In the Autumn 2014 and again in Spring 2017,  the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Deafness and Technology class researched technology devices, both historical and modern, used by deaf people. We decided to refrain from listing medical technologies as there are already several sites that provide these. Instead, we focused on those technologies that support daily living.
We hope you enjoy the compendium. It is not exhaustive by any means, however it is a beginning.

    1. To the best of my knowledge this course was not offered this year, and I do not think there’s a plan to offer it next. But who knows?? Stranger things have happened. It’s important to know this is a history course, not an engineering course. We investigate deaf people’s relationship with technologies over time and place with the goal of understanding how social processes and technology interact.
      Hope this is helpful.


      1. Thank you. I was wondering which college/professor hosted this course. I love hearing that these topics surface across disciplines! I work at NTID and try to keep up to date with such technologies and pass along what I find to my students, particularly communication related technologies. A lot of exciting resources emerging out there!
