About Speech2RTT Communications

Speech2RTT® is an Android application that enables people who are deaf, hard of hearing, and non-verbal to communicate with anyone, including people who can hear and speak, using their Android smartphone. Speech2RTT works across all wireless networks. It transcribes and then streams the text of what is being said, in real-time, between individuals. If a user cannot speak, or opts not to speak, they can type what they want to say, in real-time. Speech2RTT is available on Google Play and accommodates transcribing any one of 68 languages. Communications are 100% private. No live communications assistants (CAs) are involved. No limits are imposed on the length of a communication. Best of all, it is being offered at no cost until October 1, 2018, at which time a $12 annual fee will be assessed for continued use.
