Technology to help deaf people
Unless I am missing something. as a severely deaf person I feel that my eyesight is underused. With speech recognition it would be easy for me to read what people are saying on a mobile phone or tablet. Better still by using a development of Google Glass - I would prefer to look at someone while they are speaking. But despite this obvious application there seems to be little progress in this area. I have used a bluetooth microphone to dictate to an iPad even at a distance. Severely deaf students could use this in lectures and have a complete transcription of what is being said
