Who's behind Signly?

Signly was conceived and developed by Mark Applin, founder of Intermedia, and Deafax, a charity committed to transforming the lives of deaf people through technology. Until now, using augmented reality seemed a little contrived. Applying the technology to create signed content for the deaf and hard of hearing seemed obvious yet no one had done it. As a long-time supporter of the charity, Intermedia shared the idea and IP with Deafax to help deliver the project.

Deafax is a charity which has been working for 30 years to empower deaf people to lead more fulfilling lives. To do this, deaf people need equal access to information, advice and services and Signly will play a significant role in extending this equality of access.
