Just Your Standard Rape, Nothing Special

Sometimes, the translation is not just wrong, but seriously embarrassing.  Here are two recent voice recognition errors that stood out:

What I actually said to my computer: We’re having trouble with our e-mails.
How my voice software translated it:  We’re having trouble with our females.

What’s worse—I didn’t catch that one and it happened in the workplace.  Talk about inappropriate!

But wait, there’s more:

What I actually said to my computer: use the standard rate
How my voice software translated it:  use the standard rape

As opposed to a creative rape, perhaps?

What I actually said to my computer: Do you have any rental limitations?
How my voice software translated it:  Do you have any mental limitations?

Duh.
