iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2021

"Little Ear" is an electronic product designed for speech rehabilitation training of hearing-impaired children based on image recognition and speech recognition technology. Oral learning is extended from the small classroom environment to the larger life environment, so that hearing-impaired children can be immersed in a rich and meaningful real environment. Oral learning is achieved with the assistance of visual or other sensory clues (such as touch, smell, etc.) and residual hearing. It turns the child's curiosity into motivation to learn spoken language, letting the child learn from life.
