Olivier, entrepreneur, deaf

Born in Los Angeles, California, he lost his hearing at age 2. When Olivier arrived in France after his studies at UC Berkeley, he was taken aback by the lack of accessibility for hard-of-hearing people. With the advent of Siri in 2011 he realized that if every smartphone could automatically caption conversations, he could call like everyone else.

That's how Rogervoice came about! Our mission? Break down barriers to communication every day.🚀

Customer Support is for me putting a smile on every customer’s face. Being able to make a difference, to help connect a call – how Rogervoice connects people, feelings and much more. For all these reasons and many more – I love to be a part of Rogervoice. And in my own small world I am a mom of two and a hobby pastry chef.

Forza Rogervoice!

Anne Dumesnil

French sign language Interpreter

Sign language interpreter since 2007. At that time, our deaf trainers dreamed of having a telephone relay service "like in the United States" to order a pizza, call a doctor, a family member... Rogervoice has done just that! And here I am, delighted to be a seasoned remote member of the Roger team.

Theodora Ehanno

I then moved to the Hautes-Alpes. Since 2019, flying over France on the wings of Rogervoice has set me on a constant journey.

Olympe

Head of happiness

I'm mostly around to be played with all day. Always happy to put my favourite toy on my colleagues' lap for them to throw it at me. My favorite moment comes around noon, when my colleagues, a bit clumsily I must say, deliberately drop foodies on the floor, as long as Xavier doesn't notice it.
