Silent messager is the Deaf Communication Assistant .It uses a soft touch OLED screen that can be folded into three-stages. The features include mobile phones that can use video to communicate directly with the deaf, opened when using voice-to-text technology, and sound source direction for design shows, and instantly become a class or a meeting to discuss what can be used for translation machines and a telephone. This helps to establish a bridge between people who can hear and the deaf. The device is flat like a notepad and it can also display sketches and notes in the same space, it’s easy to use and carry, and provides great communication.
