Microsoft has slowly been growing the list of languages supported by its text to speech function in Microsoft Translator, which lets you play translated text in its native accent. This week, that list grew a bit more, with six new languages joining the fray. That brings the total number of supported text to speech languages to 36.
Here's a look at what's new:
Text to speech can come in handy if you're learning how to pronounce words, or if you're traveling to a new country and need to ask for directions or some other sort of assistance. All you have to do is type a word or phrase in your language to have it translated to the target language, then press the speaker button to have the translated text played out loud in its native accent.
According to Microsoft, the six new languages are available now in the Translator app for Android, as well as the Microsoft Translator Text and Speech APIs. Support for the new languages is expected to come to the Translator app for iOS, Microsoft Translator live, and Translator for Bing "soon," Microsoft says.
