Join the Crowd

bridge is a revolutionary assistive technological solution that is helping government and private organizations to better serve and support over 466 million people around the world who are deaf or hard of hearing and do not read or write. With two editions – bridge Live and bridge Avatar – this breakthrough technology powers a web and social media interpreter, video-enabled visual contact forms, voice to sign, text to sign, live remote interpretation, and much more…

The Facts

  • Around 466 million people suffer from disabling hearing loss worldwide (WHO, 2020).
  • It is estimated that, by 2050, this community will have grown to over 900 million people (WHO, 2020).
  • The majority of the deaf population prefers to communicate using sign language, and does not read or write.
  • Many organizations and service-providers do not currently have a deaf-friendly infrastructure, so these users struggle to access the information, services and support they are looking for.
  • There is no single, universal Sign Language.

Introducing... bridge Live

The Live edition presents a third-party live assistant to provide immediate remote interpretation, enabling deaf users to connect and communicate with the service provider. The user is linked to a certified professional sign language interpreter, who provides instantaneous interpretation. Users can access the Live assistant from their web browser, mobile or tablet, or simply by scanning a QR code when out and about, so they are always connected and never excluded.
