There are Fortran to C converters, however I am not sure whether they support the Fortran version WSJT-X is implemented with.

Fortran compiler is not part of the official Android NDK, but it seems as if the NDK could be compiled relatively easily to include gfortran.

Interestingly enough, modern browsers support WebAssembly WebAssembly. One may compile a C/C++ code into Web Assembly bytecode, which is then translated to native code by your browser and ran at the speed close to native. Web browsers support audio input / output, so it is technically feasible to recompile WSJT-X to run in the browser, although it would require quite a significant effort.
