You CanSpeak Arabic: The FPS

MSNBC has an article about the US military working on a FPS game
where you play someone on the armed forces side that needs to
infiltrate and find information regarding something important.
To do so, you are not armed with guns and a rocket launcher
but instead you need to speak Arabic. Using some pretty nifty
speech recognition and AI technologies, depending on how you
well you speak it, you can make a bit of progress.

What is also interesting is that the 3-d engine is based on
the UT2004 engine it seems. I’m hoping that this might
someday become available to the individual since it sounds
like a decent way to use current game technology to meld
in with something that is possibly educational.
