Our Story

A Letter From Our Co-Founder and CEO:

As the CEO of sComm and a man who is deaf, I am passionate about creating the most accessible face-to-face communication technology possible that provides rich and invigorating communication for people who are deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing.

I want that communication to be available 100% of the time. There is an old cliché that many times individuals who are deaf are “smiling, head nodding, and bluffing” their way through conversations. Instead of faking their way through any conversation, our commitment at sComm is to have people who are deaf or hard of hearing be fully actively immersed in the discussion knowing every single word and nuance.

I want the conversation to happen at any place and at any time without any limits with anyone. The ability to have unlimited conversations with another person makes life more meaningful. Sharing our collective experiences makes our lives richer and more fun.

We at sComm create the world’s most ubiquitous flagship of communication devices.

  • UbiDuo 2 Wireless
  • UbiDuo 2 Wired
  • UbiDuo 2 Text to Speech 1
  • UbiDuo 2 Text to Speech 2
  • UbiDuo 2 Speech Generating Device (SGD)

The UbiDuo 2 Speech Generating Device was recently approved by Medicare as Durable Medical Equipment making it available to all those who are deaf who are eligible.

You have the ability to communicate. I want everyone to have the freedom to communicate at any place and anytime with anyone. The UbiDuo makes that possible. Lastly, you can learn more about sComm below.

Enjoy!
Communicate freely,

Jason Curry
Co-founder and CEO

Our Story

The UbiDuo was born out of pure frustration. David and Jason Curry, father and son and co-founders of sComm, sat down for breakfast one morning and struggled to carry on an in-depth business conversation, free of misinterpretation and confusion. Enough was enough. David Curry came up with the idea for the UbiDuo that day, sketching on the family’s kitchen whiteboard his vision for a simple, yet a revolutionary product that would forever change the way he communicated with his deaf son.
“When I saw him draw that design out I knew that was the device that was going to change the world for people who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, and hearing.”
-Jason Curry, Co-founder and CEO

The family sought to make their dream a reality by obtaining two Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants from the National Institutes of Health in 2005. Through the grants, they were able to test the feasibility of the product, determine if it improved face-to-face communication between deaf and hearing people, further identify product features and develop the first UbiDuo prototype. Just like that, one family’s efforts to achieve meaningful and treasured personal connections through communication brought the same life-changing triumph to millions of other deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals across the world.
