Voice recognition technology is now increasingly sophisticated. Features such as Google’s voice assistant can recognize Android user commands in multiple languages. In China, the Logitech Voice M380 comes with a similar feature.
As the name implies, this mouse has a special feature, namely Speech Input. Powered by Speech and Machine Translation technology and Baidu Brain. One part of a large company from China. Imagine if a mouse had the ability to recognize voice commands from its users.
Logitech has officially partnered with Baidu Brain for the long term. That way, this mouse is not the only device that has this feature. It is possible that later the keyboard from Logitech can also listen to the user’s voice input.
Logitech Voice M380 Can Translate 7 Languages
This feature is here so that content creators can maximize their time to create content only by voice. According to lab test results from Baidu, this feature has a speed three times faster than typing. This technology from Baidu is the result of years of AI development until it matures as it is today.
Currently, the Recognition feature can identify and translate a total of seven languages. The seven languages consist of Chinese, English, Japanese, Korean, French, Spanish, and Thai. This device can dictate about 400 words per minute. Claimed success rate and accuracy of up to 98%.
“We are excited to harness Baidu’s superpowers of AI for the launch of Logitech Voice M380. We look forward to collaborating on future products and solutions that unleash the productivity and creativity of everyone in the digital world,” said Delphine Donne-Crock, General Manager for the Creativity & Productivity Business Group at Logitech.
To use this feature, Logitech Voice M380 can work with and without an internet connection. For power itself, it still uses one AA battery which is enough for 18 months of use. This mouse uses optics at the bottom so that it can be more accurate and used on various surfaces. Using wireless technology, between the module and the device can be operated up to a distance of 10 meters. It comes in three color options, namely Graphite Black, Space Silver, and Pink. This mouse is selling for $30.77.
