In addition to this, communication training activities take a long time and are continuous, so many teachers and students are bored and bored in these activities.

Independent learning communication training for deaf students using the speech-impaired application system, aims to overcome the problem of the limited number of special schools and teachers who handle deaf students, overcome boredom and boredom in the teaching and learning process and accelerate communication skills for these students.
