Generate high-quality transcriptions and comprehensive captions for the deaf and hard-of-hearing community.

According to the World Health Organization, there are an estimated 460 million people globally who are deaf or hard of hearing.  With a focus on conversational transcriptions and captioning of audio-visual media, AppTek’s advanced Automatic Speech Recognition technology can help bring deaf and hard of hearing individuals back into the conversation.  By employing AppTek’s assistive technology, individuals can make use of real-time streaming speech-to-text conversion,  and deploy it in meetings, schools, in the office or at home.  Our advanced speaker diarization helps users identify a change in speaker, and highlight the names of individuals talking inside multi-participant conversations. Additionally, AppTek’s text-to-speech services allow users who have difficulty speaking to type via keyboard and have that input  instantly converted to audible speech.
