EnglishForums.com serves 3 million visitors per month, 106 million in the past 3 years, all seeking help with English language knowledge. The most common interests of this international demographic are English for employment (business and work usage), English education (student and class knowledge) and English for travel.

English Forums has a registered userbase of 192,000, though the site does not require visitors to create an account to post or interact. English Forums hosts over 2 million unique answers across 500,000 questions.

Founder Frank West comments, “This is English. It is the language which is uniting the world, in the sense that when you go abroad, you can enjoy the culture, you can enjoy everything but if people aren’t communicating, it kind of ends there. When it comes to business, you need English. Being English, I feel a little awkward saying that but the truth is, it got chosen as the world’s business language. [With English Forums] it’s an unlimited amount of things that can be done.” (excerpt: Founder’s Interview video, attached with this release).

English Forums’ parent company retained media channel specialized M&A intermediary OODIENCE for the sale.

Microsoft’s Seeing AI app for the blind now reads handwriting

Artificial intelligence took center stage at Microsoft's AI Summit in San Francisco on Wednesday. Aside from announcing AI smarts for a range of software -- from Bing to Office 365 -- the tech titan is also ramping up its Seeing AI app for iOS, which uses computer vision to audibly help blind and visually impaired people to see the world around them. According to Microsoft, it's nabbed 100,000 downloads since its launch in the US earlier this year, which convinced the tech titan to bring it to 35 countries in total, including the EU.

It's also getting a bunch of new features. The app now boasts more currency recognition, adding British pounds, US dollars, Canadian dollars, and Euros to its tally. Going beyond the color in a scene, it can also spot the color of specific objects, like clothes. Plus, it's no longer restricted to just short printed text, with handwriting recognition now part of its skill set. You can also customize the voice that it uses to speak its observations out loud, and set how fast it talks.

Finally, a musical light detector alerts you to the light in an environment with an audible tone -- Microsoft claims the tool will save users from having to touch a hot bulb or LED battery to check if it's on. Despite the big update, there's still no word on an Android launch.
