Ava is building a more inclusive world
Ava is a start-up that empowers millions of deaf and hard of hearing people better communicate and connect with the people around them by providing them real-time transcription in their classroom lectures and work meetings.

Humans and Machines working together.
To deliver a perfect transcription of these conversations, Ava combines artificial intelligence (voice-to-text) and human intelligence (the Scribe team).
Scribe connects on their laptop at the meeting time and carefully listens to the live conversation an Ava user is having and quickly corrects any error made by the automated transcription: this makes 99% accurate captions possible.

You could join the Scribe team if you are all of these:
1) You are fluent in English and Spanish.
2) You type quickly and accurately on your keyboard in both English and Spanish. (Test how many wpm you type here:
2) You are savvy with technology and familiar using computers.
