App that deaf users can chat on
July 9, 2017
Ava is a new app that lets deaf users chat with many people at the same time.
Thanks to this innovative tool, a person who is deaf or has a serious hearing impairment can be interactive and participate in group discussions.
Ava converts verbal statements from many individuals into written, visual subtitles within less than a second. Up to 12 participants can visualize what others are saying because each user's communication is shown in a different color. This helps participating in the dialogue.
Ava uses the voice recognition technology, and the subtitling capability can help the deaf feel less frustrated and isolated.
