Medical Spanish Questions with Audio

Mobile Apps with Audio

  • MediBabble This free mobile app, available for Apple devices running iOS 3.1.3 or later, will generate audio in different languages, helps with history-taking and patient examination, and is designed to improve the safety, efficiency, and overall quality of care for non-English speaking patients. All of the questions in MediBabble are either yes/no questions, require gestural responses (e.g. pointing or holding up a number of fingers to quantify pain severity), or rely on the mobile device as an input method (e.g. scrolling to a date to select it). Only Spanish is preinstalled, but additional languages (Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese, Russian, and Haitian Creole) can be downloaded free of charge from the Language Selection screen. Translations for French, German, Gujarati, Hindi, and Urdu are in the works.
  • xPrompt This iPhone app, available for a small charge, comes with British English, Spanish, and German preinstalled. Nineteen additional languages, including American English can be added for a small charge. The app shows the phrase in the patient's language in text and audio and patients can use the same device and switch to his/her patient phrases.
