Google phone doesn't like cursing

Posted on Tuesday, January 26 2010 @ 00:04:09 CET by


Reuters reports Google's Nexus One doesn't like cursing, when you use the device's voice recognition feature offensive expressions will be replaced with a string of # symbols.
A Google spokeswoman provided a statement suggesting that replacing curses with # symbols aimed less at enforcing etiquette than to ensure that offensive words don’t accidentally appear in transcriptions – a potential concern given the fact that voice recognition technology is still not perfect.

“We filter potentially offensive or inappropriate results because we want to avoid situations whereby we might misrecognize a spoken query and return profanity when, in fact, the user said something completely innocent,” said Google.
