The two recently prepared a Chinese dish using the program to decipher the and converse. Smith, her husband Phillip and their three other children are using the program to communicate almost exclusively with Guan Ya, who is deaf. The family uses iPhones, iPods and a laptop, all loaded with the program to write in either English that translates to Chinese or vice-a-versa. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis)
