Contact information for hard-of-hearing and deafened people in Israel

Recently some people asked me for contact information for their hearing impaired relatives or friends, who used to be hearing but are now having hearing problems.

Well, to save everyone’s time, it is:

Voice phone (inside Israel): 03-5257001

I am deaf since birth. I played with big computers which eat punched cards and spew out printouts since age 12. Ever since they became available, I work and play with desktop size computers which eat keyboard keypresses and spew out display pixels. Among other things, I developed software which helped the deaf in Israel use the telephone network, by means of home computers equipped with modems. Several years later, I developed Hebrew localizations for some cellular phones, which helped the deaf in Israel utilize the cellular phone networks. I am interested in entrepreneurship, Science Fiction and making the world more accessible to people with disabilities.
