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:
The following languages can be downloaded from within the app for small price:
* British Sign language
* English (USA)
* German Sign Language
* Chinese (Mandarin)
The xprompt® team is working hard to provide many more languages. The following
languages should be available within the next months:
Note: The xprompt® app is a reliable translation tool but its purpose is not to replace a qualified human interpreter.
- Version number display fixed
- Tab bar UI update (iPhone version)
Ratings and Reviews
Indespensible to travelers and medical providers....
My job takes me to many countries around the world where I don't know the local language. As a diabetic, I have always worried about needing medical services and how would I communicate my issues. Xprompt gives me some piece of mind knowing that if I am in Japan or China and I am having a sugar low, I can quickly communicate my issues to anyone passing by or with a medical provider. Very nice application that's easy to use and provides me with a great sense of relief.
This is a fantastic help for doctors that do not always have access to interpreters and for frequent travellers alike. I found the app easy to use and the quality of voice output is surprisingly good even on an ipod. Hope the portuguese language gets added soon :)
Good solid app
I downloaded this app after I took a job that might send me over seas on business travel. I have been trying it out at home and feel safer knowing that I will be able to communicate with doctors during my travel. Hopefully I won't have to use it, but if something arises, I feel better knowing I have it.
