The voice of the heart / bracelets

The voice of the heart
The voice of the heart

Deaf people can't speak the same "language" as we do because they can't hear it. So whether it's thinking or communicating, the "voice" in their minds is the movement of the hand, and when they want to express themselves, it's only in sign language. The world of the deaf and mute is closed, and they know and understand that they are special people, but they also desire to socialize normally. This sign language interprets bracelets to speak for deaf and mute people. When they make sign language movements, the bracelet recognizes the hand movements and reads the meaning of the phone in real time.
