Google adds Arabic and Hebrew to Voice Search

Good news for folks in the Middle East, as Google announced this week that their Voice Search service now recognizes Hebrew and Arabic if you’re in Kuwait, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Qatar, the UAE and Israel.

Voice Search will understand Gulf, Levant and Egyptian dialects, and the more people use it, the better it will recognize voices i the future. Google says they used over one million “utterances” to train their system.

Available for Android 2.2 devices or newer (or you can just download the Voice Search App from the Market).
