Google's voice based search

India is a country with the highest number of illiterates in the world which means most of the Indian citizens cannot directly access the web. Therefore Google is working on a voice search program in its R&D division in Hyderabad. India is the perfect testing ground with a wide diversity of spoken languages and styles. The system basically relies on getting the input in the form of voice and then converting it into text which will trigger the search engine and the results will be again converted back to voice for output. Voice recognition and response is a very challenging venture and still technology has to advance in this domain. The voice search project employs a unique machine learning algorithm that analyzes and adapts itself to the different pronunciation in course of time. The system will perform better as it gets used to the large number of dialects. If this system is successful in India there will be no problems in implementing it for the entire world.
