Abstract

Deaf and Hard Hearing (D/HH) are made up of a unique community of people with their own language and culture. Previous studies reveal that D/HH students have a literacy problems. Literacy is the ability to read and write. Many studies have reported that D/HH students lacking in several skills that are required for reading and writing. This paper aims to survey the expert's opinion on D/HH literacy problems. Therefore, experts were interviewed for the effects of learning application tools for D/HH students. Moreover, a survey was formulated and submitted to the experts. The results show that learning applications are important in D/HH studies. Furthermore, the capability of sign language (SL) comparing with speaking language for teaching D/HH students was also highlighted. This paper contributes to highlight the needs and the motivations to consider the usage of applications in the D/HH study.
