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.
Though VRI services are usually available, in many situations it takes a long time to connect to one, andvery important health information can be lost in the conversation with deaf/hard-of-hearing people. Ava is an option for patients to communicate with doctors, heath professionals & medical staff, when time is not an option.
If you’re a healthcare professional who is facing these issues and you are interested in seeing how Ava can help, please leave us your information.
