SignAble Communications is accelerating access for the deaf with "An interpreter in your pocket"

The SignAble App provides on-demand interpreters on calls between deaf and hearing people.
BANGALORE, India - Dec. 12, 2022 - PRLog -- There are over 18 million deaf people in India and most are illiterate with no easy way to communicate with the outside world. SignAble is revolutionising accessibility in India with a mobile application that is, in essence "An interpreter in your pocket" for deaf people. With it, the deaf can be included in all communication – in their homes with their family and friends, in public spaces such as shops, hospitals and government agencies and in the workplace with managers and colleagues. The app provides on-demand access to live interpreters in 16 Indian languages. It has been built with significant input from the deaf community to overcome illiteracy barriers and obstacles to seamless communication between the deaf and hearing.

The SignAble app allows a deaf user to make a mobile-based call to a hearing person. To facilitate that conversation, a deaf person initiates a call via the SignAble app. They are then connected to a SignAble interpreter on the app. The interpreter converses in speech to initiate the conversation with the hearing person. During the course of the call, the interpreter enables communication both ways, in Sign Language with the deaf user via video link and an audio call with the hearing person.

"Before I had SignAble to communicate with my doctor, I could come away from an appointment complaining about stomach issues with no idea whether I had food poisoning or cancer. The app has changed my interaction with the world. I have so much more confidence knowing that I can talk to anyone now." Rupmani Chhetri, aged 35.
