Google Translate for iPhone can speak in your local accent

Google Translate has added speech output in local versions of multiple languages, including English, Bengali, French and Spanish.

Google says that the region selected will be used for both speech input and output, meaning that it is also more likely to understand what has been said when the user is not American.
Regional options are also available for three other languages.

  • Bengali: Bangladesh & India
  • French: France & Canada
  • Spanish: Mexico & Spain

Android has included these speech options for a while. It’s hard to knock this addition, though. Even if you don’t have trouble with variations, it’s good to hear translations that reflect local cultures instead a one-size-fits-all response.

You can download Google Translate app  from the App Store.
