Abstract

This paper describes a project to create a novel design of a communication tool for individuals with hearing disabilities and speech disorders. It provides a detailed analysis of the engineering and scientific aspects of the system, and the fundamentals taken into account for social inclusion of such individuals. It also describes a comprehensive study of present and future applications of this technology to provide an enhanced tool to individuals to further improve their communication skills. Morse code is the base over which this new technology is proposed, which has gathered feedback from specialists and individuals with disabilities, to develop in a near future as a newer communication tool solution, with a robust functionality and an ergonomic design.
