This application simply displays the words that it hears on the screen in large letters.

It was written as an aid to communication with deaf people. I have shared it here just in case other people find it useful.

The size of the font can be configured.

It continually listens and displays text when a sentence has finished. As with all apps that use the Google speech recognition service, it is better to speak slowly and clearly.

V1.0 - First release
V1.1 - Added reverse scroll feature, improved scrolling
V1.2 - Fixed intermittent crash, added clear text feature

So perfect app for DEAF !!! Lots of obstacles for us Deafies, but this just let me have a conversation with my Dad in Australia !! I live in Finland and my father is super technology-challenged and refuses to use smartphones and computers. With your app I put my Samsung S3 onto loud speaker and had your app working alongside it on my Samsung Galaxy 10.1.......... it wrote his every word with almost exact precision. THANK YOU SO MUCH !! Still have tears in my eyes... :)

Super interactively. A really fantastic app, which is one of a kind. Please, can you also add option to select and copy of text? Also, can you uppercase first letter of new sentences?

Kioney Alvira

Perfect! It tell me what hearing people say to me

Marlene Torres

Omg!!! THANKS DEV!! I have been looking for an app like this forever! It recognizes speech extremely well, and for my family whom I always ask to repeat themselves, they love this! Thank you so much for making this, and thanks for the "clear" button!

Text needs to have a larger option

so far looks really good I'm testing this for my 95-year-old father-in-law, comparing with other apps; PROS: doesn't require internet access, can adjust font pretty large for someone who also has vision problems; keeps history of current chatting to refer back to (one suggestion would be to put the newest conversation on top because as you speak more and more, the latest speech scrolls off the screen at the bottom). I like it so far; will test with him in a couple of days.

very simple and easy to use I need a totally fool-proof app for my mother to use, and this looks good. there's a bug whereby it doesn't automatically scroll when the page is full of text when you have chosen the large font.

Deaf sms how talk Best your me Help goods wow

The best one I tried a couple other apps that cost money and this one trumps them all. It's extremely fast and more accurate. I wish there was a way to pay for it and remove the ad, but other than that it's fine.

Krysten Williams

OMG so accurate So happy i can finally communicate with my grandma and relatives!!! BEST APP EVER

Shyla Rose

Amazing... I have a serious speech issue in addition to being mostly deaf, which really bites. I've just installed this app, and I've tested it a few times. It has caught everything I said. Everything

Colin Swarts

Mr Never tried it yet, but gosh anything that can improve my hearing condition I will try. My life is complicated and miserable since I became deaf due a head injury. I cannot even find employment anymore. The work field are discriminated towards us deaf people. Thank you inventors for helping us.

Good Apps I wish you that it's a great hearing mice from deaf.

Mike Wilson

This is good, really good.

This would be the perfect app for communicating with my deaf 90 year old father if it didn't hang up. It hangs on both my devices one running android 4.2.2 and the other 5.0. If you speak a message and don't say anything else for 30 seconds you can no longer get it to recognise voice without minimising and then maximising. It won't respond to pushing the stop button but will to others. The only way it is useful is to push stop after saying something and then push listen each time you want to say something. I really hope that someone has found a fix for this as anyone who knows someone who is profoundly deaf needs this app . the fact you could change the font size is really good.

REALLY Wish This Worked (on my phone) This app was what I'd hoped to find to help me fill in the gaps when others don't speak loud/clear enough to understand. It will load which a few other apps won't. I choose "Listen" but unfortunately it does nothing but show the ad banner. Will try reinstalling after another update because this looks very promising based on others' reviews.


I rejected the option to remove ads. Now I would like to pay for an ad free version but can't find a way to do that.

Mark Fleischman

This is excellent This app really catches speech well and displays clearly what is spoken for those who have difficulty hearing.

Tao Exile

Does not hear good and I should know I voice type this review

Paul Mansfield

Simple but effective, stops working though When this works it's great. But it stops detecting sound and printing, and I have to stop it listening and start again.
