The language barrier is something that can cap our conversations and limit our knowledge about other cultures and regions. The language issue is something that can potentially dent your travel experience. I personally use the Translator app on my phone but when it comes to real-time translation it’s not exactly as fast as I expect it to be. Travis is a translator that recognizes and translates speech into more than 80 languages.
I have seen a fair share of translators doing rounds and yet Travis claims to be different from and better than others. Travis is capable of working for 12 hours without the need for a charge and it’s a completely standalone device that needs no headphones or speakers. The makers of Travis claim that the translator becomes better with use and at this point, we are very sure that the Travis makes use of AI.
Now let’s walk you through all the features that Travis has to offer and perhaps after going through the same you can decide on buying it for your next summer holidays. The simplicity of the device is probably its biggest strength, just press the button and the device will automatically start translating. As of now, more than 80 languages are supported and the noise cancellation feature is expected to increase the accuracy of the translation. In case you need some privacy or you want to maintain the decorum of a place just plug in earphones and you are good to go.
Unlike the mobile apps, processing apparently takes two seconds, thanks to the quad-core computing unit. The device works in both offline and online mode. Using a dedicated translator device is according to me always preferable as opposed to the phone app. One, the phone doesn’t die out on you prematurely and the next is the fact that the overall translation experience is better on the Travis since its a dedicated translator device. Travis can be used for your travels, conversing with colleagues from different regions, conversing with the locals or trying to make sense of the client meeting in the different language.
Travis has already been backed on the Indiegogo and the pledges started from $149. It would be interesting to see how the makers will handle the unprecedented demand for their products and whether or not they will be able to honor the estimated shipping date of September this year.
