From Wired: Uber Unveils App Updates to Help Its Deaf Drivers

Uber has just updated its partner app with features designed for its deaf and hard-of-hearing drivers.

Once a driver chooses to turn on the special features by flipping a switch inside the app, a light will flash when a new trip is requested in addition to the existing audio cue.
