Tactile Aids and Directional Microphones

Award Year / Program / Phase:
1994 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$500,000.00
Agency:
HHS
Principal Investigator:
David Franklin
Abstract:
It is clear that the utility of tactile aids degrades even more rapidly in the presence of noise than is the case for hearing aids. This is particularly apparent in the integration of visual and tactile cues as for example in speechreading. One reason may be is because many of the cues derived from… More

Development and Evaluation of a Tactilator System

Award Year / Program / Phase:

Development and Evaluation of a Tactilator System

Award Year / Program / Phase:
1995 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$750,000.00
Agency:
HHS
Principal Investigator:
David Franklin
Abstract:
Tactiling is the name given to a method of tactually supplementing speechreading. According to this method a deaf speechreader places his hand on a talker's shoulder with his fingers lightly against the neck; thus, the talker will obtain clues relating to voicing and dynamic speech intensity. The… More
