Google Translate Will Soon Be Able To Transcribe Lengthy Speeches In Real-Time

Google Translate will soon be able to transcribe lengthy lectures and translate it in real-time in another language. At an event in San Francisco, the company showed some of its upcoming artificial intelligence projects including this future feature.

Google has already introduced interpreter mode for its app that was only for the conversations but now lengthy speeches will be interpreted. The transcribe mode will allow users to attending lectures in any other supported language or watch foreign-language movies without subtitles and instead know what is being said in real-time.

At the time of launch, the feature will work with an internet connection and the translation will be on Google’s server instead of on personal devices. It will only produce results with live audio that will be captured through phone speakers.

As per reports, the feature will continuously analyze the words being captured, and the translation will change according to the context of the sentences and the punctuation used. Initially, there might be some weird translations but with time it will improve, as Google said it learns from the transcription of people.

Currently, the feature is tested with languages like Spanish, German, French, etc. There is no set date but is expected to be rolled out in the next few months and will be available on Android devices, first.
