A Living List of Apps for Children and Adults with Hearing Loss

2020 Update

Melissa Tumblin, founder of Ear Community and Oticon Medical Ambassador, originally shared this great list of mobile apps for individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing. We are resharing it with an update that includes apps for Android™ users as well as the original spreadsheet for iPhone┬« apps.

We thank audiologist Tina Childress, who is also hard of hearing, for compiling the original spreadsheet. Thanks also goes out to Kevin Martin, editor at Joy of Android, for sharing the article on Android apps.

iPhone apps for the hard of hearing

To view the spreadsheet, click below. Here are a few pointers to help you navigate through this available information:

  • Start on the “Welcome” tab to understand how the apps are chosen and categorized
  • Click through each tab of the spreadsheet to see the list of apps for that category
  • To find out more about an app, click on the cell with the app’s hyperlink. You’ll then have the option to “go to link;” click the link
  • Clicking the link will take you to the application’s information page on iTunes.com. Here, you can see screenshots of the app, read more about it and even view in iTunes where you can download the application. You can also search for the app in the App Store and download it directly to your phone
