Bank tests text system for Deaf/deaf customers in Okinawa Prefecture

October 11, 2013

Ryugyu Bank located in Okinawa Prefecture in the southern island of Japan announced on October 10 that it carried out a trial of the system which displays on a tablet what a bank clerk says in text almost simultaneously.

It is assumed for a service to customers who are Deaf/deaf or elderly people.

The bank will test the system with ten brunches till the end of February, next year, and consider formal introduction after checking an effect.

The bank was using conventionally the "writing board" in communicating with a Deaf/deaf customer.
