In this April 4, 2013 photograph, Niki Smith watches her new 14-year-old daughter Guan Ya use Google Translate to "speak" with her in their Rienzi, Miss., home. The Smiths 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)
