  • Ma, Zhen Yu; Tucker, William D. (Telkom, 2008)
    Deaf people want to communicate remotely with sign language. Sign language requires sufficient video quality to be intelligible. Internet-based real-time video tools do not provide that quality. Our approach is to use ...
  • Ma, Zhen Yu; Tucker, William D. (Telkom, 2007)
    The South African Deaf community has very limited telephony options. They prefer to communicate in sign language, a visual medium. Realtime video over Internet Protocol is a promising option, but in reality, the quality ...
  • Yi, Long; Tucker, William D. (Telkom, 2009)
    One way for Deaf people to communicate with hearing people over the telephone is to use a voice relay. The service is often provided with a human relay operator that relays text into voice, and vice versa, on behalf of the ...
  • Wang, Yuan Yuan; Tucker, William D. (Telkom, 2009)
    This paper describes work in progress to to provide browser-based sign language communication for deaf users. The paper introduces the communication requirements for a disadvantaged Deaf community in Cape Town, describes ...
  • Blake, Edwin H.; Tucker, William D.; Glaser, Meryl; Freudenthal, Adinda (Wiley, 2011)
    The process of community-based co-design is one that explores various solution configurations in a multi-dimensional design space whose axes are the different dimensions of requirements and the various dimensions of designer ...
  • Blake, Edwin H.; Tucker, William D.; Glaser, Meryl; Freudenthal, Adinda (Wiley, 2011)
    The process of community-based co-design is one that explores various solution configurations in a multi-dimensional design space whose axes are the different dimensions of requirements and the various dimensions of designer ...
  • Julius, Elroy P.; Tucker, William D. (Telkom, 2005)
    This paper presents an empirical solution for guaranteeing the delivery of synchronous and asynchronous messages within a semi-synchronous IPbased communication domain. The communication infrastructure that is needed between ...
  • Julius, Elroy P.; Tucker, William D. (Telkom, 2004)
    This research aims to find an empirical solution for guaranteeing the delivery of synchronous and asynchronous messages within a semi-synchronous IP-based communication domain. The communication infrastructure that is ...
  • Yi, Long; Tucker, William D. (Telkom, 2008)
    This paper describes Kiara, an open source SIPbased communication system that provides the building blocks to enable Deaf relay services. We have implemented a prototype that provides real-time text, voice and video to a ...
  • Mutemwa, Muyowa; Tucker, William D. (Telkom, 2010)
    This paper describes how a deaf to hearing communication aid built for a mobile phone can be used to provide semi-synchronous communication between a Deaf person and a hearing person who cannot sign. Deaf people with access ...
  • Glaser, Meryl; Tucker, William D.; Mashao, Daniel (Telkom, 2004)
    Following on the development of several prototypes, we have built a semi-automated Deaf Telephony prototype on the SoftBridge platform. This prototype relays text and speech between Deaf users on the Internet and hearing ...
  • Lewis, John; Tucker, William D.; Blake, Edwin H. (Telkom, 2002)
    Users and computing equipment have varying capabilities that include the abilities to exchange text and audio, engage in high bandwidth communication, etc. As the technological options increase, e ective communication ...
  • Tucker, William D.; Glaser, Meryl; Lewis, John (Telkom, 2003)
    Following on several partial prototypes, we built an automated Deaf Telephony bridging application with the SoftBridge platform. The SoftBridge performs multi-modal bridging in real-time using Text-to-Speech (TTS) and ...
  • Glaser, Meryl; Tucker, William D. (2004)
    This paper presents a description of telecommunications for Deaf people in South Africa by contrasting the situation in the developed world. We explain the main motivations for providing a locally appropriate solution. ...
  • Penton, Jason; Tucker, William D.; Glaser, Meryl (Telkom, 2002)
    We have developed a prototype bridge that relays text and speech between Teldem, a text telephone for the Deaf, and a standard telephone or H.323 endpoint. Telgo323 uses modified H.323 media gateways and open source Text ...
  • Glaser, Meryl; Tucker, William D. (Telkom, 2001)
    A Teldem provides text-based telephony services to the deaf. Despite an array of text-based communications mechanisms on the web, the Teldem is the only means of synchronous telecommunication available to a deaf person. ...
