Ava gives the deaf and hard-of-hearing a more present voice in group conversations

Summarized by Abby Wilson, staff writer

A new app for the deaf and hard-of-hearing community has recently launched and is on track to being very successful within the community. Ava is a phone application that can be used to include deaf and hard-of-hearing people in everyday conversation through speech-to-text technology. Conversations are recorded and displayed on the user’s phone so they can follow along with what’s being said and actively engage in the discussion. It’s easy to use and is a great way to communicate with the people around you.

The creators of the app set a goal to release Ava in time for Thanksgiving this year and they were successful at achieving this goal, making it easier for the millions of people in the deaf and hard-of-hearing community to communicate with their loved ones during this holiday season.
