A bracelet that converts verbal communication into text for the hearing impaired

DeVu is a wearable captioning device in the form of a smart bracelet that helps deaf people communicate with people around them. The smart device works by converting audible words into written words that can be read on the bracelet. The user can easily determine which person's interactions to translate through a scanner that determines the directions the vocals are coming from. The bracelet can also be paired with any phone in order to translate the phone calls of the user.
