Google Voice input on Android now supports Korean
Google Korea yesterday announced the inclusion of Korean language as the only other language in the Voice input support on Android. Google said it will improve voice recognition in conducting searches that can also be used for Gmail, Google Talk, SMS and Google Maps services.
Search Engine giant said that Korean was selected as the second language only because tests showed that it could be used with a high level of accuracy.
“Google is committed to improve the quality for end-users with regular updates as the Korean voice input is another step towards Google’s long-term goal to make speech an acceptable and useful input modality for any mobile device,” said Mike Schuster, head of voice recognition research at Google.
According to Google, its new voice input service will only be available on phone running Google’s Android 2.2 or more.
