Hi everybody!

I've spent a day on the last long weekend and wrote a simple voice translator with speech-to-text and text-to-speech capabilities. Truly, I did it because I was confused a little of this topic: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1352006 . OP treats his app too "top-secret and classified", and put a lot of limitations and restrictions for XDA members. But that kind of app is very simple; there is no know-how or some proprietary technologies involved: all apps (of this kind) are using undocumented Google's speech-to-text and text-to-speech APIs (but very well documented on internet forums! )
Also, AFAIK, most of 'em are using FlacBox project's code but without reference to project page and author's copyright!

I'd like to announce a completely free application (but ad-based); everybody are welcome to beta-test (marketplace version will be released soon after XDA slight beta test).
App has no limitations or restrictions but if you can't hear translation or recognition is not working for your language, it's not a my fault but just not supported by Google's APIs.





Your comments and feature requests are welcome here; don't forget to post a bug reports too Also, grammar and lexical corrections are very welcome (English is not my native language).

Download and sideload Voice translator v 1.1.0 from attachment!

Update: version 1.1.0 added. Changes: slight UI and performance improvements

Update: VoiceTranslator updated to version 1.3: various bugs are fixed, it loads faster now; added nice new icons.

P.S. If you really wanna thank me, see my signature Dropbox is a great service, and I'd like to expand my free box size up to 16Gb. It's also good for you and you may be sure: I've never had any spam or troubles with dropbox!

It's not my bugs but Google's Try desktop Chrome with microphone - u'll get same results.

P.S. BTW, do you know: Google's translator already knows an "albansky" (you know what I mean - for other's it's a Russian specific internet slang) language Try to pronounce: "V Babrujsk, givotnoe" or "Afftar ggot"

I understand now why you were up my butt about our App, we both basically have the same thing.

Nevertheless, good job ;]

"No" and "yes" I wrote this app yesterday, just after finishing reading your topic. I was a little confused: you are drastically promoted your app on the one hand but refused of beta testers on the other hand... XDA isn't free beta-testers place or advertising area; it's a community of enthusiasts and homebrew developers. So I decide to give a chance to "unlucky" XDA members to get the same app for free, without limitations and restrictions. BTW, I can afford to spend 10 hours of my time for community needs (but my wife disagrees with me! )
