18 Key Benefits and Features of Nagish

It’s no secret that artificial intelligence (AI) is completely changing how we communicate with the world. Phone calls are no exception. Thanks to Nagish and advancements in artificial intelligence, accessible, easy communication is now available to everyone.

What is Nagish?

Nagish is an app designed to empower individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing to engage in effortless conversations. 

Through the power of AI, Nagish provides fast and accurate real-time captions for phone calls, seamlessly converting speech to text and text to speech. 

With Nagish, people who are deaf or hard of hearing and those recently experiencing hearing loss can communicate using their existing phone numbers in complete privacy without needing interpreters, stenographers, or captioning assistants. And the best part? Nagish is completely free! 

How Does Nagish Work?

Nagish works like a regular phone call, with the only difference being that if you’re using the app you can type and read instead of speak and hear. 

While typing, the person on the other side of the call will hear a typing sound, indicating that they should wait for your response. When communicating using the keyboard, Nagish will relay what you type into natural-sounding speech. You can also use your voice if you prefer speaking over typing. 

You can call anyone, and anyone can call you. Plus, the person on the other end doesn’t need the app installed for you to receive calls via Nagish. 

Even if you’re a slow typer Nagish facilitates the flow of your conversations using features such as customizable quick responses and a personal dictionary with your most used words or phrases.

When someone calls you, or when you call someone using Nagish, you can choose if you want the other side to hear a brief message at the beginning of the call. If so, the hearing side will hear a default message shortly after we connect your call.

The default message is: I'm using text to communicate. Please be patient.

11. Calls with Automated Systems: Whenever you are asked to "enter" or "press" a number during an automated phone call, such as those operated by airlines, banks, credit card companies, and telecom providers, you can simply use the "Numbers" option rather than the keyboard located on the right side of your call controllers. 

12. Transcribe Your Voicemails: The app enhances your communication experience by transcribing your voicemails. Instead of struggling to understand unclear or missed messages, you can read the transcriptions at your convenience. Say goodbye to the frustration of deciphering voicemails!
