Abstract: Nowadays, the deaf and dumb category represents a large number of people in our society, especially in Saudi Arabia. The sign language is considered to be the main way to interconnect with deaf and dumb, but most of the normal people have no ideas about this language. For this reason, there is a growing need to find alternative solutions for communicating with them. In this paper, we propose three different methods that can help deaf and dumb people to have a better and easy life. First, the "ABSHER for Deaf" service can help deaf people to use their account for the Ministry of Interior which called ABSHER. Second, the "Keyboard for Deaf" feature can support the sign language images and symbols in the keyboard as a different feature to convert between the normal person language and the deaf language. Finally, "Be Aware of your medicine" that can help deaf people to understand all the information about the medicine given to them.
