SoundWatch | Android app

SoundWatch, an Android app that provides glanceable, always-available sound feedback on smartwatches for d/Deaf and hard-of-hearing users. Created by a diverse team at University of Washington and led by a hard-of-hearing innovator who wanted to build for his community, SoundWatch uses machine learning to alert its users to important sounds occurring in their environment. With everything from critical fire alarms to speech alerts, users know they can rely on SoundWatch to make their environment more accessible. In the spirit of innovation and the spread of knowledge, SmartWatch is freely available and open-sourced for anyone wanting to learn more and contribute to its development.
