visual communications and people with hearing loss
Visual Communications technology has the potential to
greatly increase communications access for people with hearing loss. The
field is not yet well defined, and applications lag the potential. We
hope that this technology will fulfill its promise.
August 2007 - Checking out Camfrog
2001 - It looks like personal computers are just on the verge of having
enough capability to do a decent job of pretty easily providing visual
communications. I expect to see several applications released in the
near future. Here's one called SignTel.
heard of a Visual Intercom? This is the kind of technology that can
overcome problems in airports, amusement parks, schools, or anyplace
where an audio intercom is used. All it requires is to duplicate the
audio message on the Visual Intercom.
2000 - Those of you who sign might be interested in the technology
that allows people to communicate in sign over a standard telephone line
using home computers. HITEC has just announced their Worldview TCS system
and teleASL, which does exactly that.
