In meetings

Ai Live is an online service that allows audio to be converted into text in real time. All that is needed is a device connected to the internet alongside a microphone. This allows Ai’s captioners to convert the words spoken into text. As Ai Live uses real people and not computers, it is essential for the Ai captioning team to be able to hear the conversation being had. This can be done through a direct phone call, a Zoom call or a live webinar.

A communications company that provides remote conferencing services using cloud computing. That can be used for Ai Live captioners. Zoom offers communication software that combines video conferencing, online meetings, chat and mobile collaboration.

Live Transcribe

Having conversations just became easier with an Android phone. Live transcribe instantly turns spoken words into text. It has over 70 languages to choose from and because it uses Google Speech Recognition it can correct speech mishaps throughout a conversation. If you were talking about a Yorkshire Terrier rather than New York it will correct it throughout the conversation. And, it’s free to download on a 1.8B Android device operating 5.0 Lollipop and up. 

Ava

Ava is an app that allows hard of hearing or deaf users to stay connected by being able to read a conversation that is being spoken by others. It works by having all users join one conversation, and converting all the callers speech to text.
