SOLAR EAR BATTERY CHARGER
The Solar Ear battery charger utilizes solar (sun) energy to charge rechargeable hearing aid batteries. This is a more cost effective and environmentally friendly option than using conventional hearing aid batteries that needs to be disposed after a single use. The Solar Ear battery charger and rechargeable hearing aid batteries can last for up to two-three years thus saving on the cost of expensive disposable hearing aid batteries in the long-run.
The first SASL digital dictionary in South Africa (www.nid.org.za/dictionary), launched by the NID Integrated Support Services (NID ISS) is a ground-breaking initiative. The SASL dictionary will allow users to look up different SASL signs, see how the sign appears in an SASL sentence with SASL grammar and see the corresponding English word with English grammar. This dictionary will benefit Deaf children at school, SASL interpreters, parents of Deaf children, as well as the hearing population who have an interest in learning SASL.
