    Services developed by UK organisations will help some hearing-impaired people to participate more fully in phone calls and meetings.

    A Bedfordshire company will soon start two new services using internet devices and voice recognition technology.

    And the Royal National Institute for Deaf people (RNID) is launching the ScreenPhone.

    Both products turn voice calls or meetings into text and are aimed at deaf people who prefer to speak.

    The ScreenPhone costs just over £200 and uses the RNID's Typetalk service.
