Video: Medics get new translator tool

When using the device, a simple press of a button dials an interpreter


11 Alive

ATLANTA — Rural Metro Ambulance believes to be the first group in the country to use devices that help break language barriers with the people they care for.

When using the device, a simple press of a button dials an interpreter, who can directly communicate with the patient, even if they do not speak the same language. The interpreter can detect the dialect and language, and transfer the call to another person who can communicate with them.

Rescuers say this will help take out some of the guess work when responding to an emergency in the field.
