HELPING DEAF CHILDREN TO LEARN TO READ
So in 2018, using AI and augmented reality, we created StorySign - the world’s first literacy platform for deaf children. Learning to read can be difficult for any child, but for small children who are severely or profoundly deaf, it can be an overwhelming challenge. We knew our technology could help to open the realm of books to 32 million deaf children around the globe and introduce them to a world of imagination, curiosity and creativity.
StorySign is a free mobile app that aims to help deaf children read by translating the text from selected books into sign language. Through the power of AI and augmented reality, StorySign brings these books to life and helps deaf children enjoy storytime as every child should.
