AppWatch

Though it’s something seamless for most, those who are Deaf or hard of hearing will always find making or receiving a phone call challenging

Luckily, there’s a technological solution that can help them out. This video relay service connects those who are deaf with a real-live interpreter. Pretty awesome, right?

This video relay service is called Convo.

Convo is a communications solutions company that has one of largest Deaf-owned businesses in the world. Convo has developed a video relay service app that Deaf people use to make phone calls and can more effectively communicate with others.

This American Sign Language translation service functions by connecting callers with a live interpreter who relays every word VERBATIM from the hearing caller and vice versa.

The interpreter goes back and forth, signing to one caller and speaking to the other.

To make things even more efficient, the interpreters are trained to incorporate cultural understanding as they translate in order to remain authentic to the Deaf person’s essence.

Convo is also available in the workplace which can heighten the communication experience and help make the most of the workflow. Those who use Convo can create an automated greeting message and customize it to how they see fit. Convo also offers voice and visual customization options for your Deaf and hearing callers.

In addition, Convo includes contacts, a directory of Deaf-owned businesses and other resources for Deaf people, and a pretty cool visual ringing system that employs Philips Hue.

The app is available for download for macOS, iOS, and Android. If you’re interested in learning more about Convo, you can head to their website by visiting https://convo.click/2hJyBVk today.
