Chapters on Technology & Deafness
The first chapter on technology and
Deafness provides full explanation about benefits and problems of cochlear implants. The second chapter describes a multimedia system that uses Brazilian Sign Language animated signs and digitized speech to allow telecommunication, face to face communication between Deaf and hearing, and communication by quadriplegic Deaf patients suffering from cerebral-palsy or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
