Hello.This post was extremely interesting, especially since I was browsing for thoughts on this subject last Saturday.
Thanks! This article is extremely helpful.
I downloaded Microsoft Translator onto my iPhone and was able to translate a screenshot of a French news article.
Just what I needed! All the best, Katie

Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.
Very insightful article thank you.
My 75yr old mother doesn’t read English, but the translate app on the iPhone doesn’t have her language. I Was hoping to find something she can scan that reads out loud or something along those lines. Also doesn’t read English and got cataracts, so I was hoping for something user-friendly and simple that offers more than text-to-text/text-to-speech.
Any suggestions would be extremely appreciated!!
Interesting, just what I wanted to know.
