SpeechTrans Ultimate for Hearing Impaired
A new iPhone app is designed to help the deaf hold real-time conversations in English, Spanish, French, Japanese, Italian and German and Mandarin Chinese without the need for sign language or an interpreter being present. SpeechTrans Ultimate for Hearing Impaired does not require an Internet connection. The hearing person speaks slowly and clearly into the user's mobile device and a translated automatically appears on the screen. A Facebook chat option lets users type and have the other party receive a translation on a SpeechTrans enabled iPhone or iPad or directly on a computer. The app costs $99 and is available in Apple's App Store.
