Communicaid system has been designed to facilitate a communication between deaf or hearing impaired people and hearing people. One of our senses that enable us to interact with our environment and other people would be our ears, however for hearing impaired people, they don’t have all the benefits from hearing the sound. It makes them really hard to engage with others. The goal of this project is to design a device which would make communication easier for hearing impaired people in the world full of amazing sounds. This system has been designed specifically for people who were born deaf and did not acquire language early or were born hearing impaired, but lost it in early childhood.
Communicaid system consists of Visual Sound Station, Visual Sound Glasses, and Mobile Communicator which three of them are portable devices for different situations. Visual Sound Station captures sounds from the environment to alert hearing impaired people visually through its lights and pictograms. The glasses work similarly to Visual Sound Station but this one is a wearable device, perfect to use while the user is having outdoor activities. The Mobile Communicator is a handheld communication device that can be used to communicate with other people efficiently and conveniently.
