Schools are increasingly diverse. Teachers manage many types of learners, including students who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) who require assistive technology, and language learners who may not speak or understand the language of the classroom well. A diverse student body includes family members too, who may not share a language with teachers or school staff, making school enrollment, teacher-parent conferences , and conversations with school staff a challenge. Microsoft Translator helps bridge these communication gaps, supporting accessible classroom learning with live captioning, cross-language understanding, and even multilingual casual conversations to help with student integration.
