AI makes it all up

I have used Google Translate for many years and some of the recent changes have frustrated me immensely. I use this primarily for Chinese language and often use the camera feature. Lately, it seems the app will not faithfully transcribe what is displayed, but will change the characters displayed. I can’t trust that the AI hasn’t decided to substitute what is displayed with something different and perhaps has changed the meaning, by even a slight, but significant amount.
A faithful transcription will allow me to puzzle out what the meaning may by allowing me to review the characters displayed, not the characters that have been substituted.

Also, with the same feature, I used to be able to view the characters in the photo and choose which characters to translate, but now, I can only choose the translated segments. If there is a way to view an untranslated version, other than sending it to the home page (with the already unreliable transcription of what is displayed), I haven’t figured it out.

Accessibility for Instructional Design

Google Translate is now a form of augmented reality and is adapted for educational purposes. This application provides users with tools to translate between languages and they now include an image option; users take a photograph of a sign, piece of paper, or other form of written text and receive a translation in the language of their choice. This augmented reality is ground breaking because this allows online learners to access content in other languages. The application also translates spoken word in real time, which allows all learners to access audio in written form, in their own language, online or in-person.
This version of augmented reality that is adapted for education can be utilized in an online learning environment and can be utilized by instructional designers. One of the major challenges with instructional design is selecting the correct tools to build learning experiences. With this application, instructional designers are able to create a course in their own language and can make their lesson accessible to learners by recommending Google Translate for accessibility. I plan to utilize this in conjunction with my online lessons and videos in order to reach more students with diverse abilities and primary languages.

Horrible Application Given the Size of the Company

The Google translate app is a joke. There are very few apps that can lead someone to yell expletives while sitting in their kitchen trying to enjoy a cup of tea. Editing something you’ve written on the Google Translate App is a pitiful process filled with tapping the screen of your phone over and over attempting to unselect individual words or sentences. Sometimes it selects the entirety of what you’ve written and won’t allow you to unselect it without a fight. It’s unconscionable that the process for editing what you’ve written doesn’t follow every other smart phone format. Not only that, when you’ve finished writing of considerable length, in my case an email, and would like to highlight, copy and paste it, you will quickly realize you cannot highlight and scroll at the same time like you can on any other apple app that includes type. Instead, you’re forced to go through a ridiculous process of highlighting as much as you can see, pasting it, returning to the app, copying more and then pasting that. I repeated that process six time before I had copied my email over to gmail. If I had more time I would go into detail about the “define” tool that pops up unprovoked and further adds to the absolute farce that is the UX of this application. For a company like Google to have produced such a dysfunctional infuriating UI is truly shameful.
