Google Glass reportedly says no way to cussing
Google's new high-tech eye wear apparently won't recognize profane words.
Cursing, swearing, profanity, bad words, expletives, four-letter words...reportedly doesn't want any part of it.
Apparently, if users say any of this foul language while wearing the Geekwire. And, there's reportedly no way to turn this filter off at this time., the device simply won't recognize those words, according to
This isn't Google's first foray into censoring swear words. In fact, according to Geekwire, the no-profanity policy reaches throughout most all of Google's products and software that use the voice-to-text translation engine.
When the tech giant debuted the Nexus One cell phone in 2010, the built-in voice-to-text feature also . Whenever anyone entered a curse word into the phone, the word came out as "####."
At the time Google said the company censored such words because it didn't want the device to later transcribe the word incorrectly.
"We filter potentially offensive or inappropriate results because we want to avoid situations whereby we might misrecognize a spoken query and return profanity when, in fact, the user said something completely innocent," Google said.
CNET contacted Google for comment about profanity and Google Glass. We'll update the story when we get more information.
