Freedom Scientific has solutions to help deaf-blind individuals communicate electronically face-to-face and over a distance. We offer two types of communication systems for independent and portable two-way conversations.
The Interpretype Deaf-Blind Communication System is a full-spectrum solution that is easy to use for communicating online and face to face. Users can communicate over a distance using the Internet, or face to face using Bluetooth®.
FaceToFace™ teams up with Bluetooth® connectivity and the PAC Mate™ Omni accessible Pocket PC to create a portable way for deaf-blind individuals to engage in real-time conversations with others - without the need for a specially-trained interpreter.
