    Hi, I am largely deaf and I was wondering if there is software that would allow me to communicate, via text typed 'into' either my "smart phone" or my laptop tethered to my smartphone etc, with a "minicom"?
    It seems, in essence, a 'simple' thing yet I have yet to find anything to do it, maybe I am being thick and not seeing the problems involved.
    Thanks in advance.

    There's text-to-speech software in the phone, but I don't know of any that would send the speech to the phone app. Everything else is done by typing (although the speech to text software makes it possible - but not mandatory - to speak your commands).

    For phone calls you're still probably going to have to use a relay service. Read some of these links https://www.google.com/search?q=andr...x-a&channel=sb
