menU is a reusable retail coffee shop menu, that uses a visual system of communication between customer and employee, reducing the need for verbal interactions and empowering the capabilities of deaf employees. The customer would pick up a menu for their drink of choice when they enter the store (coffee or tea), while waiting in line this simple system absolves the customer from order anxiety as they can be precise while waiting and pop out their order. The clear visual language then allows the employee to have an easy understanding of the order, regardless whether they are deaf or not.
