    I wonder how this app will get past accents and they way people speak in general. I tried a voice to text program and I had to talk pretty much like a news reporter with excellent pronunciation or I would get completely ass backwards words coming up. the program had me going from hilarity to a 'hulk smash' mood after not too long, and it cost several hundred $$$ for the full version.
    all I can say is I feel sorry for the google techs that have to get this thing working worldwide with all the slurring, drunken crazy people who rant about their goats on youtube.

    Actually google probably uses a really advanced algorithm for their speech recognition. They've got more computing power than they probably need so I expect that they're not using consumer grade software. As far as accents go, it'll probably be like most speech recognition programs and be based off the American dialect/accent, at least for English that is.
