🧐 FAQs:

  • Do I need to put the call on speaker or can I use headphones?

    We recommend either using headphones or putting the phone on speaker so you can read read the captions during the phone call!

    As for your conversation partner, they too don't need to have the call on speaker (unless, of course, they want captions!)

  • Is this compatible with my cell phone service?

    Yes, so long as you can make calls and you are calling a number with an area code of either +1 (USA), +31 (Netherlands), or +33 (France), you can use Ava to caption your calls!

For Free Ava users:

You will need two devices to caption a phone call! Simply put your cell phone on speaker phone next to another device that is running Ava. Once you have Ava up and running, start talking to your intended conversation partner and watch as Ava captions your call!

There you go! Enjoy 🤟
