Summary

Designed to help people who are deaf to communicate more easily with people who do not know any sign language. The app generates a series of ‘flash cards’, on which the user can place messages. Any number of cards can be created and edited. Frequently-needed cards (such as, "Where is the lavatory?", or "Where is the nearest bus stop?") can be kept organised by category (for example, by ‘Eating’, or ‘Travel’). The user communicates by picking a card, and holding the phone’s screen where it can be seen.
