Visual Sound

Pratt Institute student Suhyun Kim has come up with a device that converst voice to text and vice versa. Visual Sound is a mobile phone for the deaf designed with pillars that scroll sideways to expose the roll-out display. The scroll-like device has a touchscreen for text to be typed in, which then gets converted to voice for the other person on the line, whose audio then turns into text for the deaf user of the phone to read. She is now working on finding someone to manufacture it.
