DMUTE is a messaging application for deaf and mute people that explores Kinetic Typography, machine learning, and emotional expression.

It uses machine learning to identify the user’s emotion in real time. It then translates this into an animation of typeface, color and movement that expresses the user’s feelings, which allows users to communicate more effectively with their partners and make them understand each other better. DMUTE has been designed with privacy in mind, so all conversations are encrypted end-to-end ensuring no one else can access someone’s data. DMUTE offers a unique way for deaf and mute individuals to communicate with their friends and family members privately, securely, and expressively. With its kinetic typography feature providing emotional depth to conversations, it will allow these individuals to connect on a deeper level than ever before!
