(Pages: 11-14) Publication Date: February 1994
Every year the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory conducts a National Search competition designed to discover and stimulate work in technology to improve the lives of persons with disabilities. This article describes two award-winning submissions from the 1991 search. Both were designed for persons with speech, hearing and language difficulties. One is a portable device, TONETALKER, that helps people with hearing impairments communicate over the telephone, and the second is a multimedia educational program, READ-MY-LIPS, for hearing-impaired students.
