Pocketalk is a multisensory two-way translation device. With a large touch screen, noise-canceling microphones, and a text-to-translate camera, it works across 74 different languages. Designed for conversations, the device combines translation engines from around the world to improve accuracy. The sleek unit is equipped with high-quality noise-canceling microphones and two powerful speakers, so it’s easy to have full conversations, even in noisy environments. The camera instantly recognizes and translates text, the written word, and signs. A large touch screen provides a text translation for additional clarity.
Pocketalk is particularly useful for educators and administrators in high-diversity schools who need to communicate effectively with parents in different languages.
The latest version of the device starts shipping this month and costs $299. The Pocketalk Classic is also still available (permanent price cut to $199). The differences between the two models are:
Smaller size: Lighter and more compact for easier travel
Larger screen: 16% larger touch surface for additional clarity
Camera: Instantly recognizes and translates text, the written word, and signs, because language shouldn’t be limited to just verbal communication
Conversion: Computes exchanges for currency, length, width, and temperature
Faster: Increased software processing speed for more immediate translations
More connected: With support for a wider mobile band, users will notice a stronger data signal across the world
One-button translation: For simple translations in fewer steps
