Vote for iSpeak project to break down communication barriers between people using Sign language and those using verbal language

iSpeak logo

We currently support a great project developed by young people from our community: iSpeak!

The iSpeak application will provide an effective tool for Deaf without speech and aurally impaired people who use sign language, to communicate with hearing people unable to use sign language. It helps break down communication barriers in everyday life situations such as hospitals, job centres, restaurants, shops. Thus, deaf and aurally impaired people can express themselves through the application, reducing the communication and social barriers they face and in doing so giving them independence.

We have submitted  an entry to the Aviva Community Fund, we now need votes from as many people as possible to increase our chances of winning  this funding.

Please, click here, register, log in and if you like our iSpeak project vote for us (you can give us up to 10 votes per person!).

Have a look at the iSpeak video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkQ9NmMlBmk&feature=youtu.be
