TigerChat

Faces wearing masks

Right now, masks can make it hard for everyone to communicate.
That’s why we’ve created TigerChat™.

Purpose

TigerChat is a new app that’s been developed by the Center on Access Technology to help the RIT community eliminate communication barriers. As a member of the RIT community, you can use TigerChat to converse with another person or group using automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology and typing. You can watch the conversation as is happens rather than wait for someone to press the “send” button.

Get Started

TigerChat Icon

TigerChat is available to the RIT community using any device that has a web browser (works in Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and the latest version of Edge). Go to the web app or use the link on the RIT Mobile app and log in using your RIT account and password. Your conversation will start right away! Then invite others using a conversation code or QR code.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact us at tigerchat@rit.edu.
