Shell-be-heard / Media player

Shell-be-heard
Shell-be-heard

Shell-be-heard is a music player which listens to and understands the thoughts of deaf/hard-of-hearing individuals. By respecting and honest attitude, we can make these people be understood.
We must communicate with deaf/hard-of-hearing individuals through complicated sign language, but most crowds can’t use sign language and cause lots of misunderstanding.The media player scan deaf/hard-of-hearing individuals signal gesture by face and gesture identifying technology. The captured motion will be transformed to electron signals which are displayed through voices or graphics to make these people communicate with crowds fluently.
