Gregory Swanson of Australia has listed a set of apps that could level the playing field for students with hearing impairments. 

 

He has included a variety of apps including apps that offer subtitles, text-to-speech and speech-to-text to sound amplification apps and books that read. He makes a note about sign language apps in that there are many good versions that can be searched in the app store.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, December 15, 2012 4:54 PM

Paul Hamilton has shared a free iPad app that has improved with age.  You can use your iPad camera to photograph text and import it as editable text.  How great is that?

 

He makes a  particular note of the other features that can level the playing field:

 

>> Text can be entered with keyboard, via voice-to-text, or with stylus.  >> As well, audio recordings can be attached to notes. >> Notes can be written on yellow or white lined pages, on blank white pages, or on “graph paper”.PDF files, can be imported from almost anywhere–PaperPort Anywhere (dedicated free cloud storage), Box, Dropbox, Docs Folder, Files/Snapshots from the Web, the iPad’s Clipboard, camera images. >> Text boxes and sticky notes can be added to notes and imported files. >> Multi-color highlighting is available.

 

Thank you Paul for featuring this great app!
