Abstract

We have been developing IDDD (Information Delivery System for Deaf People in a Major Disaster) system [7, 8] from 2007. In 2012, we have a chance to develop new IDDD system and test it at the school for the deaf in Miyagi. In this paper, we report the results the system performance test and the users evaluation of the new IDDD based on an experiment at the school for the deaf in Miyagi. As the result, the network performance was increased and application development cost might be half of that of the old IDDD. Also, Fast-Scroll is most legible for hearing impairments people.
