---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of a theurputic training aid to assist deaf/mute children to speak effectively. The VV-Talker is designed for children who are deaf and/or mute to assist them in overcoming difficulties in speaking effectively. Since they cannot hear the sounds a hearing person makes, it is difficult to know if they pronouncing words or sounds correctly. The VV-Talker has two components - a vibration detector that with a handle that fits around the front of the throat, and a screen that displays the vibrations sensed by the detector to illustrate the sound made. As the child speaks, the device provides feedback on accuracy and teaches the child to speak with the correct “vocal vibrations” to achieve the correct modulation. When not in use, the detectors fastens to the back of the screen to form a single unit. TITLE: Learning Tool for Deaf Children. WEBSITE: Yanko Design.
