|Title||System for people with hearing impairment to solve their social integration|
The deaf have the right to live a fair life and do their tasks without any difficulty exactly like everyone else. There are 360 million people (328 million adults and 32 million children) worldwide who have disabling hearing loss (Over 5% of the world's population) (WHO, 2015). Disabling hearing loss refers to hearing loss greater than 40 decibels (dB) in the better hearing ear in adults and a hearing loss greater than 30 dB in the better hearing ear in children(WHO, 2015). The majority of people with disabling hearing loss live in low- and middle-income countries (WHO, 2015). This work presents a mobile application that aims to make the communication between the deaf and other people easy, thus helping them to be more productive and better integrated into their communities.
