We are thrilled to share that InnoCaption received an Honorable Mention for the Hearing Technology Innovative Awards Assistive Technology & Software category. The Hearing Technology Innovator Awards™ is an international awards program designed to recognize and celebrate innovation within the hearing industry. At InnoCaption, our team has always focused on putting the accessibility needs of its users in the deaf and hard of hearing community first and foremost, enabling us to drive innovation since launching the InnoCaption mobile app in 2016.
Through the annual awards program, Hearing Health & Technology Matters (HHTM) recognizes technological innovation and achievement in the hearing industry. This year’s awards program saw dozens of innovative technologies, submitted from companies across the globe, and we are honored to have been considered among all of the other amazing innovators in this category.
The Assistive Technologies and Software category recognizes products and services designed to enhance accessibility for people with hearing loss. From smartphone apps, to captioning software and much more, we are grateful to be part of the community developing technology to assist and provide accessibility for the approximately 48 million Americans in the deaf and hard of hearing community.
InnoCaption’s mission is to offer the best telecommunications accessibility solution to the deaf and hard of hearing, a mission based on the team’s own personal experiences and passion. The need for technology to assist with virtual communication has grown over time and most recently became a necessity as a result of the pandemic. Users of InnoCaption are able to choose between live stenographers or automated speech recognition (ASR) for all of their real-time phone call captioning needs, whether at home, at work, or in emergencies. InnoCaption is the first mobile app to provide real-time captioning of smartphone calls to the deaf and hard of hearing at no cost primarily through stenographers, and now with additional captioning directly on a laptop or desktop screen.
