Hello all,

We are looking for a communication system that can be used by an instructor or tutor to interact with a deaf student. We are using interpreters for class lectures, but would like to explore other options for lab/tutoring sessions. Does anybody have any good system they would recommend?

I would like to know if there are any mobile device apps that could be used for two-way text communication other than just texting. Also, we used to have a system that had two keyboards and displays. A person would sit on one side and type their message to the other person and it would show on both displays. Unfortunately, none of us can remember what it was called. One colleague called it the Battleship system because it reminded her of playing the old game.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
