This is the multi-purpose translator app from Microsoft, which doesn’t just use regular text but also your Lumia’s camera. Take a picture of a sign or menu and within seconds the app will translate it for you.
Of course, you can also translate by voice. Speak a phrase or word in your language and you’ll then hear the translation spoke back to you in a native accent. Clever!
Translator requires a data connection although you can also download language packs for offline use.
Using this app you can command your Lumia to play an album or playlist or genre simply by talking to it.
VoiceMusic has a few other nifty tricks too. You can ask for random playback and best of all – if you are listening to a song but you’re unsure what album it belongs to, you can ask that as well.
This app integrates the music voice controls into your Lumia’s core speech recognition feature. So when you’re using it, rather than opening the app, you only need to press and hold the Start button as outlined above.
You begin your commands with “Voice Music… Artist Adele/Album Revolver/Random Song”. Developer Rob Miles gives a demo of the app in the video above.
