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, ultra-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 — Nagish will get them right!
• Ultra-accurate captions, even when speakers have deep accents.
• Works with Interactive Voice Response Systems (IVRS). Use
the keyboard or your own voice to speak.
• Supports hearing aids and cochlear implants
• End-to-end secured. Only you have access to your calls.

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.
  • Update Zoom. Make sure to upgrade to the latest version of Zoom.
  • 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, Noon, 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.
