Assistive Technology podcast: Will Lewis talks about Microsoft Translator’s role in bridging communication gaps

Will Lewis, Principal Technical Program Manager with Microsoft Translator, spoke with the Indiana Assistive Technology Act (INDATA) Project at Easter Seals Crossroads about why Translator is an important assistive technology tool, and how this tool can impact how we engage and communicate with one another.


You have someone who is visiting from China, they don’t speak English.  How do you communicate with that person? Being able to break down those barriers to provide some form of access for the individual to be able to communicate with each other is really where this technology really comes to the four…it breaks down those barriers in ways that are really engaging and touching. – Will Lewis, Principal Technical Program Manager, Microsoft Translator
