Microsoft SkypeTruVoice

Microsoft today announced a new feature for Skype called TruVoice. Skype TruVoice allows translation of Skype to Skype video calls in real-time, using your natural voice. With this, you can have a video call with someone who speaks a different language, with real time translation! This feature will also eliminate the need for translator when you are communicating with people who speak different languages.

Skype is doing this using a combination of speech recognition technology and natural language processing.

Here’s how you can use this feature:

  • To activate it on a call, just go to your three dots “More” menu and select “Translate”. Skype will guide both participants to start translating your conversation.
  • Translations are available for a number of different languages, including English, Spanish, French, German, Chinese, and more.

Skype TruVoice (Real-time translations with natural voice) will be coming to group video calls and Telephony in the next months.
