The functionality includes two text input modes.
- Voice input – to use this input method, you must click on the microphone icon. After entering the text by voice, you need to press the send button to get the translation.
After the voice recording starts, the timer starts for 5 seconds. If during this time the microphone does not record the voice, the recording will stop automatically.
After the end of speech, the timer starts for 2 seconds, which determines the end of speech and stop recording.
- Keyboard input – to enter text manually, you must click on the text input field and start typing text using the application built-in keyboard.
Added a long press feature that allows you to share or copy translation.
You can also delete any translation using long press feature.
