Google Translate Update Brings More Text-to-Speech Functionality


Recently posted from the Google Mobile Blogspot, the latest update of the Google Translate app for all Android devices running 2.1 and up includes better text-to-speech functionality. In this update, Google has enhanced the text-to-speech for 15 languages and added three new languages to the pack.

  • Japanese
  • Arabic
  • Korean

We took a closer look at this application to see how “real” the voices sounded, and to sum it up, we were very impressed. This update almost removes the computer generated monotone style voice and adds human like qualities such as smoother word transition and a better sense of tone. You can download the app below to see for yourself or just watch our video.
