Read It with the Google Assistant: Listen to web pages
Google announced that its assistant can now read aloud entire pages in the browser with the possibility of various settings..
To activate it, just say: «Hey Google read this page». After that, the program will begin to expressively read its contents aloud. In the menu, users will be able to adjust the tempo of the recitation, as well as one of several voice options.
According to Yossi Mathias, vice president of Google, this feature will translate web pages into more than 42 languages, instantly converting text into natural speech. In this case, the browser will highlight the content itself and automatically move the page.
Potential uses include listening to the news while driving, translating text while traveling, or helping people with low vision..
So far, the new function is only available on the original Android platform for smartphones at least version 5.0.
but advanced systems are not capable of only to read, but also to compose. Scientists have recently developed AI that generates poetry with a certain emotional coloring.
