Microsoft Demonstrates Vocal Translator

Microsoft Demonstrates Vocal Translator

Postby jdalecold » Sun Mar 11, 2012 9:51 pm

Experimental programs that use speech recognition to perform real-time language translations have been kicking around for years now, but Microsoft took the idea to a new level at its TechFest 2012 event last week.

Like other translators, the software developed by Microsoft Research allows you to talk to it in your native tongue and send it out the speaker of a device as another language -- Spanish, French, Chinese, or such.

It's an old joke, but I'm reminded of what supposedly happened the first time they tried this:

You say: "The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."

Translator says: "The vodka is good, but the meat is rotten"
