Talkman was a brave attempt to turn the PSP into a voice-activated universal translator... and credit where credit's due, it actually works. Kinda. French, German, Spanish, Italian and Japanese phrases can be translated into English or vice versa; with the ability to search through useful expressions by situation to turn it into a phrase book. I actually tested Talkman's microphone functionality in Spain... and was surprised to find that it works very well. Unfortunately you have to tell it what language you need and what surroundings you're in... which is much slower than using a phrase book or just loudly repeating your English request over and over again. It's a novelty rather than a genuinely important tool, but it's still well worth checking out as a unique stocking filler.
