Samsung introduced its voice assistant S Voice after Apple introduced Siri on iOS, and while it works well enough (though not as good as Google Now, which trumps every other digital assistant), it only supports a few languages, making speech recognition an exercise in futility for people in many parts of the world. However, support for more languages should be arriving to S Voice in the near future, according to myphone.gr.

According to an ad published on the site, a Chinese company – Speech Ocean – is currently looking for volunteers who can read and speak Greek, in order to improve support for the language in S Voice. The project will reportedly be carried out in Athens, and participants will be paid an undisclosed sum for the one hour sessions that take place. While the ad only mentions Greek, we’ll probably see a few other languages get better support as well, though when that support will officially arrive remains to be seen.

How many of you actually use S Voice and would be interested to see support for your language?

Thanks, Anonymous tipster!
