FaceToFace is a communication system designed for use by individuals who are deaf-blind. The system allows a user who is deaf-blind to communicate wirelessly with a sighted partner at a distance of up to 30 feet. The system includes software, a Hewlett Packard iPAQ Pocket PC with thumb keyboard, and a CompactFlash Bluetooth card. The software also can run on a PAC Mate notetaker (not included), available with either a 20-cell or 40-cell refreshable braille display. The deaf-blind party uses the PAC Mate's alphabetic or braille keyboard to write messages, and the sighted party types on the HP iPAQ Pocket PC. The entire conversation displays on both devices – visually on the iPAQ and in braille on the PAC Mate. Conversations can be saved to text files, and text can be pasted into a conversation. The system can also be used to communicate with other PAC Mate users, and the program can be run on a Bluetooth-enabled desktop or laptop computer. OPTIONS: A combination with a PAC Mate BX (braille keyboard) or QX (alphabetic keyboard) with a 20-cell braille display or a PAC Mate BX or QX with 40 cells of braille is available.
