New Voice-to-Screen Technology Could Benefit Deaf and Hard of Hearing

The Cincinnati Business Courier reports that Cincinnati Bell Wireless will launch a service that allows customers to receive voicemails as text messages.

I look forward to seeing this emerging technology in action, mainly because it shows some promise for people in the deaf and hard-of-hearing community, of which our family is a part. Most deaf and hard-of-hearing folks I know who rely on text messaging could receive voicemails from hearing people in this way.
