Incredible App Visually Translates Foreign Language Images Instantly

Unattributed, Edudemic, Dec 17, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is pretty neat - an application that scans text from the video camera, performs character recognition, and then translates it into your own language. "For example, if you hold up the phone to a sign or book that is written in Spanish, it simply shows you the sign as if it were written in English." If the article didn't use the parochial phrase 'foreign language' throughout it would be even better. "Created by QuestVisual, World Lens currently only translates English to Spanish (and vice versa) and is available from the iTunes for a modest $4.99."
