A handy application with speech to text translation for deaf people, allowing a deaf person to write a note for a hearing person. This note will be displayed in large type and will be clearly visible on the device screen. This application allows a deaf person to talk with a hearing person, passing the phone to each other.
The application has a very useful feature for translating speech into text, which comes in handy in two cases:
1. When a deaf person and a hearing person pass each other the phone during a conversation, a hearing person presses the Listen button. When he or she speaks, the app translates the speech into text, displaying the message on the device screen.
2. A deaf person can direct the phone or a connected external microphone toward a hearing person, press the Listen button and listen to what the hearing person says to the deaf person.

I am a deaf person and this application is great!! I can hand my phone to anyone, they speak into the phone and it converts the speach to text. I read lips and find it very helpful in restaurants where lip reading is very difficult.

I love that I can chat to my deaf father without having to constantly scribble things down

Great app but needs a fix
It worked great for a while until "Listen" stopped working. No text appeared on display after you spoke into it. Please fix? Thank you for inventing this app!
Great app for RNs to communicate with hearing impaired patients
Today I provided emergency nursing care for a patient that is hearing impaired. The hospital's ASL interpreter was not readily available...the patient used this app to communicate with me and the physician. I was impressed with the accuracy in translation from voice to text. I now have downloaded the app.
I have attempted to use the app numerous times and have never had it operate successfully for more than two or three words, it is difficult to observe the screen when talking because if you hold the phone more than 3 inches from your mouth an error message comes on stating insufficient volume. This is a wonderful tool but needs more more work.
