Microsoft Translator - communicate with students and families instantly. Even allows for a free flowing conversation using 2 microphones.

Microsoft Translator is an amazing tool to communicate with students and families. The app (in the example below is on an iPad) allows for translating using a keyboard, microphone, as well as the awesome ability to have a back-and-forth style communication utilizing 2 microphones. In fact listen to my conversation with my wife Leah! ๐Ÿ˜€

Microsoft Translator also provides live transcripts of a teacher’s lectures in many languages, including English. These transcripts enable deaf or hard of hearing students (DHH) and language learners to follow and participate in group discussions using a personal computer, laptop, tablet, or smart phone. Learn how students can join multilingual conversations using the app.

Embedded below is a 1 minute and 30 second YouTube tutorial as well as a collection of resources from Mike Tholfsen of Microsoft.
