the Closed Capp app

Graphic designer Ryan Flynn once worked on voice-recognition technologies at Motorola and now has created an Andriod app he says will create real-time closed captioning. Closed Capp doesn't transcribe phone calls, but will capture 5-10 seconds of speech and then processes it. Find out more about the Closed Capp app here or watch a video below about it on DeafNewsToday.com. Please comment if you have used the app to let others know how it works for you.

The ClosedCapp app works nicely when the phone is held close to your mouth, but is not effective for group conversations, like a meeting or presentation. It uses the Internet-based Google voice-to-text capability, so you need to allow your data to flow without Data Saver enabled. Nice value for the price if you need it.
