    Researchers at Google Brain are developing a method to translate speech in one language to text in a different language, using neural networks. They hope to improve over more conventional automatic methods, where the speech is transcribed into written text, and then the written text is translated. The older method can be cumbersome, and initial experiments show that direct speech-to-text translation seems less subject to error. The new method could especially help speakers of rare languages communicate with others around the globe.
