Our Story

SignAll is a spin off of Dolphio, a leading software development company in Budapest, Hungary;  founded by Zsolt Robotka and Janos Rovnyai.

Translating sign language has long been seen as the ultimate computer vision challenge, and when the first Deaf employee was added (Hungarian / Persian software engineer), the team was further inspired to create a solution for automated sign language translation.

What started as a technical challenge and passion project had evolved into a formal company.  In combination with evolving technology and the innovation of a few passionate mathematicians and engineers, SignAll was able to produce a proof of concept that would mark the starting line in a series of successes.

Located in Budapest, Hungary, the team hand-picked the best linguists available specializing in both spoken and signed languages. They also realized they would need ongoing input from the Deaf community.

Though different sign languages exist throughout the world, American Deaf culture is one of the most developed, and ASL is used more universally than other signed languages.  It was an obvious choice to focus on ASL for developing and testing the technology. SignAll brought on a few more Deaf team members (this time from the US), and hearing team members were actively learning American Sign Language.

In 2017, a strong partnership was forged with Gallaudet University (GU), the world’s leading university for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (located in Washington D.C.).  GU has been instrumental in moving the technology forward, providing guidance, and opening doors for SignAll.

Fast forwarding to today, SignAll 1.0 is currently being piloted in the market throughout the US.  SignAll has team members in both Budapest (Hungary) and Arlington, VA (United States). The team has expanded to 25, a truly diverse team who collectively represent 7 different native languages: English, Hungarian, German, Russian, American Sign Language, Hungarian Sign Language, and Persian Sign Language.

Leadership Team

Our leaders work tirelessly to bridge the gap between the hearing and the Deaf/HoH. They are driven by their passions for a better society and guided by their expertise in their own individual fields.
