Amazon Lex launches support for South African English

Today, Amazon Lex announces language support for South African English. Amazon Lex is a service for building conversational interfaces into any application using voice and text. Amazon Lex provides deep learning powered automatic speech recognition (ASR) for converting speech to text, and natural language understanding (NLU) to recognize the intent of the text so you can build applications with highly engaging user experiences and lifelike conversational interactions. With the addition of South African English, you can build and expand your conversational experiences to better understand and engage your customer base.
