But little attention has been given to the take advantage of Information Technology devices to support the communication for Hard of hearing children. \ \ By the way, the present study analyses in greater detail the survey results summarized in the importance of the “Tablet-Media”. We discuss our communication assist software to express texts and images by Android application for children with Hard of hearing. In this paper, this app is analyzed using the “Capability theory” with emphasis on the power of self-expression and the right to self-determination of persons with disabilities. \ \ The results of our performance tests showed that our system was very helpful in order to provide their “Capability” for Hard of hearing children. We suggest the potential to combine our App is what we should call “Media for Capability” of communication in children with hard of hearing.
