iCantHear: Talk To The Hearing Impaired With Ease

March 16, 2015 — by Adeel Qayum0

Most of you, at some point, would become familiar with ASLS’s few phrases; however, you might not be well equipped with ASL to have a conversion with an individual with a hearing impairment and you have to engage with them in a conversation.

Also, if the iPhone user has hearing impairment and has the need to talk to someone who isn’t aware of ASL, there is a problem. Luckily, in both situations, the owner of the iPhone can use the app called iCantHear to talk to the hearing impaired with ease.

How to Use iCantHear on iOS

First of all, download and install the iCantHear app on your device and ensure the dictation is turned on. The app is going to present a simple URL that must be installed and launched on the other phone before you start communication. The device can be a laptop, a tablet, or a smartphone.

Then, tap the mic button on the keyboard of your device and say what you want. The app will then process what you said and display the text for what it thinks you stated.

The URL present on the other device will display the same text message so the hearing impaired individual can read the text and respond. It was quite accurate during the tests. Also, if the person being considered doesn’t speak the same language as the user, the URL where the next version is displayed has a translation tool that turns out to be quite accurate.

If this app was to be well described, it would be called a text-to-speech tool as it comes in handy with you have little or no options speaking to impaired individuals and communication becomes essential.
