Turn your Raspberry Pi into a Translator with Speech Recognition and Playback #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Dave Conroy shared this project way back on his blog!
I get many requests from people who are still looking for cheap, easy, and fun project ideas for their Raspberry Pi’s, so I wanted to share this translator project I’ve been working on. With very little effort, we can turn this 35$ mini-computer into a feature rich language translator that not only supports voice recognition and native speaker playback, but also is capable of dynamically translating between 1000’s of language pairs, FREE! Even if you are not interested in building this exact translational tool, there are still many parts of this tutorial that might be interesting to you (speech recognition, text to speech, Microsoft/Google translation APIs). Just like the rest of my posts, this one starts with our shopping list. Most of my readers will probably already have most of these items around the house:
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
