Voice to ASL & Morse Code
About 600,000 people in the United States, and 466 million people worldwide, are medically diagnosed as deaf or otherwise hard-of-hearing according to the World Health Organization (WHO). During COVID-19, many deaf/hard-of-hearing students are struggling to have their Individualized Education Plans (IEP) met in the wake of online learning. There are many solutions being developed to make it easier for able-bodied individuals to communicate with deaf individuals. However, few solutions exist to ease the barrier of communication for deaf people. So, I decided to develop a Voice to ASL and Morse Code robotic hand to decode verbal speech to visual signals and representations to bridge this communicative gap on the other end.
