xprompt: multilingual assistance

Blue Owl Software
xprompt® - multilingual assistance

xprompt® enables the dialog between medical care staff and patients who don't share a common language.

The basic usage of the app follows these steps:
* Choose a language for care staff and a language for patient
* Care staff sees a menu with comprehensive medical questions and instructions
* xprompt® shows the phrase in the patient's language in text and audio
* Patient can then use the same device and switch to his/her patient phrases
* xprompt® shows the patient's selected response phrase in the care staff language (again text and audio)

xprompt® also provides two sign languages for the deaf and hard of hearing
* British Sign Language
* German Sign Language
These sign languages trigger short video sequences to the user, in addition to the phrase text. These language packs can be purchased and downloaded from within the app.

Please note: the 2 sign languages require iPhone OS 3.1 or later, on the device.

xprompt® includes 800 medical and auxiliary phrases developed by an international team of medical professionals. Phrases are logically grouped into sections, allowing the user to quickly find a phrase.

The xprompt® search function also helps users find phrases quickly by typing just a few characters. Commonly used phrases can be marked as "favorites", for quick access.

All audio languages are in high quality, and were professionally recorded. xprompt® comes with three languages pre-installed:
* English
* German
* Spanish

The following languages can be downloaded from within the app for small price:
* Afrikaans
* Arabic
* Bulgarian
* British Sign language
* Czech
* Danish
* English (USA)
* German Sign Language
* French
* Italian
* Japanese
* Korean
* Dutch
* Norwegian
* Russian
* Thai
* Turkish
* Urdu
* Chinese (Mandarin)

The xprompt® team is working hard to provide many more languages. The following
languages should be available within the next months:
* Portuguese
* Swedish
* Vietnamese

Note: The xprompt® app is a reliable translation tool but its purpose is not to replace a qualified human interpreter.
