Nagish uses AI to provide fast and accurate real-time captions for phone calls, converting speech to text and text to speech to communicate by voice or text. With Nagish, people who are deaf or hard of hearing can now engage in private conversations effortlessly using their existing phone numbers, eliminating the need for interpreters, stenographers, or captioning assistants, and best of all, it's completely free.

Why Nagish?

■ People love it: “Nagish is the true definition of a game-changer. I would often ask myself if there would ever be a telecommunications app where the caller doesn't know I am deaf. This is where Nagish comes in! Their goal is to ensure the effectiveness and smoothness of communication, hence the name Nagish which means 'accessible'!”

■ Fast and Accurate: Nagish uses live transcribe technology to ensure you never miss a beat. It keeps up with the flow of conversation, capturing every word with remarkable speed and accuracy.

■ 100% Private: Your privacy is #1. The captions remain completely secure from end to end without involving humans in the process.

■ Keep your existing phone number: Nagish allows you to retain your phone number for calls and texts, so you don't need to worry about changing your contact information.

■ Personal Dictionary: Nagish allows you to add custom words, phrases, or acronyms that you commonly use or may be unique to your conversations. This feature ensures that Nagish accurately transcribes and recognizes the language and terminology that matters most to you.

■ Transcribes Your Voicemails: Nagish enhances your communication experience by transcribing your voicemails. Instead of struggling to understand unclear or missed messages, you can read the transcripts at your convenience.

■ Quick Responses: If you are not using your voice to communicate, you can use Nagish with your device’s keyboard and choose from pre-set responses to commonly used phrases or questions, saving time and enabling efficient communication.

■ Save Your Transcripts: Nagish lets you save your conversations locally on your device for future reference. (Did we already say full privacy?) You can conveniently access and review your past transcripts whenever needed.

First business call!

I posted this on Facebook just now: Wow! I just got off the phone. I wanted to find out about a new product that Life Extension Foundation is offering. I hesitated because I wasn’t sure if it would work for a problem I am having right now, and when I attempted the chat, it immediately gave me a number to call. Meh. I hate making phone calls. I already have the Nagish app but I have used it only twice, in nice long conversations with my son, and the success of those two conversations was the only reason I was willing to ‘just give it a try’. The people at Life Extension are the nicest you will find on earth. Wow. Absolutely fabulous! It was so easy to talk with them, there was no reason to explain I was using a relay service, the captioning was done in real time, and once again LEF came through and said the product I inquired about was good, but there was one better and that product about half the price! Nagish and LEF both came together and gave me a wonderful day! And Nagish! My world has just popped open another dimension! I won’t be dreading phone calls ever again!

Best text-based voice calling

I’ve used a TTY and IP relay before. Nowadays I can’t stand being obligated to type GA, SK and other abbreviations. Nagish eliminates those with its full automation of text-based calling to voice phone numbers. Voicemail transcriptions are more accurate than other visual voicemail services I’ve used in the past. I love how Nagish captions my calls but also allows me to listen to my caller. That way if they put me on hold I get to hear the hold music. I now use Nagish for ALL business voice calls, especially with businesses who wanna be able to leave me voicemails.

Accurate dependable captioning!

Am so grateful to have Nagish in my life! Being able to use my own mobile number a big big benefit! My previous phone captioning provider was also good but had to use a different number so the people i was calling could not recognize that it was me calling. Nagish provides both accurate dependable captioning and , a big plus, the ability to use my own mobile number. Thank you so much, Nagish. I feel like i have a new life being able to make telephone calls inspite my severe hearing disability.
