HEARING in NOISE and difficult situations

“Live Transcribe” now helps you communicate in the difficult listening situations.

With “Live Transcribe”, you can see words appear on your Android phone as they’re spoken.

If it seems like someone says New York, but they’re actually talking about new Yorkshire terriers, the captions will autocorrect on your Android phone.

Pick from over 70 languages and dialects to read accurate captions in the language that’s being spoken. Quickly switch between languages during bilingual conversations.

“Live Transcribe” is easy to use, anywhere you have a wifi or network connection. It’s free to download on over 1.8B Android devices operating with 5.0 Lollipop and up.

To start, simply use “Live Transcribe” anywhere, to have conversations with anyone.

We partnered with “Gallaudet University“, a premier school for the deaf and hard of hearing, to make sure that “Live Transcribe” was helpful for everyday use. Partners at Gallaudet helped with testing and improvements along the way.
