Air Alphabet: Speaking with Your Eyes
If unable to move or to speak, how could you communicate with others?
Besides speaking, there are also different ways that a person can use to communicate.
They can use their hands, for example, to write, draw, point, using sign language. However, all those systems require some ability to move.
One can also use their eyes as a means of communication. Not just by making gestures with their eyes or blinking, but to actually speak with their eyes.
