eyeHear allows anyone with an iPhone to caption any conversation anywhere.
Press and hold iPhone's screen to caption what you or anyone else is saying in large, easy-to-read text. If speech isn't available, you can also use the keyboard to quickly type and still show large type.
eyeHear was designed to enable easier conversation for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing communities in situations where sign language is not available.
eyeHear is free with no in-app purchases. eyeHear uses Siri's speech recognition services to provide captioning free-of-charge to users. eyeHear respects your privacy, and doesn't keep any records of your usage, transcriptions, or audio recordings.

Great service, but more…?
This is very useful with a friend that is hard of hearing. However, in a group, each person who wishes for him to understand needs to hold their phone and use EyeHear. It seems best to hold your phone near your chest so the person can see your face and read the text at the same time. This makes for a situation in a group setting where several other people are all holding their phone on their chest and one person is reading them.
While this is very helpful and appreciated, it seems you could go further.
What would be even better is to change the dynamic such that the person who is hard of hearing observes spoken text their OWN phone, and others, perhaps using AirPods attached to their phone, could Bluetooth the text to his phone, perhaps bracketed to show the speaker.
By this development, instead of everyone else having to do something to aid one person, that person can manage their own needs. Everyone would not need to hold their phone and show it to that person, making the conversation somewhat more natural and intimate.
From my view, this would require no new technology and clearly you are more than smart enough to figure this out.
This app is incredible - I’ve been searching for years for an app to convert speech recognition into a readable form for deaf people for years. This is it!!! Easy to use in conversation. The text adjusts to fill the screen, making it easier for use with people with poor eyesight. Thank you so much for this app!😊
Sending thanks and excitement
Thanks!! I LOVE your app, it’s a godsend. Still learning how to use utmost effectively. Sometime I have a hard time making it start, like it doesn’t register my finger press. But so worth it that I keep trying. How can I follow you to keep up with what you’re doing?
