mates / The assistance of communicatin


As a data which the Korea Ministry of Health and Welfare researched, the students in special schools are not classified into each group that is comprised of the people who have same disorder so that communicating with friends having different problem has been quite difficult for them even trying.
First, we consider three kinds of handicapped person as a group which can communicate at least; visually handicapped, hearing impairments and impediments. We propose new means that they can communicate with everyone. The system, we call "I'm" which is an abbreviation for intermediator, guides emotional dialogue with the six sense.
