Hearing Helper is specifically designed for anyone trying to talk with HOH (Hard of Hearing), Deaf, or ESL (English as a Second Language) friends and family.

Simply push and hold the mic to translate speech-to-text with Apple's Siri technology.

Tap to quick-edit incorrect words.

And make anything you say BIG!

Hearing Helper sits in the background of your conversations, so you can focus on what's being said.

Hearing Helper is also really helpful for communicating with family and friends who aren't as comfortable speaking English but can read it well.

- Push and hold the mic for speech-to-text in real time
- Tap on the text to quick edit incorrect words
- Change the font size up to 60pts (That's big!)
- Simple easy-to-follow instructions

I designed this app to help my family and I talk with my 100-year-old grandfather who's hard of hearing, and now even his roommate uses it to communicate with him!

If you find this app, I hope it helps you better communicate with your loved ones.

This app uses a couple of icons from the noun project:
Ear by Loka Mariella
mic by Aybige

This is what I have been looking for

This app is amazing. You can just hit the red button and talk, the app will then transcribe what is said on screen. The KILLER feature of this app is that when you hit the red button again it clears the previous dictation. This is a MASSIVE time saver and makes a back and forth conversation between two people so much faster than other apps. Accuracy is pretty solid. It’s really suited for a one on one conversation. It’s free but I would of good money for this.

Great app, almost perfect!

I was searching for a simple app to talk to my mother who can hardly hear, this has come the closest to prefect. A couple of things would make this prefect: first a way to toggle the talk button so the app can be left running sitting on a table. Second, adding a line break when there is a few seconds of silence, this would break the text up into paragraphs to make it easier to read. Thank you 🙏.

So helpful with my WWII veteran father

My dad can no longer hear my voice (and a multitude of other loud sounds). This app is so easy to use. It transcribes my voice with remarkable accuracy! One suggestion. I wish the app would be able to turn 180 degrees so we could chat across the table.
