It is a common remark among the professionals in the fields of special education, that despite of the last years tremendous evolution of computer communication networks, Internet and its services and facilities, little has been done towards the direction of usage and penetration of these services within the domain of Linguistic Training for the Deaf people.

Furthermore there is a lack of learning systems that provide the training in English Language as a second language for the Deaf people.
