The research study presented in this paper focuses on the process of communication between differently-abled people via technological machine model stated in the methodology section of this research paper. This challenging issue of human interaction between dissimilar impairments has sought a medium of communication between a normal person and a differently-abled person troubled by a single disability, be it blindness, be it deafness, or be it dumbness. But, apart from all such scenarios, no such solution exists in this world, full of advancements that include the word “technology” where a remedy to dual or multiple (combination of blind, deaf, dumb) defects in a person right from their births is available. So, keeping this fact alive in the woes and wits, authors have proposed a machine model by help of which the sufferers suffering with similar or dissimilar disabilities could have dialogue with one another in the easiest possible manner. The prime focus of the authors is to shed some light in the field of communication between disabled people suffering with mono, dual, or multiple defects who could meet the basic day-to-day necessities of their life by using this proposed machine model, who were using finger sensations and lip movement learning methods that were miles away from technological grounds till yet. The algorithms have been presented to convey the proper working and functioning mechanism of the machine model to ease the task of live conversation between the sufferers. The various case studies involving every possible use case diagram have been included, showing the parameters and considerations on which the recommended machine model will be best suited for working, have seeked its wide discussion. The final phase of this research study will show the descriptive images highlighting the working methodology and usage of tables has also been done for providing a better knowledge of the proposed concept.
