Spuble is an award winning project that aims to bring people who have a hearing impediment back into the conversation by creating real life speech bubbles. The app integrates Nuance's cloud based speech to text technology, via the Internet, in order to turn spoken words into text. 

The app was originally meant to be used by people who are not tech savvy, so get the user experience right, was one of the biggest challenges. We spent 8 months testing different functionality and interfaces before we reached a version that could be shipped.

As an example of the user experience process, we tested several fonts till we finally decided to use Museo for spuble, which had the right blend of quirkiness and readability.
