As per the reports of the World Health Organisation (WHO), approximately 900 million people will have hearing loss by the year 2025. Google wants to make the lives of such people more comfortable with the use of technology through smartphone apps.
Google has collaborated with Gallaudet University to launch two new apps for Android designed to help deaf and hard-of-hearing people.
Live Transcribe which is one of the apps, actually translates spoken words in real-time. It translates the conversation to show you words on the phone as they are spoken. It presently supports 70 languages and dialects.
In the initial stage, the app will roll out to limited beta users across the world. It will feature as pre-installed on the Google Pixel 3 devices.
The sound amplifier makes the audio more clear and easy to listen. You can increase and amplify the sounds in your environment.
You can customize the sound to increase the required sound and reduce background noise.
On the Play Store, the app is available and compatible with Android Pie 9 and above. It is welcomed as pre-installed on Pixel 3.
