TGIF: The Trouble with Voice Recognition July 16, 2010

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Fun stuff, TGIF.

Fabio at Fidus interpres just posted this video on his blog today. I normally hate to repeat what other translators post,  but this is just too hilarious not to post. Plus, I wanted readers who don’t read his blog to see it (and if you aren’t reading his blog, why not??). The trouble with voice recognition software is that it has problems with accents – in this case Scottish. I love a good Scottish accent. I would marry a Scot in a second just for the accent (yes, it is true about Americans being suckers for accents). I have joked with my friends that I would pay a Scot to read the phone book for me. I just love how they sound. This video is hilarious, so I hope you enjoy it.

Love it! If it’s not Scottish, it’s crap…

It’s fantastic… It really made me laugh a lot!
