Google launches Korean Voice Search
[googleresearch.blogspot.com]


On June 16th, we launched our Korean voice search system. Google Search by Voice has been available in various flavors of English since 2008, in Mandarin and Japanese since 2009, and in French, Italian, German and Spanish just a few weeks ago.


The article goes on to describe some of the challenges they encountered making a Korean speech recognition system:
  • Developing a Korean dictionary
  • Korean word boundaries
  • Pronunciation exceptions
  • Encoding issues
  • Script ambiguity
  • Recognizing rare words
  • Every speaker sounds different
