Abstract

People with hard of hearing and the deaf often face difficulties to recognize things happening in their surroundings. Imagine you cannot hear the sound, because you are with hard of hearing or using iPod with earphones, you would not able to recognize the car coming behind of you. It may cause a fatal collision. The purpose of this study is to develop the device mostly for the deaf or hard of hearing people, for persons temporarily with hard of hearing besides. The device can be applied to multi modal accessibility, which transforms the sound information to the visual information. It also provides the direction to the sound source using a light. The device is compact in an attempt to be used in everyday life.
