PHONE for Mute People

Postby lupgain » Wed Jan 28, 2009 11:43 pm

I would appreciate if we can connect Alphanumeric keypad with speaker to the phone so that a mute person can hear and type a text to talk, this text will be then voice synthesized and then passed over to the speaker of the person on other side.

Reward: name the product as Write-A-Loud (WAL)

This device already exists. It's called TDD (telecommunications device for the deaf).

Sorry -- the URL in the previous comment is defective. Just google TDD or TTY and you'll get all the information you need.
