National Institute of Information and Communications Technology(NICT)

VoiceTra is a speech translation app that translates your spoken words into different languages.
VoiceTra, known for its accuracy and precision, is developed by the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) and is available for free. As of August 2019, the app supports as many as 31 languages. Simply speak, and the app will recognize your speech, translate, and play the translation results in audio. (Speech input is available with 18 languages and audio output is available with 16 languages)

The most distinctive feature of VoiceTra is its simple operation. Just select the languages you wish to translate from/into, press the microphone button, speak, and the app will automatically translate what you said. The translation results are translated back into your language and also displayed at the bottom; this allows you to check if what you have input is being translated with the intended meaning.

In addition, the quick response time allows users to have a smooth conversation and easily overcome the language barrier. Why not try out VoiceTra for yourself and communicate with people from all over the world?
