Ava is a mobile app for deaf/hard-of-hearing students, used in pairing with any Bluetooth microphone to provide a real-time transcript of any lecture.
Because they’re not that often interpreted/captioned, classrooms can be very challenging for deaf/hard-of-hearing students. Teachers can speak fast and be hard to lip-read. Ava has been designed for helping deaf/hard-of-hearing people understand better in these situations.
An active student life also happens outside of the classroom, far from any accessibility service provided. Deaf/hard-of-hearing students should not be forced to miss out on dorm conversations, group study sessions, cafeteria discussions, workshops and whatnots.
