I live for this app.

I woke up around Christmas 2019 I could no longer understand what my now ex husband and kids were saying. I’ve been to numerous ents, also a geneticist, and a neuropathy neurologist. Trying to figure out what has happened? If anyone has a clue please let me know. I’ve had 2
Head mri’s. I’m still getting tests trying to figure out what’s wrong with me. But I can still hear sounds not perfectly a lot of sounds I can’t hear anymore like running water, fans etc. But voices are like Charlie Browns parents even tests make them loud but I can’t understand the words anymore. It’s frustrating but thankfully I have this app to help communicate. I wish it stayed in 2.0 all the time it was more of a life saver especially with gatherings I still feel at a loss. But at least I can kinda understand people with the app. Thanks for having the app! Subscriber since I found it in spring 2021. I still don’t know asl. It definitely helps!!

My husbands hearing loss

Last Saturday my husband woke up about five am the usual time he gets up turned to me and said I can’t hear a thing when he tried to get up he was extremely dizzy I called our dr he said it’s some inner ear thing I’ll see him Monday since he has no pain. All day Saturday and Sunday he was miserable not able to keep his balance but especially not able to hear anything thing at all..I banged a spoon against a pan he heard nothing. Monday our dr sent us to a specialist my husband had no wax, fluid in the ear or inflammation the dr said it is a rare condition that not much is known about it he injected steroid into his ears that didn’t work as of today he was started on oral steroids. The specialist showed me this app so that I could communicate with my husband it has been a God send. Now I pray his hearing is restored or at least some of his hearing restored 🙏🏻. Thank you so much for this amazing app. Lilly

A great assist for the hard of hearing

I lost 50% of my hearing last year due to a reaction from strong medicine. I was at a loss as to how to communicate with my wife. A friend recommended Live Transcribe. I now have one Live Transcribe loaded on an old iPad we weren’t using, and have placed it permanently on a table between where she sits and me. I connected an external directional microphone (the Rode “VideoMicMe”) and directed it to my wife. I leave Live Transcribe on the entire time we are in the family room. (You will need to have your iPad connected to external power). The only problem we have is occasional confusion between my wife talking and the TV. She just mutes the TV to talk. I also find the iPhone version indispensable for doctor visits and other one on one conversations. Maybe this will work for you, too!
