Weew-Waaw, Thai to English, Thai to Russian transcription
I'm working on a project of rule-based Thai transcription: (the link is temporarily unavailable)
Technically, it is written in F# with a C# front-end.
I would be happy to get acquainted with those who are experienced with NLP (Natural Language Processing), just ping me in the SE chat. :-)

comment Should tester fix bugs?
@BjRollison Yes, really. Using archaic V-model is caused by two reasons: (1) the philosophic nature of the original Q; (2) misunderstanding of the basic principles in some comments. There are many improvements over the V-model occurred for recent decade, but they still solve the same problem: imperfection of the human nature. Having same person doing opposite tasks leads to problems caused by human imperfection. Large companies (as in Q) may try various solutions, but I'm absolutely certain they grasp the ancient V-model first before trying to "hack" it.

@BjRollison The analogy is not correct. Unit Tests and Acceptance Tests are totally different ones, they are set in different phases of SDLC, initiated by different people ("hats"), and performed by different people. See this answer for details. Continuing the analogy, unit tests are done on a metal working factory, checking whether or not the metal has air bubbles or the proper percentage of carbon within.

@PhilKirkham Continuing a housing metaphor, it's everyone's own decision whether to wait 6 months or to die when a ceiling falls due to the very same nails problem. I prefer to wait. :-) Returning back to SQA, the specs are the ultimate judge. If it says the "nails" must be 1.25 inch, and they are not, the testing should fail, the issue raised to the developers, and so on. However, QA engineers often compromise with themselves by accepting/sticky-tape-fixing something that is indeed broken. And we see the results here and there. See Andrew's comment above.

@PhilKirkham No, because it may appear that all planks are loose, and you have found just a single one. Attempting to fix it by yourself is likewise attaching it with a sticky tape, instead of finding that, e.g., all nails are 0.75 inch long instead of 1.25 inch. I've seen some houses like that. And some softwares! :)

@PhilKirkham A common goal does not imply the same responsibilities. If I build a house and I'm the same person who runs an acceptance commission, would you trust such a commission enough to live in my house, or would you require an independent commission to verify my work?
