With dozens of apps available to perform text-to-text translation, it has become a thing of the past. TalkToMe is a cool app for Android phones that take translation to the next level. Just say something in English and the app will translate it to desired foreign language. Not only that, the app will actually speak the translated version back to you.
So the app actually takes your speech, converts it into text, translates it and then converts it into speech again. This is fantastic technology and highly useful for people whi often find themselves in a foreign country struggling with the language. The languages supported right now include Spanish, French, German, Italian and UK or USA English. The app is complete free of cost and can be downloaded fron the Android market place.
Imagine yourself traveling to a remote place in Italy and not knowing enough Italian to ask for directions. With TalkToMe, you don’t need to learn a new language, you just need to know how to use the app. Here is a short video review for TalkToMe courtesy of AndroidApps:
