iPhone users can simply speak and get the translation spoken back in just seconds
Helsinki, Finland, May 24, 2010 – Cellictica Ltd. today announced that the company’s Trippo™ VoiceMagix speech-to-speech translator application for iPhone™ is now available on the Apple App Store in the U.S. The Trippo VoiceMagix app allows users to speak freely, let the app recognize what was said, get it translated in a selected language and spoken back to them in just seconds. The translated sentence is also presented in text with appropriate character set.
Trippo VoiceMagix’s unique functionality marks a fundamental shift in communication while travelling. With innovative speech technology powered by Nuance Communications, the app leverages the same core speech recognition behind the company’s renowned Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search Apps for iPhone, as well as Nuance Vocalizer that enables text-to-speech translation readout.
“Cellictica’s focus is to create a dynamic user experience through our practical and useful apps. With Trippo VoiceMagix we are exceeding even our own expectations in usability. Thanks to world leading technologies from partners like Nuance, we are enabling magical moments for everyone,” said Kimmo Sainio, CEO Cellictica.
“Through the Nuance Mobile Developer Program a growing number of app developers such as Cellictica are taking advantage of speech technology ‘in the cloud’ to bring to market innovative apps and services across a broad range of platforms and devices. Bringing speech-to-speech translation functionality to the masses represents a tremendous global market opportunity. Cellictica’s innovative approach to language translation with the Trippo VoiceMagix app is solving a very timely need for today’s increasingly global society,” said Michael Thompson, senior vice president and general manager, Nuance Mobile.
Available for immediate download in the Apple App Store in the U.S., the Trippo VoiceMagix app currently supports U.S. English speech input as well as speech and text output for more than 20 languages including Chinese, Dutch, Hindi, Italian, French, Portuguese, Russian, German, Spanish, Thai and more.
Trippo VoiceMagix has received awards such as eComm (dotOpen) App Award. And, Trippo Mondo, the previous generation translation app from Cellictica, has been downloaded close to two million times globally in more than 200 countries and garnered accolades such as the Samsung Developer Contest 2009 ‘Gold Award’.
Trippo VoiceMagix also runs on other mobile platforms such as Android™, Windows Mobile®, Java (J2ME) and BlackBerry®, and will be made available in major app stores from handset manufacturers as well as select carriers’ app stores in the near future.
