Microsoft Released Skype Translator Preview
At last, Microsoft has come up with what it has been trying for years. Few days back, it announced Skype Translator. People who have signed up for preview in November, can start video and voice chat in English and Spanish. But, this works in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 Technical Preview. Both Spanish and English can be spoken in native languages and it has the intelligence of converting it in to your language. As, of now only Spanish and English are supported.
Apart from this, instant messaging through Skype can be done in 40 different languages. Skype is really trying to connect people by removing the hurdle of language. Data which would help for recognizing the speech and machine translation comes from various inputs. If it was used by many, then it gets addicted to the accent and regular words that are being used. Skype translator keeps learning by recording the conversations and by analyzing them.
Here is the sample video released by Skype officially.
