Microsoft Censoring Software

Microsoft have new technology to censor swearing in speech which was awarded patent number 7,437, 290 by the US Patent and Trademark Office on 14/10/08.

The technology changes “undesired words” to unintelligble sounds and can be used in real-time to protect listeners of live broadcasts; this would have been handy for OfCom at Live 8!

I saw this on The Register.
