It has been recently reported that Google has launched voice recognition support for Urdu and 30 other languages, which are spoken by a cumulative 30 billion people. People around the world have been using Google’s voice recognition software for quite some time, but poor natural accent does affect the final results.
The move depicts that the search engine giant is making efforts to attract more people from Pakistan to use its platform. The voice typing feature is now accessible through Gboard for Android devices. To be more specific, you can search for anything on Google by speaking in your mother tongue and get the results in seconds. If typing text is a hassle for you then you can now simply dictate it and Gboard will translate your voice into the written script of that language.
If you’re interested in trying out the new feature, you need to install Gboard application from Google Play and set it as your default keyboard. Mentioned below are the steps that users need to follow in order to use the new feature.
- Tap and hold the space bar and select “Google Voice Typing” while using the Gboard.
- Then press the “Settings” icon and navigate to “Languages.”
- In “Languages,” deselect English and select Urdu as your primary mode of input.
- Then, simply speak what you want to write and Gboard will convert your voice into Urdu.
Moreover, you can also use voice recognition software to add emojis as well. Try saying something like “wink emoji” or “sad face emoji” and you will get the appropriate results.
