For hearing people, the ability to participate in a conversation comes naturally. However, this task can be very difficult, if not impossible, for deaf and hard of hearing individuals. While some members of the community use interpreters or lip-reading, these services can not be relied on at all times. To combat this problem we developed Group Speak.
Being heavily involved in both the Deaf and hearing communities, the members of Group Speak will have several opportunities to utilize the platform in their everyday lives. Additionally, Group Speak intends to offer their services to NTID and expand the platform to support other languages besides English.
