An app that assists novice ASL interpreters with imagery and text during simultaneous interpretation.
Interpreters are a vital part of accessibility and inclusion for deaf and hard of hearing individuals. However, interpretation is a highly stressful job requiring a lot of experience, knowledge, and energy. It is especially difficult for novice interpreters who start out interpreting an unfamiliar topic with terms they do not know. SignSavvy assists interpreters by providing them with live imagery and text when unfamiliar terms are used in interpretation sessions. It also helps them schedule and keep track of their sessions, and learn vocabulary that might arise in future sessions.
