This couple used AI lip-dubbing app to bridge language gap

Mr. Romero visits Ms. Ochoa in Mexico about once a month. But when they're apart, the AI-powered app takes Ms. Ochoa to Mr. Romero's kitchen or to a wrestling tournament as he trains his teenage son. As Ms. Ochoa gets ready for work, they exchange messages and video chat on WhatsApp. In addition to the lip-dub feature, Ms. Ochoa often uses her iPad to translate their tete-à-tete, while Mr. Romero uses the Timekettle WT2 Edge – earbuds with two-way simultaneous translation that allow him Help to follow conversations in real time.

Because their work hours are different, Ms. Ochoa is usually working while Mr. Romero is sleeping. “But in the morning, it's always, 'Good morning, love,' accompanied by a video of Leroy wishing me a good day,” she said.

Tech apps weren't always perfect – but Mr Romero said sometimes that was a good thing.

“There are no retakes unless you shoot the video multiple times,” Mr. Romero said of the lip-dubbing app. “I think it brings out the true flaws in communication, and I think it helps you grow.”

In October, Mr. Romero sent a new translated video message – this time to Ms. Ochoa's grandmother, asking for her blessing before personally asking Ms. Ochoa to marry him. Ignoring his AI assistants, Mr Romero said he carefully memorized Spanish phrases for several weeks before the engagement. They are planning a wedding this summer in Rosarito, Mexico.

They realize they probably won't always be able to rely on AI tools: The couple have even started helping each other learn Spanish and English the old-fashioned way. “I try to teach him five flashcards a day when he's with me,” Ms. Ochoa said. “He'd say to me, 'No, four – no, three. And I'm like, 'No – five!'

In a joint interview this month, the couple conversed in both languages, sometimes pausing to make sure they were on the same page — and so Mr. Romero could offer “te amo” to Ms. Ochoa.
