.

Person 1:

  1. For scripted or automating image and text work, we used ImageMagick. In case you need to know if ImageMagick can put text on images, read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ImageMagick
  2. For this step of uploading files and Whatsapp I'd turn to PYTHON. Python can do this. Remember my reply is to share the tools I would use to accomplish the automation goals. It is not an offer to write the applications.
  3. Python can post to Facebook so again my choice of tools would be Python.

Person 2:

  1. This one can be unclear. There are many command line tools out there to edit, produce videos and with Python we can tie it all together. Python again has many skills at upload and downloading.
  2. Again, Python would be my choice.

Thanks! Are you talking about the web application or desktop program ?

commented: Since Python can run on a server, most computers under a lot of OSes, my answer is both. +15
