At last – a good role for 3G

Mobile phones

We hadn’t really considered the implications that video calls could have for some people. Until we got a press release from 3 in Sweden, that is. Apparently, the company has an awful lot of deaf customers, thanks to the opportunity video calls give those with hearing impairments to use sign language over the phone. Because of this, the company has just launched a special web page with sign language pages (see here) and is working with the Swedish Deaf Organisation (SDR) to evaluate and develop 3G services that will help signing people over in Sweden. Nice to know that 3G can be useful after all.
