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.
