It is hard to imagine a world without the telephone. Our lives have grown to depend on computers linked into phone lines to do our shopping, our banking, or helping us through a typical day work.
When you walk into your office, the first thing you do is to turn on the computer and pull up your electronic mail for the day.

Its role has been changed to providing the latest information to the deaf of the world on how best to cope with their disability.
