For over 120 million people who're deaf or hard-of-hearing, daily communication is a huge struggle. Inspired by co-founder Jari’s parents being deaf, SpeakSee is developing a multi-microphone system which transcribes speech to text on a web application in different colors for each person.

This way the user can be included in any conversation at all times!

Presently available speech recognition solutions don’t work well for group conversations. At SpeakSee, we are revolutionizing the transcription industry and, with our microphone technology and machine learning algorithms, solve this problem by making speech recognition useful in all environments independent of the number of participants in the conversation.

Are you motivated to have an actual positive social impact with your development (and design) expertise, changing the lives for the better of potentially millions of people?

Are you attracted by the realism of our team to solve a very urgent need for a niche group before aiming at fully disrupting the wider transcription market with our technology?

Do you get excited by the thought of working with a results-oriented, hands-on team to get SpeakSee in the hands of thousands of people this and next year? Leave a message! Let's talk!
