FFCDH: Solution to Enable Face-to-Face Conversation between Deaf and Hearing People

Othmar Othmar Mwambe, Shelena Soosay Nathan, Toan Nguyen-Duc, Eiji Kamioka
2018 Journal of Computer and Communications  
Moreover, FFCDH records the speech of the hearing and converts it into signs for the deaf. It also provides deaf with an option to adjust volume of their speech by displaying volume of their voice.  ...  One of the reasons is that the hearings parents have neither enough time nor support to learn sign language to communicate and support their children.  ...  The number of deaf and hard of hearing people, which has increased to over five percent of the global population [10] , and the prevalence of deaf children who were born to hearing parents, is higher  ...
