Although not all deaf and hard of hearing people may be interested in hearing sounds, some are interested in being aware of what sounds occur, and when. I am designing novel technologies for sound awareness for deaf and hard of hearing users. I am currently collecting information about sound and device preferences for sound awareness. If you identify as deaf or hard of hearing, you can share your opinions and help design technologies by filling out this survey about sound awareness!
Three frames with a background include a bird chirping, a car honking, and two women chatting: 1) A man looks at his smartphone, 2) a man looks at his smartwatch, and 3) a man looks through a pair of glasses.
