It also translates text from one language to another, performs speech recognition, and summarizes large volumes of textual data in real-time to make communication more convenient. Owing to these properties, various enterprises are adopting NLP in customer service chatbots, virtual assistants, voice-operated GPS systems, voice-to-text apps, and other computer programs.
