App to assist deaf mobile-phone users lacks funding from FCC

http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/technology/app-to-assist-deaf-mobile-phone-users-hits-fcc-roadblock/2013/10/25/fd8926a2-2c5d-11e3-8ade-a1f23cda135e_story.html

The app, known as InnoCaption, allows deaf users to “hear” a person talking on the end of a call with the help of a stenographer who transcribes the conversation. However, it needs FCC approval to gain access to a government fund that would allow deaf customers to use the app for free. Economically, this sort of news is important to learn from for any development firm who is dependent upon a 3rd party to execute their app release.
