About this app

Led by Hugo, the world’s most lovable 3D interpreter, the Hand Talk app automatically translates text and audio to American Sign Language (ASL) [Beta] and Brazilian Sign Language (Libras) through artificial Intelligence.

If you’re interested in learning a new language in a practical and fun way, the Hand Talk app is the right choice for you!

There are over 466 million deaf and hard of hearing people in the world, and Hand Talk, elected the World’s Best Social App by the UN, emerges as a pocket translator with the goal of bringing people together through technology and communication.

You can rate Hugo’s translations and save your favourite ones, adjust Hugo’s speed, customize his clothes and background in Hugo’s Store and much more!

The Hand Talk app is a powerful tool, used in the most diverse contexts:
• In the classroom, by teachers, students and interpreters as a complementary communication resource;
• At home, by families with deaf and hearing people;
• By sign language students that want to improve their vocabulary with Hugo’s Help.

It's great when it works. I paid to remove ads, which leads you to believe it is a one-time payment, but it's not. It's not a horrible deal IF it actually removed the ads. It doesn't. I have contacted customer support several times. Every update causes new problems. As of 1900hrs on 10-24 WITH the current update, I still have the ads I paid to remove. 12/23, another update, more ads.

Had the opportunity to use the app with someone who is deaf. The person used a pen and pad, I used "Hugo". The app allowed for work to get done with little misunderstanding. Our interaction went so much faster and much more accurate. The person was pleased with Hugo. They were able to obtain so much more info than by me writing it. The downside is that sometimes it hears me wrong. It causes confusion. Easy fix though! Just repeat yourself. Overall, it's an awesome app!!!

I really like this app! But it continues to have ads even though I paid to have them stopped. Especially because its happening every other time I ask for a word or questions. This is really frustrating when I'm trying so hard to learn ASL because my brother can no longer speak. Otherwise, compared to the ones I paid for its a great app. Please address this issue. I could give it a 4-5 but not until I can get the ads removed.
