Abstract

This paper discusses the efficiency of the Emergent Application on Smart Phones (EASP). In an initial survey, hearing impaired people are asked to explain their difficulties in an emergency situation. With this survey as background, an application with five steps is implemented on Smart Phone touch panels using outcome icons and pictograms to communicate to a call centre in the fire brigade. The evaluation results with EASP application by deaf people found that it was about five times quicker to report an emergency using this tool, than it by using text message input.
