Simple, but mighty
I have a deaf uncle who also has poor vision, and I don’t have the time to learn ASL. This app makes it very easy to communicate, I particularly appreciate the choice of bold, sans-serif font and the fact that the text resizes. Function takes center position, the menu lets you type with one tap immediately after opening with no elaborate menu or control panel. On top of that, it looks slick and modern, with high contrast, soft gradients and subtle shadows do not get in the way. It’s the perfect deaf aid for friends and family.
When you can't talk...
When you can't talk, download Statement. Really easy interface. Type in a message and it's displayed in big easy-to-read lettering for you to show to someone, if you're deaf or mute, or in an impossibly noisy environment. Simple. Saving messages is great too.
I use this app to communicate with my grandfather who is hard of hearing. It works great. He was so happy when he could feel like he was part of the conversation again. The only thing that irks me is when I try to use speech-to-text on iOS the text appears but then disappears immediately. It would make the use of this app so much more mainstreamed and practical if the speech-to-text worked on the app.
Fix this and it would be 5 stars!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
