New technology to benefit individuals who are blind, or deaf and blind was just released as an electronic book called Touch Language and is available for free download (details below).
Touch Language is a universal language and operates across languages and cultures. It enables blind and deaf-blind individuals to communicate and also "watch" TV. It requires wearing electronic gloves that produce pecking on areas of the hands and fingers, as well as vibrations.
Touch Language is based on concepts that are identified by areas on the hands and fingers, which gives it's universality.
It will take time to learn the language, like any new language and the rewards make it worthwhile.
Touch Language was developed by Dr. Liebermann, who is known to many of our visitors, as the president of Signtel (www.signtelinc.com) and the inventor of the Telephone for the Deaf and the eCane. Touch Language is posted on the Signtel web site and is available for free download at http://www.signtelinc.com/touch-language.html
