The History and the Impacts of the Technology Used by the Deaf People to Make their Lives Easier
As man celebrated the invention of telephone in the late eighteenth century, there was a group of people that did not celebrate; that is the people with hearing disabilities (Ladner, 15). People who are deaf depend on the hearing family members, neighbours, friends and people of good will to help them communicate with others. In 1960s however, Robert Weitbrecht, a deaf scientist invented a teletypewriter (TTY) for the deaf (Ladner, 15). The invention enabled people with hearing disabilities to call each other directly using the devices that were fixed with acoustic couplers. Today, there are even more technological developments to aid persons with hearing disabilities to communicate more effectively.
With more technological inventions, it remains to determine how technology has impacted hearing and effective communication for persons with hearing disabilities. The proposed study delves into the history of the technology used by the deaf people to make their lives easier, and how this technology impacts on the lives of the deaf people. The topic is relevant as it highlights how the technology has been used to make life easier for persons with hearing impairments over the years. In addition, the exposition of the current topic highlights the achievements that persons with disabilities can attain if their lives are made easier via utilization of the technology.
a. Background of the study
i) Understanding the challenges that deaf people face in the society.
ii) How these challenges can be mitigated.
b. Purpose of the study
i) To understand the history and development of the technology that is used to make life easier for deaf people.
ii) To explore the impacts of the use of technology on the lives of the deaf people.
iii) To highlight the cost implications of the technology for the deaf people against the benefits.
II. Body of the paper and review of extant literature
a. The history of development of technology that is used to make life easier for the deaf people.
b. Different technologies used to make life easier for the deaf people; TTY, TTY relay service, captioned telephone, e-mail and instant messaging.
c. Impacts of technology on the lives of the deaf people.
d. Cost implication of the technology equipment required to make life easier for the deaf.
a) How does the review of the extant literature align with the study topic and paper objectives?
