About the project
People who are Deaf have been at an unfair disadvantage with regards to access to technology. Using Information Communication Technologies (ICT) can be problematic for many people who are Deaf since as pupils many leave school with severe reading and writing inadequacies. Equally important is the fact that the first language for many people who are Deaf is the sign language of their country. Moreover, one may find multiple dialects of sign language within a country. Providing information in sign language can alleviate these types of barriers and impact positively in the integration of the Deaf community into the ICT society.
