After adding the promised language selection features to http://code.google.com/p/voicetogoog/ in preparation for its second (0.2) release at http://store.ovi.com/content/195998 , I decided to show-off what happens when you get Google's voice-to-text system speaking in a foreign accent. A VoiceToGoog hack.

Sorry about the shaky video and bad focus -- my son's Flip camera doesn't do close-focus very well, and I still haven't figured out how to get synchronized sound w/ the nice HD-resolution direct screen-capture technique discussed in http://forum.meego.com/showthread.php... and/or http://bugs.developer.nokia.com/Commu... ... but hey, that's what the next version is for... this is a "release early, release often" video :-)

NB: I had my father http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meinhard... (RIP) test some of the foreign language input and accidentally triggered "Play Selection" so you can hear him at http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=...
