Technology, in general, is assisting hearing loss constantly, see how Huawei and FCB Inferno’s StorySign is helping children learn to read.
Huawei are the world’s second largest smartphone manufacturer. The brand’s promise is to ‘push the limits of what is humanly possible’, and they challenged us to bring it to life in way that made a positive difference in society. We identified a human problem their technology could help solve.
There are 32 million deaf children in the world, and most of them struggle to read. This is because deaf children can’t learn phonetically, so they struggle to match words with sounds. This has a hugely negative effect on their futures, reducing their opportunities, impacting on their employability, future earnings, even their health. In fact, new research shows that it takes 21 years for deaf children to catch up with their hearing peers.
The project has been to raise awareness of deaf literacy issues and to use mobile technology to open the world of books to deaf children. Please watch this video to find out more:
