Good Vibes App, a communication app for deafblind individuals:
"Samsung Good Vibes is a two-way communication app that allows the deafblind to send and receive messages with friends, family or anybody else through their smartphones. It translates Morse Code input into text or voice and vice versa.
An app with two interfaces:
For the deafblind. A deafblind person can send a message from the app by tapping on the screen using Morse Code—where all letters of the English alphabet are combinations of dots and dashes. The letters can be input as short tap for a dot and long press for a dash. Likewise, incoming messages can be understood as vibrations by the deafblind, where small vibration means a dot and long vibration means a dash.
For people with typical sight and hearing. Anyone can send a message, by typing or speaking. It has a standard chat/voice interface that delivers the message to the deafblind person as Morse Code vibrations...Deafblind is a term that is used when a person has a combination of impaired vision and hearing. Some are born deafblind, some are only deaf at birth and lose their eyesight in childhood, while others start to progressively lose their hearing and vision into adulthood..."
