@LarryM99, this is fascinating. No, I have never been in a car with a deaf driver and I had never even given thought to it. I should definitely ask this question to carmakers!

@Ronneale I can totally relate to your frustrations, but in a slightly different way. On our new Ford Escape, we have a voice-activated option for selecting playlists. After the fifth time of trying to communicate a particular playlist, I'm sounding like Jessie on Breaking Bad: "Playlist Rolling Stones, B*tch!"

Junko-discovered the foot reading capability by accident. I was sitting on the couch bare footed, as you do, I raised my foot and the screen lit up with all the arrows and command annotations. Then I decided to see if could change channels by using my foot to move the cursor, success, but short lived. The problem was evolution has not allowed me to make a fist out of my toes, the required signal, so I could not actually change channels. So reverted to the voice recognition and shouting mode to finally "Hi TV power off".
