I can show new people the way I like certain things to be

“I like my hair to be cut in a certain way but don’t always have the same hairdresser. With Hear Me Now, I can show images of my hair so the hairdresser understands what I want. It helps to put my mind at ease.”

A red toothbrush

Sometimes I struggle to get my point across

“I often get nervous when I visit the dentist, and it’s difficult for me to explain things correctly. With Hear Me Now I can record a quick video beforehand so that my dentist knows about any potential issues, or that I’m happy.”
