---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of cell phone technology which converts voice input to text and text input to voice allowing individuals with hearing impairment and/or deafness to communicate by cell phone. The Visual Sound is a mobile phone for the hearing impaired that converts voice input to text and text input to voice. The design features two handy pillars that scroll sideways to expose the roll-out display. To communicate, the individual feeds in the text using the touch-screen display, which then gets converted to voice simulation for the person on the other end of the phone and vice versa. The only limitation may be the time it takes to input text and the conversion back into sound. TITLE: Deaf Phone? WEBSITE: Yanko Design. REF: http://www.yankodesign.com/2010/01/25/deaf-phone.
