See Say Translate to Speech
by: FineLineLabs • 107
Travel with See Say! Image to Speech translator, take a picture and translate!
An app for android that takes a picture of words in ANY language, and speaks the text aloud, in English:)
Supports any alphabetical language (a-z characters).
I was inspired by a Ted Talk that mentioned that not too long ago, this technology was available for around $10,000.00, for the visually impaired. Technology has come so far that I am able to write this app and release it for under five bucks :)
Similar to See Say - Picture to Speech, but the image recognition will translate from other languages to English.
Also, gives option of Speech or Text, in case you don't want your phone to speak (ie: in a university lecture:)
GREAT for traveling! Imagine you are in a country and don't understand the language, you can take a picture of a menu at a restaurant, and the items are read back to you in English!
Also, for the source code, goto the See Say - Picture to Speech app, the code is listed in the description if you are so inclined to compile it yourself:)
