Posted on Sep 3, 2014 in SpeechTrans News | 0 comments

Imagine a world where the barriers between the deaf and the hearing are gone. A world where conversations flow fluidly among those who hear sound, and those who don’t. Could that world become real in the near future? Back in June, a group of marketing students at Berghs School of Communication developed a concept video for a fictional product called Google Gesture. The product included a wearable wrist band and a mobile app that used electromyography to read the muscle movements of a deaf person doing sign language. The system then passed...

Talk To The Smartwatch, Cause The Phone Ain’t Listening

Posted on Sep 3, 2014 in SpeechTrans News | 0 comments

It seems odd that a speech translation company would build a smartwatch that mainly lets you answer your phone hands-free.

It even alerts you when you’ve stepped too...

What’s most interesting about SpeechTrans’ technology is that the...
