Ford's Voice Recognition in 17 Accents

Ford's Voice Recognition
There are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of languages and dialects in the world today that voice recognition has become a challenging option. From the distinctive twang of Scouse to the lilt of Bavarian German, voice recognition systems typically find it difficult to recognize words spoken in regional accents.

This can prove particularly troublesome when using the technology while driving, so Ford has come up with a solution. The car maker has developed a voice-activated system which learns how a driver speaks and can respond to local dialects with ease.

The technology has been built into Ford's Sync systems and is powered by software built by Nuance.

Ford Sync was first introduced to Europe in 2012 and it has since been extended throughout the Ford range.
