At Ava, we want to build a totally accessible world for deaf & hard-of-hearing people, empowered by great voice recognition technologies.
Imagine if you could help 450 millions of people communicate much better with the rest of the world. Imagine the smiles on their faces when they realize that the world will now be a bit more open for them. We celebrate all the misfits who have unique ideas and deep empathy. The ampersand-shaped pegs not at their place in a hierarchical society.
If you know that you want to use some of your unicorn-level talents (e.g. rare, amazing, almost magical skills) to help our mission, just say hi. We're all eyes & ears!

We want to radically improve how we humans communicate with each other. Our first step is to empower 450M deaf and hard-of-hearing people to a fully accessible world.
Every day, millions of people are excluded from conversations because they cannot hear well what others say. Our CEO Thibault grew up in a Deaf family and saw firsthand how the world was not accessible for them. Together with our CTO Skinner — deaf since age 2 — Thibault co-founded Ava to make live captioning of conversations as easy as turning on captions on TV.
Our small but fast-growing team has reinvented AI-based speech recognition technology to be in service of people who need it the most. We dream of a 24/7 accessible world, without any communication barrier.
In this pursuit, we're seeing how much communication skills are critical, yet very far from ideal, to unleash our collective potential. This is for us the last barrier to be lifted.
Our belief is that well-designed technology can help everyone communicate and connect better — much more effectively and authentically — so humanity can achieve the greatest things together.
We want to make the seemingly impossible equation of communication 1 + 1 = 3, work every time. In other words, make 1 & 1 = 3 a reality.
