translation shirt (well, apron) – offline and realtime, and fashionable AF (ok j/k on the latter)


Video demo 🙂

You can see the kind of mistakes it makes —

The translation package (argostranslate) really wants proper grammar, while the transcription (vosk) package does not care at all… I did try a vosk model that preserves casing, but it was so slow to run that it would just miss audio entirely which was worse.

Also I couldn’t get Chinese or other languages to work with argostranslate, only Spanish (it would just output the input text instead of any Chinese characters). I wonder if I messed something up with my install.
