Sorry to hear about your daughter’s arm. I have an iMac and bought a mic that plugged into it. When my voice is close to the mic, the captions from speech-to-text are a lot better.
Yes, my understanding is Olelo is for people with hearing loss. You can google it to confirm.

Is olelo only for people with hearing loss? I'm asking because my daughter recently broke her dominant arm and is having difficulty using her phone/computer for the next 10-12 weeks. I suggested speech to text for emails etc but she thinks it's unreliable. She uses Mac products.

I am testing olelo for iPhone captions.
Advantage: I like that it captions both sides of the conversation whereas InnoCaption only captions one side of the conversation (incoming).
Disadvantages: I am finding some downsides of olelo -- as it is fairly new.
1) It does not alert you when you have voicemail (they are working on that...) so you have to check your voicemail on a regular basis.
2) Also I have to do a "workaround" to share the conversation as they don't have that icon to share it. Olelo does provide a transcript showing both sides of the conversation. My workaround is to video record the transcript as I scroll down it--I use "Screenshot" on the Mac to do this.
But for the moment I am going to stick with olelo as its main advantage is so important to me....especially on important calls like financial, etc.
