Mobile Phone for Deaf
Guide: Prof. G.G. Ray
Telephone is a technology which is developed for the hearing people. The people who are deaf and mute are completely ignored by the technology developers and the stakeholders.
But over the last few years, mobile phone is hugely adopted by the deaf and mute users for text messaging. Even in India the SMS (Short Messaging Ser¬vice) is becoming popular among the deaf and mute users because it is the only way of communication available for them.
The aim of this project was to conceptualise the mobile phone which will solve communication problem and will create an interface which will give a feel of communication. The project went through the understanding the basic needs of deaf and mute users through user studies, study of existing technologies, concept gen¬erations and prototype development.
