ABSTRACT
For Deaf people, access to the mobile telephone network
in the United States is currently limited to text messaging,
forcing communication in English as opposed to American
Sign Language (ASL), the preferred language. Because ASL
is a visual language, mobile video phones have the potential
to give Deaf people access to real-time mobile communica-
tion in their preferred language.
