Hi Beth -- Reading this post a couple of times I have concluded that either 
the translator doesn't know english or the system doesn't do much...
I haven't gone to the website however.  Is this related to the earlier post 
Friday about the tactile display developed in Spain?  Is this some sort of 
screen reader software or a hardware technology?
Thanks for the post -- perhaps I should go to the site.
Have a good weekend.
