03. The "No Pain" way to speak a foreign language - Emime

Speaking a foreign language has always been a problem for the dyslexic individual, whether it has been in the French class in school or ordering food in Greece. But now it seems that there may be an alternative on the horizon. The Emime project, a collaboration led by the University of Edinburgh and includes Nokia as a partner aims to take the words of the speaker, translate them and then use the users own voice to speak back the words. Is this the ultimate Babelfish? For further details watch the Emine project website.
