Have you thought of the UbiDuo specially designed for the deaf

Lightwriters are a little more expensive

Best wishes

It was a Lightwriter; small, lightweight and the text is clearly visible
with the option to have it used for audio output. I beleive it was produce
by Toby Churchill

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.
