Enable Talk – A New Way to Change Communication

Hey, look! It’s an idea for a program that makes communication between hearing and non-hearing people easier – AND it doesn’t go by the “fix it, it’s broken” model.

I really love that this is an adaptability concept geared toward bridging gaps in communication without either a) surgery or b) changing the person with a disability to make it easier for able bodied people.

Plus, one hopes if it’s easy and cheap to produce, it would be cheap for those who need it most to acquire. AND it could theoretically be an Iphone app!

Creating change by closing the communication gap is huge – and as someone who has always struggled with people in stores, I can only imagine how frustrating it must be when you can’t hear anything at all. I hope this project becomes a reality!
