Presentation Translator Helps with Classroom Learning Through Live Captioning

On May 9th, 2017, Microsoft Research hosted talks given at the Redmond campus, titled “Access and Understanding in the Classroom: How Deaf Children Learn (or not)”.

This video contains snippets of those talks with live captioning using Presentation Translator, a Microsoft Garage project – demonstrating how the live feature provides accessible content for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

Additionally, audience members were able to follow along and ask questions on their own device in one of over 60 text languages (not shown in this video). For this demo, English is the chosen speech and captioned language.
