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.
