Talking Points: A Free App Teachers and Families Can Use to Translate their Text Messages Back and Forth

Two-way communication between families and schools is extremely important in times where teachers are providing remote instruction. To ensure that all families can understand and benefit from school communications, families and teachers can download the FREE Talking Points translation app on their device to communicate using text messages in their own language. It can be set up for 100+ languages. There is a version for families to download, and a version for teachers to set up their list of family contacts. Each text goes through a computer and human translation process to make sure it is a high quality translation. Watch the video and click on the button below to learn more and try it out!

Every school in Ohio should be using this to communicate seamlessly with their families on a routine basis!
