The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is soliciting information on speech-to-speech voice translation technologies marketed for use by the criminal justice community. For law enforcement and corrections personnel, first responders, and others who work with the public, overcoming language barriers when working with individuals with limited English proficiency is vital to doing their jobs effectively. Voice translation technology can provide a practical solution. The National Criminal Justice Technology Research, Test, and Evaluation Center (NIJ RT&E Center) is developing a ``Market Survey of Voice Translation Technologies for Criminal Justice Applications'' to address this issue. This market survey will be published by NIJ to assist agencies in their assessment of relevant information prior to making purchasing decisions.
