  • Awesome
    by ascurry on 2021-04-18 at 4:11 AM

    Good voice Recognition software your AI technology is amazing. I can’t wait to see the other features you have for the future.

  • Excellent so far

  • My girlfriend is hard of hearing
    by Safe driver! on 2021-04-14 at 1:52 PM

    This is a great app! Real time speech recognition is paramount for people who are in a relationship with someone who is hearing impaired. My girlfriend is hard of hearing, and the only time I can be sure she hears everything is if it’s read. I get frustrated sometimes when I have something important to say, but she doesn’t hear me. And instead of asking me to repeat myself, because she’s so nice, she agrees and nods. That works most of the time but I know she’s just being nice when I ask a question and she nods in agreement. I sometimes act like I didn’t ask a question, as to not make her aware that I know.

  • Recent total hearing loss
    by jb93003 on 2021-04-04 at 5:43 PM

    This is a sanity saver. However, we’re hoping for the app to learn as we go. My voice is loud and sharper than my husband’s. His voice has more softness. My voice is translated very well. But I’m the one who needs to hear from him, and translation from a soft voice is much less accurate. His soft-toned voice is often garbled. It does help if he is closer to the iPad or mobile phone and slows his speech some. The app does what it is supposed to do, so I give it 4 stars. There is room for improvement so can’t give 5 stars (I’ve heard). Thank you.

  • It’s great for one on one, especially for a medical reason.
    by Adealg on 2021-04-01 at 6:12 PM

    It’s been very useful for deaf people like me for a medical reason. It works great for one on one but not at the dinner table.

  • Expensive for infrequent use
    by Twilightfire on 2021-03-30 at 7:13 PM

    I am Deaf and was looking for a speech to text app. Didn’t read anything in the app store that said this was a paid subscription. It’s $5 a month! Pretty expensive for an app I will only use once in a while. None of my apps are this expensive. Using Notes on iPhone is free. Bummer because this looks really cool.

  • Missing words
    by DrStem on 2021-03-14 at 1:03 AM

    I notice during the translation to words it misses and misspells a lot of the words so I hav Efi go back delisted and correct a lot but better than listening and writing all words from scratch

  • So far first minute ok. My voice only,

  • Great help for hearing disabilities
    by Dobie E. on 2021-03-12 at 12:28 AM

    I have 6% understanding. This app has has been a Godsend. I take it with me wherever I go. This year has been so difficult because people wear masks. I’m used to reading lips. Thank you for this. It has made my life and relationships much easier. I’m sharing it with all my friends who have difficulty hearing. God bless all of you!

  • Hearing impaired
    by Dfitchick on 2021-03-05 at 2:57 AM

    Love this app used it for the first time at my doctors appointment and it was amazing!!!

  • Not accurate
    by Thieftaker on 2021-02-28 at 9:01 PM

    Does not transcribe General American medial vowels or voiceless consonants.

  • It still won’t pick up voices
    by DJ7055 on 2021-02-24 at 12:31 AM

    It is garbling with words that does not make any sense. I need voice to text from listening to my mother’s Answering machine. It wont work at all. I am very disappointed and helpless.

  • Live Transcribe
    by Don0802 on 2021-02-23 at 7:53 AM

    This is a great application. Is there any way my voice can be blocked out. So I can just see what the other person is saying?

  • The Captioning Stopped at the Beginning ofMy Event
    by Cinshhh on 2021-02-13 at 9:31 PM

    I guess I will have to go back to Otter. This was unacceptable, with the captions just stopped early on during event. When they were working they were less accurate and fast than Otter.

  • I’m not impressed
    by Daves1975 on 2021-02-10 at 12:25 AM

    My mother used this app. I went to visit her and I put the free 14 day trail version. If the free version was supposed to impress me, it didn’t. It was kept messing up what I would say. It got frustrating when it got the translation wrong. I had better translation with iMessage. I don’t not like it. I think the translation to be better like I said iMessage work better than this app. I did like the fact you can split sentences when it ends. See what else is out there before you get this app.

  • Communicate with my elderly mother
    by sarahbastovim on 2021-01-31 at 9:32 PM

    Works well

  • Live Transcribe
    by IronGeeks on 2021-01-26 at 5:20 PM

    Free trial for 7 Days? I'll stick with Android phone which is free. I'm deaf and I was thinking of switching to iPhone 13 when it comes out, good thing I checked before getting the iPhone. I found Live Transcribe for deaf people to be very effective, especially with COVID-19 pandemic, now a lot of people will not remove their mask. Which is ok because my trusting Live Transcribe on Android phone made it possible for me to fathom what the person is saying with the mask on. I'll be sticking with Android for sure.

  • This is great!
    by catsujo on 2021-01-15 at 3:44 PM

    I have a friend who has hearing loss. This helps to communicate! Works great!

  • Useless
    by firesprite1105 on 2021-01-11 at 4:47 PM

    I’m severely hearing impaired and had high hopes for this app since all my work conferences are not closed captioned. This app wasn’t able to caption a single thing. I am also not thrilled that I was billed $50 for a yearly subscription after 7 days instead of $5 for a month. I cancelled immediately, but I’m still out of $50, so be warned!

  • Sudden deafness
    by 🍇🍉🍏🍋 on 2021-01-09 at 10:40 PM

    I had surgery and two days later became deaf. We began using the notes app and it was most helpful and then I looked to find something better and came across this app and gave it a try. It has been a life saver and has connected me back with my family and now I spend more time thinking about living versus dying. I would say transcribe technology has save my life. 47 year old male Bank President and CEO

  • Appreciate
    by AliciaAurora on 2021-01-09 at 1:31 AM

    I appreciate using Live transcribe because this app helps me communicate with my 93 year old mother who is deaf. It’s been a life saver, especially when we go to doctors’ appointments because with live transcribe my mom can follow the conversation and answer questions with ease. We appreciate the ease and the reliability of this wonderful product. Live transcribe offers my mother a better way to communicate and that is wonderful because making the world more accommodating for disabled persons is a very important endeavor.

  • Not worth $5 and definitely not $50
    by Awesommeeee👍 on 2020-12-27 at 11:59 AM

    I have tried this app over and over and still it’s not anywhere near what they claim. I have an iphone SE and unfortunately I let the free trial run out before this app renewed for $50 and I couldn’t be more unhappy with it. I honestly cannot use it for more than a few minutes because it simply does not caption speech as touted. I contacted support and their only advice was to try it with an external mic. I read lips 100% and not sure that I can always plug in a separate mic for conversation. Spend your money on Otter which is awesome!!!!!

  • Doesn’t help me
    by Tamani4259 on 2020-12-26 at 5:23 PM

    I have tried at least three apps like this. This one I wouldn’t even consider paying for. I am glad so many people get help with it but I don’t get the same result.

  • Don’t waste your time or money
    by RJNielsen on 2020-12-16 at 5:54 PM

    This has never worked for me. I’m in IT and support iPhones and iPads! LiveTranscribe keeps crashing with various errors on iOS 13.7. kFAssistantError Domain Error 1700, etc. Get Ava instead, as it’s reliable and free.

  • Won’t work with TV
    by Cmmmmmc on 2020-12-13 at 2:32 PM

    Doesn’t work and they make canceling the subscription difficult so you end up getting charged $54. Feels like a rip off

  • Awful
    by Shefitza on 2020-12-10 at 2:23 PM

    The translation from English to Romanian is terrible. Plus when you speak English it doesn’t even say the right thing you’re saying. Deleting it.

    by Orogard on 2020-12-09 at 4:15 PM

    Wonderful app. I use to record voice mail messages on my answering machine. Also have greatly enhanced my conversations with customers. I am 90 percent deaf. This App is what has been needed. If people try it they will succeed in hearing thru visual. I will promote this App strongly. I am 80 years old and simple to use. Terry W Bass Helena, Montana

  • Absolutely awful
    by LibraRising on 2020-11-28 at 6:02 AM

    I turned up the volume up of my laptop and placed my phone right by the speaker. Not only did it mess up every single word of a college-level academic video, it included profanity. This is not equal access by any stretch of the imagination.

  • I love this Live Transcribe app!!
    by Liz B T on 2020-11-25 at 11:47 PM

    I've been searching for a way to transcribe voice into written text for my 92-year-old, deaf mother. I just found Live Transcribe and downloaded the App to my Iphone. I have a 1-week free trial period before it renews to a 1-year subsctiption for $49.99, which I feel is very reasonable. Mom and I tried it and are elated that it works so well! I am going to tell EVERYONE about this app--especially her doctors and dentists!! My sister's going to put it on her Ipad. We're SO excited, you'd think it was Christmas!! Thank you for making our lives so much easier!!

  • Tell me ahead of time it’s a subscription service
    by origionalnicknamesarestupid on 2020-11-24 at 4:25 PM

    They only have a one week free trial version, then after that you need to pay. It would have been nice if it said that somewhere before I downloaded the app

  • Mike Dereskewicz
    by 49.95 gone on 2020-11-24 at 11:32 AM

    I am severely hearing impaired. Tried LT trial Tried a month subscription. Went to a year’s for 49.99. All the time believing I would get better. But I haven’t. LT has not. After use in a closed space with only one speaker’s voice input at a time. Whew! Not even close. Huge waste of money. Can’t get my money back. “You will have full access until your subscription ends...’ That’s Aug 2021. So I have used the product for ONE month. For $49.95. Not nice. Must have been in the fine print. My review above was about four months ago. I reinstalled this app about a week ago. It’s the same. It only works in a closed environment And even then it’s far from good accuracy. Yes masks are a problem but I believe it’s not terribly significant. So I have severe hearing loss I qualify now for a cochlear implant. Surgery will be in three weeks. I hope LT will help me learn to hear with my new a closed environment at least. That will help.

  • Not for me
    by rengland77 on 2020-11-16 at 12:41 AM

    I was a subscriber for several months, hoping the app would approve, but it never worked out for me. At Dr offices, or grocery stores, it never made sense of what people said. Background noise? Accents? Who knows what the problem was.... Google Live Transcribe was more accurate for me. It was able to transcribe some live streaming videos for me, and I LOVE that you can flip the words upside down (keep the phone up mic closer to the speaker). Maybe I’ll give this another shot later down the road.

  • Inconsistent
    by Winter Jedi on 2020-11-05 at 4:00 PM

    It doesn’t work well if there is not much bass from the speaker’s voice. Missed too many words. Disappointing.

  • Bs. Why do we have to pay?!
    by Sltirey on 2020-11-04 at 5:17 PM


  • Problem fixed
    by phone call 2020 on 2020-10-29 at 3:01 PM

    Just coming back to update my review but it won’t let me edit. Great customer service and helped with fixing the issue of the mic not recognizing. I’m able to use my Phonak Roger Pen with this device and that’s amazing! Especially during this time where everyone is wearing masks.

  • Does not work.
    by Lkuosbgtfjebwustvrvdkuc on 2020-10-25 at 12:54 AM

    It keeps telling me that it can’t set up the microphone. Well, voice to text works in messaging, so the microphone works just fine. At least there is a free trial that I can cancel so I won’t get charged for this useless app. Maybe someday Apple will catch up to Android and have a free live transcribe option that works.

  • The deaf can 👂
    by Tobright on 2020-09-13 at 10:44 PM

    Hello I’ve only been using the app for a few days so far so good. I use if it for the first time at a doctors appointment, and was able to read what my doctor was saying. Which was great being that I am completely deaf. Please continue to improve this app it’s a blessing for the deaf world. My doctor also added the app to use for her HOH patients. 🤘🏾👍

  • 99% there! Missing just one thing...
    by GentleGiardiasis on 2020-09-10 at 2:57 AM

    As a medical professional looking for dictation software, this does a very good job! It understands a vast majority of medical jargon and I think this will really help me with charting. The only thing that would make this app absolutely perfect is if there was a way you could utilize its dictation capabilities within other apps. For example, is there any way to make a floating mic icon that you could tap that would allow you to dictate into any text box? Or maybe make an installable keyboard with dictation capabilities? Otherwise the only workaround for that at the moment is you can easily copy and paste the dictated text into your software of choice. It works, but it just adds an unnecessary step and I would love it if we could dictate into other apps directly.

  • Terribly disappointed
    by I Want to be Kind on 2020-09-01 at 2:00 AM

    I need this so badly for church and doctor appointments as well as conversation. Terrible. I wish I could post a screenshot I took of a conversation at my ENT’s office today. Gobbledygook - words that made no sense. I can’t even describe how bad it is. I’m in the process of trying to get a refund. I made the mistake of paying for a year based on the glowing reviews.

  • Unable to access trial
    by wudex on 2020-08-25 at 8:28 PM

    Why is this app free for android and you charge for iOS? I’m trying to put an app on my iPhone but it I can’t get to the trial it says I used my trial and I have not even tried it yet. I don’t want to pay for something that it’s not gonna work. I’ve tried many others that you’re not working on my iPhone .who do I contact about that very frustrated

  • Live transcribe is fantastic!
    by cioce13 on 2020-08-11 at 5:27 PM

    My mom is in a nursing home. She has hearing aids but never uses them. Visits with her were extremely frustrating. Even when I yelled she didn’t hear much of what I said. Now my 97 year old mom enjoys being able to hear about her new great granddaughter and what is new with the rest of the family. We only get a one-half hour outdoor visit with her per week, so this app is invaluable to me.

  • Upset
    by Redrobin72 on 2020-08-04 at 8:37 PM

    I tried this for a free trial and then I didn’t like it and they charged me $57 and didn’t get to use it but once. It’s not what I was looking for. Not a good time to charge people when this Covid crap going on and people losing jobs.

  • They Charge For Entire Year! Not Monthly!
    by SophiaViola on 2020-07-26 at 1:28 AM

    Deceiving and not ok. $50. Not worth.

  • Live transcribe
    by Jabpotr on 2020-07-24 at 2:22 PM

    I’m an audiologist. This app has been a life saver as far as communicating with my deaf and hard of hearing patients while wearing a mask. I do wish I could use it in landscape rather than portrait view, but it’s still excellent.

  • Do not get if you are Deafblind and require braille
    by The Pawpower Pack on 2020-07-21 at 9:04 PM

    This is not accessible with voiceover and braille displays for Deafblind people. Also, if you want to write to the company-- which I tried to do, you must fill out a CAPTCHA, either audio or visual, and being Deafblind, I can do neither, so this is the only way I can communicate with the dev. I find it frustrating that the maker of an app for accessibility puts their contact form behind an inaccessible captcha. There are better ways of weeding out spam. Do not download this app if yAre deafblind and require braille. It will freeze up your display and you will have to exit the app to regain functionality.

  • Accuracy issues
    by real_dexbot on 2020-07-20 at 3:22 AM

    I use this app on iOS and the eponymous but unaffiliated Google app on Android. The Google one requires an internet connection and has some privacy concerns but is smoother and more accurate overall. This one works offline (major pro!) but isn’t as smooth or accurate. I’m gonna chalk that up to the fact that this app uses the Siri dictation engine and Siri isn’t as good at understanding southerners as Google is. I’m in the process of trying out a few other apps to speak with people who are deaf or hard of hearing while wearing a mask, but this app looks like it’ll be my go-to on iOS.

  • Should be free for the deaf community
    by 1nikk1 on 2020-07-20 at 2:08 AM

    This is literally a rip off of googles free app and even though it works good it should be free. At least have it be a one time purchase and not a monthly subscription. Making it a subscription based app means you are making money off that backs of the deaf community for something they have no choice in.

  • Hearing app
    by #kids15 on 2020-07-19 at 4:39 PM

    I am almost deaf and have hearing aids that don’t work that good, especially when in a group. This is an absolute life savior for me. I love it. Thank you so much.

  • Type Screen
    by idunalane on 2020-07-18 at 11:38 PM

    Good app, with great potential, but I don’t quite get the “Type Screen” function. Why cannot I use a full screen when I’m typing? It only gives me half or a quarter of the screen. Also, when you are in the “Live Transcribe” mode, it adds a full stop after each sentence automatically. This should be optional, just like adding line breaks.
