Real-time speech captioning app to improve communication for people with hearing loss


What is NALscribe?

NALscribe is a free, easy-to-use live speech captioning tool to help people with hearing difficulties understand speech and conversations. It aims to increase understanding and decrease stress levels during communication.

NALscribe is especially beneficial when the person speaking is wearing a mask or face-shield, when communication is more difficult because the lips are hidden and sound is muffled.

“My father-in-law is profoundly deaf now for many years and we have been searching for any way we can use technology to assist us in communicating, especially with family get togethers… even around his home. It has been a largely frustrating journey of trying all sorts of things… We just came across your app yesterday and just want to say a huge Thank You… it will transform his life and give us all more interaction and access to our father and grandfather.”
