Translation, Automated Voice Reading Of Text Messages On Android Phone

You must have seen a number of android applications which perform real time text to speech conversion and other applications translate the text into a language that you desire. Google Translate is one such application that translates the text to other languages and is very popular among users. All these features are great but we always search for applications that can perform different tasks at the same time.

SMS Speaker Translating is the next interesting application from our Android section and will definitely be liked by you once you try it out. SMS Speaker Translating, as the name suggests converts the text present in SMS to speech. At the same time another feature of translating the text performs its function and displays the translated text just below the actual message. So the application solves two purposes:

  • First, it converts the text into a language of your choice and
  • Second it speaks out the translated text simultaneously

The application is available for free on Android Market and is simple in almost every aspect. Whether it’s the settings page or the very first screen, the app will not bring any complications along with it. The very first screen is where the user gets to choose between whether he or she wants to translate All SMS or Unread SMS. But before you start using it, one should make changes in the settings menu according to his or her liking.

In the settings one should first choose the language which the messages are supposed to be translated in, from the Your Language menu. The reading speed could also be set from slow to fast as per your convenience. The pitch is another very important where the pitch of speaking could be altered from slow to fast again.

To translate the desired message, simply scroll through all the messages select the message and hit the Read button present at the bottom of the screen where the translated message is displayed in text. The moment you hit the Read button, the app starts speaking out the message. The images below will explain how the message looks like. Since I chose French as the translating language, so the SMS text has been translated in the same.

Android File Manager Multiple Folder View

Android Market has a number of file explorer and managers such as Linda file Manager, Astro File Manager and many other but we have discovered a new file explorer which is the first ever explorer with two planes. This Dual pane explorer cum manager is known as Total Commander in beta stage and as of now it is available for free but unfortunately is not on the market.

Total Commander is also has a PC version and now the developers have released an android version of the same. Unlike like the PC version which is very easy to use, the application is a bit complicated on the interface but once you try it yourself you would simply love it. The two panes are switchable and at once only one pane is visible in phones but for tablets there is an option to two simultaneous panes. To switch to the other pane either swipe your finger on either side of tap on the three arrow button provided on the sides near the top.
