Two mobile applications, which help deaf people "hear" and are aimed at improving safety and convenience, were launched on Tuesday.

The first app, Hearing Aide, alerts deaf people of sounds which require their attention.

When a pre-recorded alert sounds, such as a fire alarm, it is detected by the mobile phone with the app.

The phone then notifies the deaf person through vibrations, a visual message and a flash notification.
