Best Practices for any Face-to-Face Conversations

📲  Hold the phone near the speaker with the microphone on. Keep the phone within 1 to 2 feet or less of the speaker so Ava can hear what they are saying.

📴 Make sure you have stable internet connection. If you can't connect to WiFi or good LTE, use Ava in Offline Mode.

🎙 Background Noise? Consider getting a Bluetooth microphone to use with Ava. Pass a Bluetooth microphone so Ava can "hear" from farther away.

🔄  Rotate your phone and ask your friend to speak clearly. Bring the phone closer to the speaker and turn the phone (make sure your orientation isn't locked!). This helps improve accuracy.

⌨️  Reply by using the keyboard. Simply open the keyboard and type away. The text will automatically appear and you can also use Ava Voice to voice for you!

Correct Ava’s typos. Correct any mis-captioned words by tapping on the word and pressing “Edit” or “Delete.” This helps Ava learn for the future!

👯‍♀️ Ask people to join you on Ava. They don't even need to download the app! Learn about group conversations on Ava here.
