"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
