Kico is a system to create communal efforts by normal-hearing and hard-of-hearing people to engage in understandable conversation. It functions as agency understanding each person’s hearing difficulty.
Normal-hearing people are reminded to speak at proper volume, pitch and speed by haptic feedback by the system on behalf of hard-of-hearing people. They can learn the proper way to speak by visualization of voice elements.
Hard-of-hearing people train the system. A function to play back recent conversation enables them not only to listen back to what was said but also to mark difficult sounds, by which the system figures out each difficulty.
