Microsoft shows off an incredible new product

Microsoft revealed that it’s moving forward with its Skype voice and video call translation product, by demoing on stage a pre-beta version of Skype Translator. The service will allow users to talk to each other via Skype in their own language and speech will be translated on the fly.

Initially, Skype Translator will be available only on Skype for Windows and only support a handful of languages, although the company plans to add support for many other devices, including mobile phones, in the future and additional languages will be added.
