myLINGO is a smartphone app that enables non-English speaking audiences to enjoy mainstream U.S. movies currently in theaters. Our app allows users to listen to a studio-quality recorded audio track of the film, in their own language. myLINGO plays the recording via earphones, in real time, while users are inside the movie theater. The first language on myLINGO is Spanish, available with select movies.
Right now the Spanish audio is the first available language for download on myLINGO with select US movies, so myLINGO is for Spanish speakers in the United States. The overall vision for myLINGO is to shatter communication barriers all over the world, providing a solution to millions of non-native English speakers living in the U.S. who might not fully understand the language, for those outside the country who want to watch a movie in its original language, and even for those who are deaf or hard of hearing. We are working hard to soon support several languages beyond Spanish, and in several countries around the world.
When the Hollywood studios make a movie, they produce 'alternate language' soundtracks of the entire film (dialogue + music + effects) to be released in other countries, and later to DVD. These are the audio tracks available for download on myLINGO. myLINGO only supports top quality audio for movies produced by the best of the best. Right now, there is only the Spanish language audio available for download. We're working on adding more languages ASAP.
