In 1883, the editor of the American Annals of the Deaf wrote, "it is not unreasonable to hope that some instrument will yet be contrived that will transcribe ordinary human utterance.” After a wait of 125 years, what was once a dream is now available product.

Interact-AS is used to remove multiple communication barriers:

  • - Individuals who are Deaf can directly communicate with people who do not know sign language;
  • - A person that is Hard-of-Hearing can now instantly see a closed-caption transcript of what’s being said, be it a conversation, a conference room discussion, a radio broadcast, or a video program;
  • - Interact-AS gives a voice back to individuals who have lost the ability to speak (e.g., ALS patients) by voicing aloud whatever a person types or writes; and
  • - With the optional Language Modules, Interact-ASinstantly translates conversations to and from foreign languages.

Interact-AS supports speech, typing and handwriting. Use Interact-AS wherever you go: at work, at parties, in stores, restaurants – instant communication anywhere, anytime with anyone and even in multiple languages.

You’re perhaps familiar with the saying, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” Interact-AS puts this into practice. Use the Visualize tab to show pictures or video clips that add to your communications – perhaps a presentation, a website, a work document, or a city map. Pull up a sketch pad where you can draw and discuss ideas. Visualize is just one of Interact’s many features. Others include:

  • - Add a camera to your system to view a live video image of the person who is speaking,
  • - Select the gender of the voice output you want to use,
  • - Save a transcript of your conversation for future reference,
  • - And many more ..

Interact-AS even instantly translates foreign languages. Purchase one of the optional translation modules and whatever you write or type in English is immediately translated and voiced out in Spanish, French, German, Italian, Dutch or many other languages. When someone says something in a foreign language it’s translated and shown to you in English. Only Interact-AS allows you to communicate with others in so many multiple languages.
