A new application for the iPhone allows you to take a picture of some text and then translate it. Not only that, with text-to-speech technology, it will pronounce the text as well.
With translation capability from English into 16 languages and pronunciation in FIGS plus Portuguese, the Pic Translator seems aimed at the monolingual American who ends up at a restaurant with indecipherable entrees. An interesting app—and at a cost of 99 cents, it seems worth a shot!
