App MyEar and App MyGroup – Both Apple apps for the deaf and hard-of-hearing communities

 

App MyEar – An Apple app for the deaf and hard-of-hearing communities

 

Real-time voice-to-text transcription on the go. Stop guessing what people are saying and know with certainty

Are you deaf and tired of lipreading? Even the best lipreaders follow ~22% of their conversations – imagine what you’re missing out on.

MyEar App was developed by Gerald Isobe, deaf hall-of-fame golfer and his son, Brandon.

Gerald grew up lipreading but became frustrated with understanding only 30% of what was being said and tired of asking people around him “what are you talking about?” This app was created from those frustrations and it’s an app he and others are using to communicate with their hearing colleagues, friends, and family.

 

 

 

 

 

No more guessing

Are you tired of lipreading and asking others what they’re talking about? App MyEar was designed to solve this problem and give you insight into what others are saying in their natural language, and not simplified speech. See what people are really saying with App MyEar

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your backup plan if an interpreter doesn’t show up

Sometimes an ASL interpreter is running late to an appointment or caught in traffic and won’t be able to make it or the Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) isn’t working because of weak WiFi connectivity.

This is where App MyEar can come in handy. If the above methods aren’t working, App MyEar will be there for you to transcribe what the other person is saying so you don’t have to guess.

 

 

 

 

 

Straightforward Pricing

One time fee cost with free upgrades whenever they roll out a new software update.

For Emergency Situations

If a police officer were to pull you over, would you be able to effectively understand what the officer is saying at night? Most likely not. This is where App MyEar can help. It’ll transcribe what the officer is saying so you aren’t guessing or trying to figure out what the officer is saying at a heightened time.

Last Minute Meetings or Presentations and no time to call an ASL Interpreter

Sometimes last-minute meetings have to happen and we get it.

Just open up App MyEar and you can use it for long presentations and it will pick up what is being said.

Exposure to new words and topics

TV captions and ASL interpreters aren’t translating 100% word-for-word what people are saying on TV or over the phone.  However, you may not realize it until you try out App MyEar. App MyEar will expose you to every word people are saying. There is no filter with App MyEar.
