AVA Accessibility Tool for Hard of Hearing
Product: AVA -24/7 Accessibility
The phone app helps solve more or less the most essential problem today for some deaf and hard-of-hearing people: understanding and participating to group conversations. Group conversation is one of the most problematic issues for hard of hearing users is the ability to distinguish the conversation in a group meeting. AVA translates group and one-on-one conversations into something that can be read on a cell phone screen, like text messages.
It was just released within the last year on the Appstore and Playstore, and the company would love to hear from their users community. Email them at firstname.lastname@example.org With professional interpreter/captioner costs at approximately $100/hour. Conversation over coffee can be an expensive enterprise.
So far this product looks like it is headed in the right direction. People who have left comments on the Google Play site mention that calibrating the microphone makes the app work better, and that a good internet connection is essential.
