As much as I love all smart gadgets and new technology, I’m rather slow when it comes to using them to the fullest and exploring their capabilities. (If given unlimited money, I think I’ll spend a substantial amount on the latest electronic gadgets/cameras etc but not know how to use them properly)
I recently discovered Google voice search (I know I’m slow!!) and I’m having fun with it.
I set mine in Korean and it’s quite fun trying to search google speaking in Korean 😀 😀 It can be a form of ‘speaking practice’ too. ^^ I’m amazed by the video above, hahaha but too bad I don’t speak 사투리 so I can’t try it out. I’ll take it with a pinch of salt though, I don’t think technology has evolved to the point where it can accurately detect our voices 100% of the time. Don’t be discouraged if the app did not process what you said. I’ve tried it a few times and it’s like a 60% success rate so far.
I did wonder whether it’s the app’s fault or my own pronunciation. But I’ve decided to trust the fact that humans understand my Korean and even though I don’t sound native, I must have sounded alright. 😀
The app works on both android and iphones (:
I haven’t come across any sites / books that teach 사투리. D: Someone should come up with something. I’m fascinated with the dialect! ^^
Today’s sunday and I’ve decided to stop piling on the stress and take a break. Those who have been following me on twitter should know that I’m being mentally tortured by all the statistics that I have to churn out for a research report. I still have no idea how to deal with the numbers, so I shall leave them aside while I write up the rest of the report.
I intend to make the fullest use of the summer break to improve my Korean. I need to.
