What the #####! Nexus One Censoring Swear Words
If you’re thinking of using your new Nexus One to curse out your ex with the speech-to-text function, you might want to think again.Â Reuters has discovered that the voice recognition feature converts curse words into a string of # symbols when rendered into text. Â Why? A spokesperson from Google says the feature is not at all about censoring users speech, but about making sureÂ swear words don’t accidentally appear in an e-mail to grandma. The spokesperson said,Â â€œWe filter potentially offensive or inappropriate results because we want to avoid situations whereby we might misrecognize a spoken query and return profanity when, in fact, the user said something completely innocent.â€
