To gain some ideas for the mobile app showdown tomorrow, I revisited the previous conversations about mobile app on this blog. One interesting idea
from my colleagues Jo and Faisal, is to use mobile phone as a real-time translation device for language learning. It occurs to me that Dragon NaturallySpeaking
, a software transcribing your talk into texts, might make this idea come true. This software is now available in several languages including English, German, French, Dutch, Spanish and Italian.
If the mobile version of this software is available and is connected to the language translation web page, the mobile device will become a real-time translator. However, the high system requirements of this software might be the biggest technical challenge.
