I see that we have programmes which will - more or less - transform the spoken word into text on a PC. OK, they aren't perfect, but they seem to be improving. I see that there are other programmes which will make a stab at translating text from one language into another. These are also a long way (OK, a very long way) from perfect - but these are also getting better. Finally there are programmes which will convert text into speech. Processors are getting faster, memory is getting smaller and wearable computers are forecast. So - how long before English teachers need to start worrying because everybody has a wearable translator?
