Abstract: The food ordering applications are depending on the normal menu having no interaction between the customer and staff. This is because all meals are shown either by name as a text or by a picture added to the text. Normal people who can listen and talk will be able to explain their special request by talking to the restaurant staff but, what if the customer is deaf and can’t talk or listen? In such a case, it requires the staff to be trained to use the sign language or to find a translator, otherwise the customer(deaf) will not be able to interact with the staff unless he / she knows the meal and tried it before and suits his / her favourites. The author in this research is looking forward to upgrading the food ordering menu by proposing an interactive computerized menu supporting sign language and English language. Thus, facilitating restaurants with an application which allows better interaction between deaf people and the way of ordering system.
