Microsoft Translator now integrates regional accents

Microsoft has announced an innovation that will significantly improve the usability of its translation app. Based on the principle that a language can be spoken differently depending on the region in which it is located, Microsoft Translator decided to provide regional accents.

Find out more in the video:

Now, by selecting a language in the application, you can select the part of the speech recognition language. The application can thus pronounce the sentences you are asked to translate by accepting the local pronunciation. If you submit a sentence to be translated into English, the translator can then use pronunciations such as British, American, Australian, Canadian, Irish.

Incidentally, the integration of different accents is not limited to the English language. Other languages ​​are also interested, such as Spanish (Spanish, Latin American countries, etc.), Arabic (Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Iraq, etc.) or French (France and Switzerland).

To customize the pronunciation of a language according to the country you are in, go to Language Options and enter the Voice Recognition Language section menu. This new feature has already been applied to all users Android And iOS.
