Ava is a mobile application that provides real time captions to empower deaf and hard of hearing people to participate better in conversations. It connects people’s smartphones to each other, and captures the audio from a conversation, to translate all the speech into text. This way, a deaf or hard of hearing person can follow exactly who is saying what.
Above is a video that shows you what this can look like:
In a group conversation, each smartphone with Ava is turned into a smart microphone for each person. Ava captions what people says in less than a second. Always looking at the best for your clients? Offer them the forefront of accessibility: many mobile ears and an artificial intelligence to complement hearing aids.
How does Ava works for group conversations.
Hearing aids, lip-reading or other assistive listening devices are not always enough for your deaf/hard-of-hearing clients to follow conversations. Restaurants, group conversations, spending time with friends, these are all situations that are challenging because. Not anymore – these situations are exactly what Ava has been designed for.
Ava is a mobile app that everyone (coworkers, family members, friends) download on their smartphone. By connecting each other via the app, every smartphone becomes a microphone, and Ava captions what the group says on the deaf/hard-of-hearing person phone. They can then answer by either talking, or if they have a “Deaf” voice, typing. Ava can even voice the deaf person’s answer.
