Project Description

Talk2Me is a Smartphone app designed to bridge face-to-face communication gap between Deaf/Hard of Hearing and hearing people. Talk2Me provides a specific feature—Rotating for Showing Messages—to conduct physical interaction with nonverbal messages such eye contact and facial expressions into communication when people are using it. Because physical interaction with nonverbal messages is one of the most significant parts of face-to-face communication what is excluded from computer-mediated communication (CMC). In addition, Talk2Me provides various ways of inputting messages for facilitating communication process as well as a specific mode for the elderly because high percentages of Deaf/Hard of Hearing are older people.
