Sungjun Cha's 'Stick Talk' makes it easy to communicate with the hearing and visually impaired who don't have any knowledge of Braille or sign language.

The 'Stick Talk' lets you speak into the device and words will appear on the screen. Also, the hearing impaired can write out sentences on their palm with the stick, which senses the text to either display it on the screen or verbalize it on Sungjun Cha's Stick Talk speaker. Communication just got easier.
