Take the stress out of phone calls and never miss out on a conversation again with the V2T-10 TextHear voice to text converter.
Great for text based phone calls if you’re profoundly deaf, and if you have a hearing loss it’s perfect for filling in the bits you might have missed.
Please note: This product works with your landline telephone, and requires a smartphone or tablet with a voice to text app installed. It works best with the TextHear app, but othe apps may work. The app will work best using a Wi-Fi or 4G data internet connection.
There may be charges for using the TextHear app, so please check the pricing structure on your app store on your smartphone or tablet before buying this adaptor.
Put the joy back into phone calls with loved ones, and enjoy stress-free chats long into the night once more.
For people with a hearing loss, keeping up with phone calls can sometimes be a real challenge. If you find talking on the phone stressful, or if you’re tired of asking people to repeat themselves, this telephone adaptor can make a huge difference.
By transcribing your phone calls and converting the incoming voice into text, you’ll have a live feed of what’s being said. This can completely transform your phone conversations as the transcript fills in any blanks you might not have heard. So you can relax and enjoy the chit-chat rather than getting anxious about missing out on what people are saying.
Transcribing conversations for profoundly deaf people
There are a range of accessibility options available for profoundly deaf people, and the V2T-10 gives you another option for staying connected. You might already have a textphone or use the next-generation text-relay service, but this adaptor works with an existing corded telephone, and the TextHear app itself can also be used to transcribe face-to-face conversations too.
Everyone has a different, unique set of needs specific to their individual circumstances. So if you’re profoundly deaf, we recommend researching all the options available to you before deciding which ones are for you. The V2T-10 adaptor and TextHear app may be for you.
Please note: There may be charges associated with using the TextHear app. Please check the app store on your smartphone or tablet to check the charging structure before buying this product.
How does it work?
The V2T-10 is really easy to install, simply plug the adaptor in between your corded phone and the handset, and when you want to transcribe a call simply connect your tablet or smartphone with the TextHear app running. The adaptor simply sends the sound for the call into your smartphone, where the TextHear app uses speech-to-text technology to transcribe it for you.

V2T-10 adaptor features:
The V2T-10 speech to text adaptor is compatible with amplified telephones, but higher volumes can make the speech transcription less accurate. To address this, there is a ‘level’ dial on the adaptor which can be used to change the volume of the speech that’s sent to the TextHear app. This helps to improve accuracy, without affecting the volume of the speech which comes through from your telephone handset.
Please note: We can only guarantee that the V2T-10 adaptor will work when used with the TextHear app, but there are a variety of voice-to-text transcription apps available on the market and many of them may work as well. They may work with a varying degree of accuracy, and we cannot be held responsible for performance if you’re using a different app.
The TextHear app is available on iTunes (https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/texthear/id1246677907?mt=8) and Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.texthear.texthearpersonal&hl=en_GB).
