CNN reports on a claimed breakthrough for speech-to-speech applications with Virtual Dictation.
“Virtual Dictation” can process voice dictation in real-time from over 7 languages including: Chinese (simplified and traditional), English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, and Spanish.
In addition, you can have the text generated from your voice, automatically converted into over 25 different languages.
Virtual Talking Phrases
The Virtual Talking Phrases contained over 6,000 pre-recorded common phrases. You say a word or phrase in English, and the server recognizes what you said and pronounces the other language translation of the word or phrase. It will also work in the reverse direction. When a foreign language is spoken, you will instantly hear the English translation of it.
