iSign4You Receives Next Round of Funding

PRLog - Jan. 30, 2014 - iSign4You, a real time, multi-linguistic sign language translation tool for use across all mobile applications has received its next round of funding from Ames 7 Anderson Capital Partners out of North Carolina. Creator and majority owner of the application, Greg Reffner, states that these funds will be used to continue to grow the extensive video library necessary to ensure the most comprehensive database of signs ever created.

Reffner originally planned to crowd source the funds using a campaign through IndieGogo, but once word got out he had offers from private partners to help make his application become a reality faster.

“The hard work has been done. We have the programming code necessary to capture and track movement analysis and then translate that into whatever language we want… We now must manually build the library of signs. This aspect is very time consuming and requires we use certified sign language translators… this comes at a cost. Now is the time for my team of developers and programmers to step up and make this happen!”

Reffner plans to stick to his original time frame of an android beta test by June of 2014, and we can expect that a full version for iOS and Android to be released to the public by early 2015.

Furthermore, Greg Reffner has been in contact with The United Society for Deaf Children. As part of his plan to make communication accesible and easier for everyone; Reffner has pledged that 5% of all first year sales of the mobile application across all platforms will be donated to The USDC. Reffner has been focusing heavily on the deaf community network around the Sacramento, CA area for testing and product feedback. "It has only been through getting my hands dirty through immersion into the deaf community that I believe I have been able to direct this application towards its highest potential."

When asked where the website, and social media traffic has been Reffner replied “Once we have a product that we know works, we will begin promoting it, until then our focus is entirely on making communication possible for everyone at a price of less than $5.00.”

For more information, people are encouraged to contact iSign4You through Facebook at this time.
