VANCOUVER, British Columbia (PRWEB) October 29, 2020
Singular Hearing, a subsidiary of Singular Software and creator of HeardThat, announced today it launched an early release of its HeardThat app for Android. For those with hearing loss, noisy environments like shops and restaurant patios can make it nearly impossible to hold conversations. HeardThat turns Android devices into powerful hearing assistive devices to make voices more clear.
HeadThat’s AI and machine learning software was built using thousands of hours of recorded speech and noise to learn the difference between speech and ambient noise. Rather than amplifying or reducing all sound entirely, HeardThat separates speech from noise to deliver enhanced voice audio while minimizing background noise.
Smartphones have the processing power, memory and battery life to support HeardThat’s powerful algorithms, unlike small wearable hearing devices. The app works in conjunction with earphones or hearing aids when connected to an Android, either directly or via Bluetooth.
HeardThat also works with transcription apps, like Google’s Live Caption, on the Google Pixel and other supported phones.
“Years of research and development have gone into creating HeardThat,” said Singular Hearing CEO Dr. Bruce Sharpe. “Our team has built an app that delivers enhanced voice clarity like no other solution on the market. As a standalone app, HeardThat is an incredibly powerful tool. Because HeardThat is software-based, it is easy for anyone to try. It also enables us to update it quickly as it is improved.”
Android users can download the app at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.singsoftnext.deephearing. All features are free for a limited time.
