India gets its first smartphone-based hearing aid app
May 22, 2016
A Pune-based startup has introduced an app that uses mobile technology to help hearing impaired people customise their listening experience.
Called Q+, the app offers different modes that heighten hearing in different situations like when at a restaurant, or while driving.
It also has a mode which makes it easier to watch TV, or watch videos.
Developers of the app say that a smartphone app offers more flexible controls than hearing aids.
The app is available for free on Google Play and iTunes.
