Interact-AS(TM) is speech recognition software for your PC laptop, netbook or tablet that can allow deaf and hard of hearing individuals to directly communicate with people who do not know sign language. The person who is hard of hearing can read a transcript of what's being said, while someone with difficulty writing or typing can dictate memos or generate text for documents and emails.
The Interact-AS Consumer Edition is a scaled down version of Interact-AS ideal for communicating with a few people. It features:
Microsoft's speech recognition and voice synthesis engines
Support for speech, typing and handwriting input
Instant closed captioning of conversations that can be saved
Complete suite of Visualize Tools including built-in sketch pad
Individuals who are deaf can directly communicate with people who do not know sign language
A person who is hard of hearing can instantly see a closed-caption transcript of what's being said in conversations, a conference room discussion, a radio broadcast, or a video program
People who have difficulty writing or typing but have verbal skills can use their voice to dictate memos, answer test questions, or generate text for documents and emails
Interact-AS gives a voice back to individuals who have lost the ability to speak by voicing aloud whatever a person types or writes
Supports written, typed and spoken input
Spoken words are instantly transcribed and displayed
Transcript includes an optional synchronized audio recording
Written or typed words are instantly spoken aloud so a non-verbal person can participate in classroom discussions

Load Interact-AS onto your PC laptop, netbook or tablet and you are ready to go. Interact-AS makes it simple to communicate—whatever you type or write is spoken out loud. Plus, using an external or built-in computer microphone, speech can be translated into text that is displayed on your screen, so you no longer need to rely on pen and paper. Take Interact-AS wherever you go: to work or school, stores, restaurants and more for easier communication anywhere, anytime, with anyone.
Visualize is just one of Interact-AS's many features. Use the visualize tab to show pictures, video clips or maps. Use the sketch pad where you can draw and discuss ideas.
