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.
According to *research in the United States, approximately 0.38% of the population, or 3.8 per 1,000 people (over 5 years of age) are “functionally deaf.” Every deaf individual has friends, family and co-workers who are a mix of deaf and hearing. (Some hearing folks know sign language, others find alternate methods of communication.)
SignAll not only benefits the Deaf, but the hearing individuals they interact with on a daily basis. Improved communication benefits everyone involved… friends, family, work colleagues, businesses…
