About this app

Deaf Pad helps Deaf and hard of hearing people understand speech.

Think of it as a quick and easy note pad that takes advantage of Speech Recognition.

Hearing individuals speak into the microphone. Their speech is transcribed to text and displayed in the note pad. Deaf individuals can use the soft-keypad, if needed, to type their response.

There are Speech Recognition apps included with Android, but Deaf Pad offers several convenient features that make it especially useful:

Download the free version to sample Deaf Pad. Deaf Pad Pro enhanced features include:

● Simulated Continuous Speech Recognition allows Deaf Pad to follow conversations – you can place the phone on the dinner table and follow the conversation, or have the phone recognize speech during a presentation.

● Several devices can connect via a local Wi-Fi network to allow real-time communication among users. For example, Deaf or hard-of-hearing members of an audience could each have a phone or tablet to receive a real-time transcript from the speaker.

● The Speech Recognition language can be chosen from a menu – it is not limited to the default language of the phone.

● Recognized speech can be translated to a different language.

● Works with or without an Internet connection.

● Deaf Pad supports display themes.

● The note pad text size can be adjusted. Also, the note pad text is saved and restored next time Deaf Pad is run.

● Enabling Keep Alive prevents the phone from turning off unexpectedly.

With Google Play's new Family Library feature you may be able to share a single purchase of Deaf Pad among multiple users.

Deaf Pad works on both phones and tablets. It contains no Ads and no In-App purchases.

Access Quick Help from the menu (upper right, 3 dots) or read the complete help file, with privacy policy, by pressing the blue ? (lower right).

I use Deaf Pad daily to talk with relatives, at the doctor's office, in stores, …

See the pro version, Deaf Pad Pro, for these additional features.

I'm sorry DPFree did not meet your expectations. Many people use the free version and forgo the additional features of DPPro. I have priced DPPro to be less than a single cup of coffee within the USA. I hope that Google has translated the price for different currencies so that the cost is approximately equivalent. Sorry to see you go.
