FREQUENCY ASSIGNMENT METHOD FOR IMPROVING MUSICAL PERCEPTION IN PATIENTS WITH COCHLEAR IMPLANTS

Blind and hearing loss people encounter difficulties with face-to-face communication due to the inability to share information with unknown or virtually unknown conversational partners who are not familiar with the alternative communication systems they use. Current technology, particularly mobile phones, has allowed for this project to be developed in order to offer a new means of communication in these situations.

In this regard, a free mobile app has been created based on the real needs of blind and hearing loss people, which is fully flexible for users, offering great integration with other functions and apps already on the mobile device, such as sending text messages or emails, which will improve their quality of life.
