Nagish (which means ’Accessible’ in Hebrew) makes phone calls more accessible.

Nagish is a mobile app available for iOS and Android devices. It looks and feels just like your existing phone. The only difference is that with Nagish you can choose to read your calls or hear them while seeing captions on your screen. Nagish empowers you to use your own voice or your device’s keyboard to speak.

The app is 100% private, over 90% accurate and has no latency.

Some key features include:

  • Keep your existing phone number to place and receive captioned calls.
  • Add words (such as names) to a personal dictionary — we will never get them wrong.
  • Automatically adapting our algorithms depending on the context of your call.
  • Works with Interactive Voice Response Systems (IVRS).
  • Use the keyboard, or your own voice to speak.
  • Turn up the volume using your device’s loudspeaker.
  • End-to-end encrypted. Only you have access to your calls.

Nagish is free, and is available for download here.

Tune in to this product showcase to learn how you can use Nagish to make your calls more accessible, and have a Q&A session with the company’s founder and CEO.

Helpful Hints and Tutorials

    • Zoom concerns have been addressed and procedures will be modified as Zoom continues to update their software. The main security issue was with open meetings. When you register, it creates a unique link for a password protected session.
    • Use a computer. If possible, attend the meeting on a computer rather than via a smart phone or iPad. This will give you the best layout to view the captions as well as other meeting features.
  • Captions. HLAA Webinars are open or closed captioned. Subtitles will be visible at the bottom of the meeting zoom screen.
  • Check your time zone. This meeting will take place live at 2 p.m. ET, 1 p.m. CT, 12 p.m. MT and 11 a.m. PT. If you are in a different time zone, please adjust the time so you do not miss the meeting.
