This project involves the design and construction of a system to facilitate communication with the speech impaired, and in particular with those who can neither hear nor speak. A search should be made to determine the kinds of systems that are currently used to facilitate communication with the speech impaired. Also, some of the components listed below are commercially available, and they should be investigated for possible combination into a complete system. It is anticipated that at least several of the components, if not the complete system, can be prototyped this year.
The components that provide input to the speech impaired person are as follows:
The components that provide output from the speech impaired person are as follows:
