I'd like to have a word and phrase translator where after i type in the phrase and pick a language, my response comes back with an actual person's voice, no computer generated voices, saying the phrase so i can try to learn to say it correctly instead of deciphering phonetics and having no clue on accent. Probably a website with real audio would make the most sense. I'm actually hoping this idea is baked and someone will fill me in.

       Evidently it can't translate sign language...
