RogerVoice Enables Deaf People to Make Phone Calls

Seventy million people around the world have profound to severe hearing loss and cannot use the phone. RogerVoice aims to change that. It is the first worldwide mobile app for hard-of-hearing individuals that subtitles phone conversations in real time. Designed from the ground up for those who cannot hear on the phone, RogerVoice installs on your smartphone or tablet and instantly transcribes what the person on the other end of the line is saying.

RogerVoice makes it easy for hard-of-hearing people to get in touch with others via phone. It is also useful in situations when you have to call someone, such as participating in a telephone job interview, inquiring about an apartment listing, setting up a doctor's appointment, booking household services, ordering food delivery, and more. With RogerVoice, deaf individuals do not need to rely on other people to make phone calls for them and can take charge of their life.

RogerVoice works anytime, anywhere and supports several languages, including English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German, Greek, Japanese, and more. The service does not employ human intermediaries, so all calls remain private and confidential. In addition, it uses the latest available technology to provide superior voice recognition, lightning-fast data processing, quality call platforms, and an enjoyable user experience.

RogerVoice is not just for the hard of hearing and can serve as a productivity tool at home and at work as well. Get instant written minutes of your phone calls, archive your conversations, and search them at a later time. The app will be released on Android first, with iOS and Windows versions to follow. The RogerVoice team plans to add more features down the line.

RogerVoice is currently running a campaign on Kickstarter and has raised nearly $32,000 so far. The funds will go toward the final phase of development; RogerVoice is slated for delivery at the end of the year.
