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...read more
It seems odd that a speech translation company would build a smartwatch that mainly lets you answer your phone hands-free. But this wearable device, the Bluetooth Wristwatch Band, can also sync up with the company’s smartphone and tablet translation app via its recently released proprietary API, making it half phone, half foreign communicator. The wristband, which launched with little fanfare in March, also tells the time, lets you listen to music and access the contacts from your phone or tablet. It even alerts you when you’ve stepped too...read more
In Douglas Adams’ “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy,” there’s a way to understand anything that is said to you in any language; all you have to do is stick a fish in your ear … The Babel Fish is small, yellow, leech-like, and probably the oddest thing in the Universe. It feeds on brainwave energy absorbing all unconscious frequencies and then excreting, telepathically, a matrix formed from the conscious frequencies and nerve signals picked up from the speech centres of the brain. The practical upshot of...read more
SpeechTrans Inc., a major provider of advanced translation technology, recently introduced its patent-pending application programming interface: SpeechOne API.

It enables accurate voice recognition, transcription and translation on any device, in real-time.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — Wouldn’t it be nice to go just about anywhere on earth and talk to anyone in their own language? Well, now there’s an app for that, and Seven on Your Side has put it to the test. Yan Auerbach spoke with us in a Skype interview about his translation app, SpeechtTrans. “It lets you speak in one language and then it will translate and speak out loud in any other language,” he said. Forty-two languages and dialects in all. The app speaks out loud and translates on the screen, too. And it does it...read more

Following up on an earlier article where I talked about SpeechTrans making waves over Microsoft’s May 27th announcement at the Re/code conference about Skype’s upcoming language translator service, SpeechTrans has now provided their own HP Discovery demo. The, almost 4 minute, demo is pretty impressive, showing how SpeechTrans Translator doesn’t just work over IP networks, but also works with standard phones to allow diverse languages to communicate. What’s most interesting about SpeechTrans’ technology is that the...read more
It looks like Microsoft beat someone to the punch with the recent unveiling of Skype Translator at the Re/code conference. And, this may be the first time in a long time that Microsoft has been able to trump competitors with a technology reveal. However, not necessarily a competitor, SpeechTrans is reported to have been doing real-time translation for years already and based on communications today is wanting to remind us that the company’s product is touted as the “world’s most advanced translator.” SpeechTrans is a...read more
