New App for Group Convo’s

A mobile app to make group conversations possible between deaf people and their hearing peers is here. The Transcense app “listens” and interprets conversations, providing real-time captioning on mobile devices.

According to the researchers who created the app,  group conversations are“possible and effortless” for the hearing impaired. The researchers are from Berkeley and University of San Francisco graduates from the US, France, the Netherlands, and Taiwan.

Transcense connects multiple smartphones belonging to conversation participants in a room and leverages their microphones so the app can “listen” to those speaking.
