Dear Prozians working with the Arabic language,

Is there to your knowledge any speech recognition software that is suitable for Arabic?

Anyone among you is using a speech recognition software?

I would like to hear your positive and negative experiences.

Thank you

I have been using speech recognition software since 1998. Two brand names are generally known in this domain. IBM Gold (which has been continued for some time now) and Dragon Naturally Speaking. I have used the latter for quite some time, and I can say in all honesty that it does catch on with training. I mean when you use it extensively, it gets accustomed to your voice and performance is thus significantly enhanced. However, as a general rule, I am inclined to think that the speech recognition technology still has a long way to go. For the time being, it cannot replace the typing skill if you re looking to rely on it in handling large translation projects.

For arabic?? Jul 3, 2007

HEllo Noha,

Finally, this is the second time I post this question. icon_smile.gif

I wanted to know if you encourage me to invest in Dragon naturally, I've seen so many positive review for English, French and other languages and wanted to know if any translator into arabic uses it.
when you say with time this mean how much few weeks or few months (I know it ay depend on how frequently one uses it, but lets say if you use it daily).

Thank you very much for your response,

I hope so Sep 2, 2007

Dear Zeina,

If you tried any Arabic speech recognition software with at least 70% accuracy please tick me. I am concerned too but as long as I know investments in this field are miserable and I know a company working on this 8 years ago with no remarkable results.

Kind regards
