Abstract

There is a large hearing impaired population that may be unaware of normal telephone rings. Devices currently exist to .allow these people to communicate over telephones and to notify them that a phone is ringing. One such device is a light flasher that can be attached to the phone, but this can be difficult to see during the day and is ineffective if the person is asleep.
