Mandarin Chinese Pro
Cousin Susie, who tried playing audio files from this app to communicate, says: "As much as I love the Odyssey Translator design and interface, and it is a good learning device for learning phrases, it does not actually work too well as far as playing it to people instead of talking to them. Nor do they understand my pronunciation of the language too well when I try to say more than a couple of words. Chinese has 4 tonal variations which take a while to master, and without them, it is hard for them to understand. When I tried the app at people they either look at me like I'm crazy, or, as in a restaurant the other night, get someone who speaks a little English."
