How to dictate in Wordfast Anywhere with Google Web Speech (with video) (by Dominique Pivard) | Translator Tools |
Google offers a Web Speech, a new service for which a demonstration is available in Chrome. The service is also available as Cloud Speech API for integration in other applications. Wordfast Anywhere is the first CAT tool that implements this new API. Using Google Web Speech is free, it requires no training or expensive microphone and it works with about 40 languages, far more than speech recognition solutions like Dragon Professional Individual or Windows Speech Recognition. Made for the 7th ABRATES Conference in Rio in June 2016, this video shows how to translate a short text in Brazilian Portuguese into French, by dictating in Wordfast Anywhere using Google Web Speech.
