Campus accessibility: give students an opportunity for 24/7 accessibility

Ava is a mobile app that everyone (coworkers, family members, friends) downloads on their smartphone. By connecting each smartphone’s microphone via the app, Ava captions what the group says on the deaf/hard-of-hearing person phone. They can then answer by either talking, or if they have a “Deaf” voice, typing. Ava can even voice the deaf person’s answer.

An active student life also happens outside of the classroom, far from any accessibility service provided. Deaf/hard-of-hearign students should not be forced to miss out on dorm conversations, group study sessions, cafeteria discussions, workshops and whatnots.

Though they’re often interpreted/captioned, classrooms can be very challenging for deaf/hard-of-hearing students when it’s not the case. Fast speaking pace, teachers’ movement, difficulty of reading lips at a distance, comments of the students missed… When accessibility services are not available, Ava may be a great option.

If you’re a teacher/education professionals who is facing these issues and you are interested in seeing how Ava can help, please leave us your information.
