App that helps the deaf population.

Use instructions: 1. Applestore application is installed on iPhone device 2. Phone owner has chosen to have active phone calls to be translated via speech to text on the iPhone device screen so that they are able to read what the voice on the other line is saying. 3. The same application works in face-to-face conversations to help translate between a deaf person and someone who may not know how to communicate effectively with a deaf person. How math and/or science is used: • Speech to text technology would be utilized • Speech to text would need to be integrated into phone calls Description: Do you know someone who is deaf and has a hard time understanding what people are saying? Well all that can change with the (VisualSpeak) application for iPhone! How does it work? • If you’re in a room having a conversation with a deaf person, and you don’t know sign language, the VisualSpeak app can change all that! You turn on your app and the deaf person can read what you are saying instead of having to go through the trouble of keeping up with reading lips. • Or lets say you call someone who is deaf, to make it a lot easier for them they can turn on their app and read everything the person on the other end is saying! An invention like this can help people all across the world! This invention is very important to me as I know of people personally who are affected by this disability. I know the smaller things in life will be appreciated by those who are not

How Math & Science Can Help Power My Idea

How math and/or science is used: • Speech to text technology would be utilized • Speech to text would need to be integrated into phone calls Working with the cell phone companies with their previous experience in technolgy to integrate this device in helping the deaf population.
