NEC announces speech interpretation software for cell phones

NEC, the giant Japanese company that develops mobile devices, semiconductors and many other products, announced that it has readied an automatic speech interpretation software for cell phones.

Said software was designed in order to “quickly and accurately provide interpretation of words and phrases commonly associated with travel”.

More exactly, it can provide automatic interpretation, from both English to Japanese and Japanese to English, even if your phone isn’t connected to a network.   

 

The software is especially made for mobile CPUs and it features:

  • high precision voice recognition
  • translation engine accuracy
  • embedded mobile phone interpretation technology

For the moment, the new software has been tested only on NEC phones (sold in Japan), but the future will most probably see other phone brands embracing it.

    I use similar software in terms of functionality. The app is called Speereo Voice Translator, it's also based on speech recognition and it's also targeting tourists. Speereo SR is also available to use embedded. I wonder if NEC will beat it.
