Development of the Hearing Communication System in an Individual and the Classroom
Sign language interpretation and PC captioning are used as means of assisting hearing impaired people to get information. A noise in classroom is bigger than expected, so it became a problem for hearing impairments who need concentrate listen. And children and students can’t listen teachers speech is easy to imagine which become a factor of interfere. In classrooms, speech is infrequently transmitted to a child without interference from background noise. Background noise refers to any undesired auditory stimuli that interferes with what a child wants, or needs, to hear and understand. Therefore, a product are sold which use FM wireless transmission. We have developed a supporting system of nursing care for the hearing disabled people, using a tablet PC. This proposed system devices a system which the LAN invented in the school. And it also use speech transmission on wireless LAN then they consider to use a smartphone and mobile games device. In the system, we choose a interface of GUI which is a few operation for beginner. Results of monosyllabic intelligibility test calculate 86% average. We can judge the system is utility.
