Research overview:
In fiscal 2000 we found that cell phones and PHS's are popular among many persons of poor auditory capability through a group of people with hearing difficulty. Communicating system utilizing mail function of cell phones has recently been constructed. This system is very attractive to people with hearing difficulty, but is not fully established as a means of urgent communication. Thus study investigates detail of the effectiveness in current environment of usage, and conducts development of assisting system that utilizes cell phones and PHS's as letter displaying terminal reflecting the result of above investigation.
