I am the developer of the Head Shadow iPhone app, an AirPods Pro hearing aid for people with single-sided deafness.
The app can use AirPods Pro or other earbuds to boost the hearing levels of people with general hearing loss, as well.
I am deaf in the right ear and developed the app with universal accessibility in mind.
The first release of the app, in January 2020, included VoiceOver and other key accessibility features for low vision and blind folks.
The latest version of the app (1.09), released today, is focused on accessibility improvements and bug fixes.
Head Shadow app works on iPhones 5s (original) to the latest, iOS versions 12.4 to 14.2.
The purchase price of the app is $5, but you can download and use it for a month, free of charge.
I need testers in the following categories to test the app for vision accessibility and hearing aid functionality:
1. VoiceOver, Larger Text Sizes, and general accessibility for low vision or blind users.
2. Same as category 1, but for people that own AirPods and may have hearing loss in both ears.
3. Same as category 1, but for people that own AirPods Pro and may have single-sided deafness.
Many thanks and keep safe,
