Google Voice Now Able to Detect Javanese, Sundanese

TEMPO.CO, JakartaGoogle has recently included two of Indonesia`s local language, Javanese and Sundanese, into its voice recognition technology. It is the result of Google’s partnership with several universities such as University of Gadjah Mada, Sanata Dharma University, and the Indonesia University of Education (UPI).

“Javanese and Sundanese voice command can be used in several Google apps, such as Google Translate, and Android’s Gboard,” said Technical Program Manager Daan van Esch in the press release received by Tempo today, September 12.

According to Esch, voice command user’s growth rate in Indonesia is 50 percent above the global scale growth rate, which is the reason why Google decided to present a technology that can reach a larger market of Indonesian.

Google’s machine learning technology enabled them to add Javanese and Sundanese. The machine meticulously compiles examples of conversations from real users and asked them to read out the phrase generally used. The process trains Google engine to grasp voices and words in a new language while elevating its accuracy level.
