Opt is a hearing assistive device that addresses the frustration and isolation experienced by individuals with hearing difficulties in social environments. Its real-time 60-second speech rewinding function enables users to easily catch up on missed conversations, with the text sent to their mobile phones for convenient viewing. Utilising AI speech-to-text transcription and universal design principles, Opt is accessible to all and can benefit a wide range of users, including those without hearing difficulties. Opt aims to normalise the use of assistive technology and break down stigmas associated with hearing loss, creating a more inclusive environment where individuals with hearing difficulties feel empowered to engage in social situations with confidence.
