Overcoming Communication Barriers in the Classroom
March 18, 2010, Northfield, MN â€“ Auditory Sciences, the developer of a new line of multilanguageproducts for the deaf and hard-of-hearing communities, announced the results of recent testing and evaluation of their products for use in classroom settings. These tests were hosted by Dr. Donna Greenfield, Educational Audiologist, and Ann Mayes, Teacher of Hard of Hearing and Deaf Learners, and were performed on location in the Gideon Pond Elementary School in Burnsville, Minnesota.
â€œInteract-AS is a new product designed specifically for the deaf and hard-of-hearing communities", said Robert Palmquist, CEO of SpeechGear, Inc. and their subsidiary, Auditory Sciences, LLC. â€œFor this testing, we used Phonak's Insprio FM transmitter with the MyLink+ receiver. The output from the MyLink+ receiver was plugged directly into a laptop, enabling a wireless link from the teacher to the computer.â€ â€œThe results were what we hoped for,â€ said Dr. Greenfield. â€œThe Inspiro microphone was used by both male and female speakers, with whatever they said being transcribed and displayed on the laptop. Although the transcriptions were not perfect, they were solid with the results deemed to be very beneficial to students needing this type of capability. I have never seen any other product that can do this.â€ American English and British English versions of Interact-AS are available for immediate purchase, along with language translation modules for Spanish, French, German, Italian, and Dutch.
