Using voice search can be a snap but what goes into developing that kind of technology?
SmartPlanet recently visited Google's voice search team to find out. The company's technology currently covers 26 languages, including Zulu, Spanish, and Hindi. To search in 26 languages, the team needs 250,000 samples of local speech. Linne Ha travels the world helping collect them.
This video originally appeared on SmartPlanet with the headline "At Google, gathering language samples for better voice search."
