Press the Big Yellow Button - speech recognition for (nearly) everyone
Speech Recognition has primarily benefited languages with a major market value, such as English, German, French and so on.
With the advent of mobile devices and affordable access to sophisticated speech recognition technologies, it was a merely logical step to adopt them to our work as translators.
This talk focuses on how to use simple, low cost solutions that provide extremely high quality speech recognition in a wide variety of languages, Portuguese included, for users of all computer and mobile device platforms.
