In an academic or business environment iCommunicator performs as an unparalleled communication tool. Using the finest Speech Recognition technology available, iCommunicator converts the spoken word into text, instantly translating it into Sign-Language or Computer-Generated Voice, providing access to acoustic information in real-time.
The user can then reply using the computer’s keyboard, providing text that can be read or allow iCommunicator to speak for them with the built-in Computer-Generated Voice.
Concern about the literacy levels of persons who are deaf and hard of hearing was the inspiration for development of this breakthrough technology. The iCommunicator delivers American Sign Language (ASL) signs in English word order (subject+verb+object) to improve the association between spoken, written, and signed words, promoting better literacy levels than traditional ASL.
In addition, the built-in Dictionary and Thesaurus allow the user to obtain definitions or perform internet searches to gather more information on words and phrases.
iCommunicator is a powerful learning and rehabilitative tool. By taking spoken or written words and presenting them to the user in a variety of different formats, iCommunicator provides rehabilitative benefits for a number of potential users:
• Visual learners learn best by seeing information; the iCommunicator provides a
visual display of spoken words.
• Individuals with speech disorders can use the iCommunicator’s voice output to
learn the proper pronunciation of words.
• When developing readers struggle with pronunciation, iCommunicator’s voice
output helps to learn the word.
• The iCommunicator helps individuals with hearing assistive devices make sense
of the sounds that they are hearing.
