Device to let scuba divers communicate underwater

The idea is to create a dive transceiver that will allow scuba divers to communicate underwater without the need for expensive, specialized masks.
The pocket-sized transceiver will use bone conduction technologies to pick up the diver's words and ultrasound to transmit those words to transceivers worn by the other divers. The sound waves will be played back as speech via the unit's bone conduction speakers and the "built-in digital speech conversion technology" will help to correct garbled speech. Divers will switch between transmission and reception modes by tapping the unit.
The device will allow communication between divers within visual range of each other.
