SVLT Helps the Blind and Deaf Communicate

The SVLT (Sign-Voice-Language Translator) is a magnificent device which could potentially allow blind and deaf people to communicate.

The SVLT was designed by Han-na Lee and acts like a translator for those who cannot see or for those who cannot hear. The Sign-Voice-Language Translator converts gestures into audible voice as well as voice into text. The potential for the SVLT is tremendous. However,  I think we would like to see the SVLT in action before we dismiss sign language and Braille and crown it the ultimate in Babelesque conquests.
