Communication for Deaf-Blind


The University of Arts Berlin developed a prototype Lorm glove to increase communication access for Deaf-blind people.   A mobile Lorm glove allows Deaf-blind people to transmit text messages and to receive them.

A speaker wearing a Mobile Lorm Glove can stroke the letters into the glove, and the letters are transmitted into text on the speaker’s cell phone.  If the listener wears on of the Lorm gloves, it will translate the text into sensations received by the person listening at the other end of the conversation.
