Communication Made Easy; Sign Language Now Audible

What would you do if a hearing-impaired person spoke to you in sign language? There are many attempts to translate spoken language into sign language or text message to convey information to a hearing-impaired person but what about the opposite direction? The hearing world is making efforts to communicate with hearing-impaired people, but the hearing world is less adept at understanding what the hearing-impaired person is saying back. In order to correct this one-way street, we will present a system where both the hearing and the hearing-impaired person can communicate in their own language.
