SH Feb 6: Google launches two Android apps for the deaf

Google has launched two new apps that will cater to the deaf and  the hearing impaired. In a recent blog post, the company mentioned the apps Live Transcribe and Sound Amplifier, designed mainly for the Android OS. The apps which come pre-installed on Pixel 3 phones in accessibility settings will also be available in the Google Play Store. According to the post, Live Transcript is an app that automatically transcribes speech in near-real time allowing people to communicate in peculiar situations where communications would be difficult. Sound Amplifier on the other hand is an app designed for people with hearing loss, allowing such users to tweak sound settings to improve the quality of their hearing.
