Ratings and Reviews
Wishful Cook - Don’t be disappointed! Try this as per Craig, the app developer, who couldn’t have been nicer when I wrote to him about this:
“So this app can do several things - one thing it can do is simply to provide subtitles for what people are saying around you in the language they are speaking - and that can be in English. If that's all you want - you can go to the settings (look for the cog icon in the bottom left corner) and turn off the translateswitch.”
The app will do what you want, at least at close range. I am looking forward to trying it - so far I have only had the chance to try it with my own voice like a dictation service, but that worked pretty well on my first try a few minutes ago! I don’t really have enough to go on yet to rate this app a 5, but will do so for now just given the possibility of the help it offers.
This seems like a useful app for translating spoken languages into a different language. I was hoping to use it to be able to caption what people are saying around me since I’m Deaf and it would be awesome to be able to read in English what people say to me in English. But I guess I’m going to have to ask people to speak in other languages in order to be able to understand them in English with this app, because it refuses to subtitle spoken English in written English. Even though it does so for any other language - so why not add English as well?

Hi Wishful Cook! So this app can simply provide subtitles for what people are saying around you in the language they are speaking - and that can be in English. If that's all you want - you can go to the settings (look for the cog icon in the bottom left corner) and turn off the translate switch. You can also select the 'audio language' there.
If you want to translate to another language, you would turn this switch on, and then select the language you want to translate to where it says 'translate to'. Of course translating from English to English doesn't make sense, so it gives you an error if you try to do this. I will try to improve this error message to avoid this misunderstanding in future.
Hope that helps. Feel free to get in touch via support email if you need further help.
I have heard so many cool things about this app! I love it! I am currently traveling and this comes in handy so much! I definitely try to learn languages while abroad but this is making it so much more simple when I am walking around town with no data!
