New Android App Helps Hearing Impaired
Using a mobile phone can be quite challenging for someone who is hearing impaired, so what would be a good idea is if mobile phone calls came with subtitles so those with hearing difficulties could read what was being said.
Well according to an article over on Slash Gear and by way of Android Community, there’s a new application available on the Android Market called Hamilton Mobile CapTel which enables the hard of hearing to read and hear what is being said by way of a headset.
The new Android application is also compatible with Droid devices, and with this new app coming to Android the Hamilton Mobile CapTel app is now available on Android, the iPhone and also BlackBerry smartphones.
The app enables the user to receive real-time conversation captioning and specific Android handsets that support this new application include the Samsung Epic 4G, HTC Aria and Motorola Backflip along with those Droid handsets.
