Purchasing Interact Automated Captioning

Interact-StreamerTM is Subscription-based

The Interact-StreamerTM web-based captioning and translation system is sold on an annual subscription basis. There’s no per-minute or per-session fee.

There are four subscription options to consider:

1. A 30-day trial subscription for $99 (plus applicable deposit for the microphone system) which includes one virtual room* and up to 30 participants in that room. There’s no reason not to start with a trial – we highly recommend it.

2. An annual subscription for $795, which includes one virtual room and up to 30 participants in that room.

3. An annual subscription for $795, and a second year for $199, which includes one virtual room and up to 30 participants in that room. A terrific deal, but it is only offered for a limited time.

4. An annual subscription (same as above) but with more than one room. The cost of each room is $795 per year for the first three rooms. Discounts are available: Buy 4 and get 1 free (also 25% discount for 10).

* Providing one student with the real-time captioning accommodation will require one room. Accommodating a second student, who has a different class schedule, requires the addition of a second room. Each room allows for up to 30 speakers and or viewers. Each room subscription includes speech-to-text, text-to-speech, and language translation.

Trial with the Nano Wireless Microphone System  A simple to use and tiny solution

Trial with the Nano Wireless Microphone System $99 software trial + $400 loan of microphone + S/H

The Nano system does not have all the functionality of the Dual system, but it is the smallest form factor, has no cables or battery for the receiver, and it is the easiest system for the student to use. The Nano wireless system includes an extremely small receiver, one that’s about the size of a USB thumb drive. There are no cables or switches on the receiver, just plug it into a USB port and your set. The headset is the same as the Dual system, a behind-the-neck style with a micro element. It also comes with a lapel microphone. Also included in this kit are two complete sets of rechargeable batteries, the recharging system for the batteries, and a carrying case. PLEASE NOTE: the Nano receiver does not have a built-in audio port for connectivity to hearing aids, cochlear implants, or FM/DM transmitters. Additional microphones and microphone headsets are available below. A handheld microphone is also available for the Nano system, but it cannot be used simultaneously with the headset microphone system. It takes about 15 seconds to switch captioning access from the headset microphone to the handheld microphone. To use the Nano with an iPad, a separate USB-to-Lightning port cable must be provided by the school.

 

Trial with the Dual Wireless Microphone System Supports team teaching and/or small group learning

Trial with the Dual Wireless Microphone System $99 software trial + $500 loan of microphone + S/H

The Dual Microphone System is the choice to select if you will be using Interact in team teaching situations, or if the student needs to connect the audio to an ear-bud, personal streamer, or the transmitter of an FM/DM system. The Dual microphone kit includes three high-fidelity wireless microphones for use in classroom situations: (1) a behind-the-neck micro-element headset with a belt-worn transmitter for the main teacher/person talking, plus (2) a lapel microphone for the belt-worn transmitter, and (3) a wireless handheld microphone with a built-in transmitter for a second teacher/aide/or use by students during group discussions. Two microphones options can be simultaneously connected to the Dual’s transmitter. The dual-channel receiver comes with a built-in digitizer and analog output ports. The system also includes four complete sets of rechargeable batteries; the recharging system for both microphones; a carrying case; and all required cables and connectors. Additional microphones and microphone headsets are available below.

If a purchase order is necessary, it needs to be completed for the full trial period fee ($499 or $599 depending upon microphone plus shipping costs). Include on your purchase order the exact description found on this page for the item you wish to order.

To process a return of the deposit, the purchase order should include (a) Who the refund check is to be made payable to, and (b) The address to mail the refund check.

In this example, the two-year purchase (24 months) will carry over 6 months for an initial Interact-Streamer subscription.

Cables

       Audio Cable for Connecting with FM/DM Receivers  $4.99

This is a 12″ long, black, stereo (three conductor), male-male cable with a 2.5mm plug on one end, and a 3.5mm plug on the other. Use this item to connect a receiver with a 2.5mm headset jack (such as the Phonak Mylink  or an MLxi Checker) to a PureAudio USB Adapter to make the audio-in connection to the media device logged into the Streamer account.

 

     Pure Audio USB Adapter cable  $37.50 + $8.00 S/H  Pure Audio USB Adapter Cable

Unfortunately, many computers come with a single input for both headphones and microphone. A simple splitter will not allow maximal microphone input. Additionally, many input ports in combination with a standard 6″ male/male cable do not provide a connection that results in optimal captioning accuracy. The solution is to plug the receiver into a Pure Audio USB Adapter cable that is then plugged into one of the computer’s USB ports. The same port must be used each time the microphone is plugged into the computer.
