Live Transcribe

Hearing impaired people have the possibility to record speech via the microphone on the Samsung device and play it back as text.

After the automatic transcription from voice to text, the keyboard can also be used to give an answer.

On the Samsung device, there are some settings available to personalize the transcription, such as changing the text size, microphone or language.

Once the transcription has been activated on the Samsung device, a help icon is located on the right side of the navigation bar to start or stop the function.

Mono audio

With headphones, the sound is usually reproduced in stereo. This means that the sound is reproduced on two different audio channels, with each audio track being heard on one auricle at a time, giving a complete picture only in our ears.

For example, if we share headphones or are deaf in one ear, the Samsung device can switch from stereo to mono audio, and mono audio means that only one audio channel is played, so the output is the same in each ear.

Subtitles

On the Samsung device, subtitles can also be displayed during video playback, although we can use Samsung subtitles or Google subtitles, although there is little difference in their function.
