How to use EMASUK’s Talking Tools

Just recently people in the education world have been asking for  a brief rundown of how the Talking Tools (Talking Tutor, Text Tutor and Two Can Talk) work and their best uses. Many are really surprised at how easy it is to use and access and say ‘it really is as simple as typing in’.  Accessible 24/7 wherever you are this makes it a value for money solution.

So we have created this poster for your walls or to use in training situations or review demonstrations.

NB in Health, Business and Public services ClaireTalk although bespoke is similar to Talking Tutor.

Using Talking Tools

Using Talking Tools

If you have any other ideas please let us know.

If you would like a digital copy of this poster contact us at info@emasuk.com.

In an emergency situation EMASUK is invaluable

Benefits of the talking tools in A and E.  As A and E’s begin to use this system the following statement is becoming a very familiar statement .

In an emergency situation the talking tools are invaluable.

The reasons being given by doctors and nurses for this include the;

  • ease of access
  • availability without extra cost at weekends and through the nights
  • availability of phrasebook for those sentences frequently used which also sped up the process of triage, general form filling in and information gathering.
  • waiting for a translator/interpreter can be too long but this is when the online tool comes into its own.

There are many challenges ahead of all healthcare providers including the new CCG’s,  if you would like us to be part of your solution contact John via email j.foxwell@emasuk.com   or  phone  07525 323219.

Translators needed

We are currently looking for translators that work in or with schools either as an assistant or teacher to join our team. Languages that we are particularly looking for are French, Tagalog and Greek but if you have another language please ask as there are often opportunities in other languages. If you live in the UK, have access to publisher, word and excel then please get in touch. Work is sporadic allowing those of you in school the opportunity to share your expertise in this way.

Contact Liz on l.foxwell@emasuk.com with details of the languages you are offering and a little background about yourself.

Kind words of thanks – supporting Lithuanian, Portuguese, Polish and Korean on a daily basis

What  a lovely email that arrived in my inbox.

Thank you for the improvements to the Resources section on EMASUK – it is easy to access, and very useful. We had two Lithuanians, and two Portuguese arrive yesterday and a Polish and Korean girl today, so there is still a great need!

With the borders being opened in Europe schools, companies and hospitals could soon be asking for resources and support in Bulgarian and Romanian languages. Luckily with both languages we can offer this via text tutor our bespoke solution for creating your own flyers, leaflets, newsletters, letters etc to get the individualised message that you need to get across in your organisation.

As this article suggests there will not be a huge demand but nonetheless there will be a demand.

If you are the budget holder think about how your staff and yourself will feel when trying to communicate. Our customers and experiences tell us it is all to easy to experience frustration, self doubt and feeling of being out of control as well as not doing your best for the person. As the budget holder you can allay their fears by giving them a chance. Using Text tutor allows them 24/7 access to way of communicating with the customer, patient or parent and is especially convenient to start off the conversation whilst waiting for interpreters/translators to arrive.
