More About Ava:
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.
Interested?
Please take a moment to fill out a few questions we have and make sure you convey why you think you'd make a good fit for this position.
Many thanks!
The Ava Team
