Lyndhurst, NJ (MMD Newswire) May 25, 2012 -- SpeechTrans Inc., a leader in language translation software, smashes language barriers, enabling two or more people to communicate in a variety of language pairs without the need of an interpreter through their smart phone. Their Patent Pending speech-to-speech (S2S) language translation software allows people to carry out real-time conversations in more than 20 languages using their smart phones and tablets.
Their app, which is powered by the years of voice recognition development of Nuance Communications, Inc., is available for the Apple suite of products, Android as well as for Blackberry operating platforms. SpeechTrans, powered by Nuance, eliminates language barriers while providing the highest accuracy of speech recognition in the marketplace. SpeechTrans is proud to announce Photo Translation with the addition of the Nuance OmniPage Cloud Conversion technology.
SpeechTrans's mission is to create a universal translator that can be used to allow people to communicate without boundaries - similar in concept to technology shown on the science fiction program Star Trek, where speech-to-speech translation takes place effortlessly, in real time, in any language. SpeechTrans first incorporated Dragon Mobile speech technology from Nuance into their mobile application so your natural speech can be effortlessly recognized and then translated. Now they have added OmniPage Cloud Conversion technology to their newest version to capture and recognize pictures of anything with text for immediate translation.
SpeechTrans, which recently won "The Peoples Choice" and "Company Most Likely to Succeed" Awards at the March 2012 New Jersey Technology Council Conference, is proud to announce the addition of the OmniPage Cloud Conversion technology as a FREE update to existing SpeechTrans Ultimate users. However, what makes us most proud of what we have developed is the following testimonial:
"Your app saved my patient's life". When Maryland Firefighter/Medic was treating a Spanish speaking patient suffering from a Diabetic Coma, SpeechTrans came to the rescue. Unable to get an interpreter on Dispatch, I used SpeechTrans to communicate. He was able to determine the patient's medical History using SpeechTrans, thereby avoiding the standard treatment which would have resulted in a Fatal Allergic Reaction." -- Alex Hamburger
"SpeechTrans has always been on the forefront of eliminating language barriers. The addition of Nuance OmniPage Cloud Conversion technology was the logical evolution and will provide tremendous value to our service. Speech-to-speech language translation has been our core product offering. With the addition of Image capture and translation, people will not only be able to converse with others who do not speak the same language, but will have a more robust user experience by also being able to translate billboards, menus and foreign business documents with our user friendly image capture technology," said John Frei, SpeechTrans Chief Executive Officer.
Nuance Communications Inc. will hold its Document Imaging Developers Conference (http://www.regonline.com/did2012) from May 14 to 16 in Las Vegas in order to invite developers, such as those at SpeechTrans, to learn how to create fully OCR-enable applications for almost any platform or device in just one day.
"Photo translation from SpeechTrans is a terrific example of how developers can quickly and easily leverage Nuance OmniPage Cloud Service to add powerful Optical Character Recognition capabilities to applications targeted for businesses or consumers," said Jeffrey Segarra, director of imaging product management for Nuance. "The Document Imaging Developers Conference is the ideal opportunity for developers to learn how to enable their projects with a minimum of work by tapping OmniPage Cloud Service."
SpeechTrans is available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android and Blackberry devices as well as on Feature Phones and Landlines with our InterprePhone service.
