Introducing the Deaf and Mute to the World of Road SignsDescription of Project:
Project aims at designing first hand information about road signs for the deaf and mute children. This aid helps these challenged kids enhance their road safety and help in emergency situations, as these kids are at an early stage of being road users. Informative aid consists of cards that are single learning units or could be used in combination with other cards to be played like a game. Users can fold and expand a card, hide a part of it, organise and arrange to play on their own or in a group. Group interactions improves their confidence and makes them independent. The project benefits the users by providing an easy interface for effective transfer of information.The information aid has undergone metamorphosis through user studies, concept generation and testing mock-ups to make it as user-friendly and knowledgeable as possible. Today it stands as a proud component in educating the challenged kids of Jyoti Badhir Vidhalaya, the special school for the deaf and the mute in India.
