Text Messenger 'Walkee-Talkees' have finally arrived!


Deaf people can wirelessly instant message their friends, their bosses, their doctors, and attorneys. These devices are an incredible breakthrough in technology and cost for face-to-face communication equipment. These small hand held infared based devices can send and receive text messages makes them perfect for face-to-face communication.

Why should people spend almost $2,000 for a pair of face-to-face communication devices when they can get it for less than $50!

This had been the last dream of the late Morton Warnow who believed that deaf people can and should communicate with the hearing people in English. We at Orange County Deaf Advocacy Center are proud to be the ones to live up his last dream of introducing face-to-face communication equipment that is hardly burdensome to obtain. We took over Morton Warnow's mission with the promise to live up his dream and we've succeeded!

And this is very strong and very powerful advocacy on our part.
