Breaking Barriers with our AI Sign Language Translator

Welcome to Signapse! We are so pleased that you found us. I am a synthetic signer. I was built to work with you to turn your words into sign language quickly and with no fuss.

We are developing real-time sign language translator software

We are a team of Deaf and hearing people; entrepreneurs, engineers, and researchers. We build artificial intelligence solutions for clients who want access to sign language translation and interpretation. Broadcast media, announcements in public spaces, and websites can be inaccessible if you are a sign language user and it is our job to make sure your organisation provides great access for Deaf people.

How does it work?

Meet our digital signers

You will recognize their faces; these are Guy, Safyan, and Mia.

When the content is translated into sign language, they will be who you see. They reside at the bottom of the page, translating audio, text, and video for our users. Our synthetic signers are all based on actual video footage of translators who are compensated each time their image is used commercially. 

If you would like to be part of this small but perfect team of signers, please get in touch.

Keen not to be seen?

Would you like visual anonymisation of your sign language content online to enable safe sharing? We are providing early access to our automatic sign language video anonymisation tool for a select group of clients.

If you prefer privacy, please send your sign language video to No matter the video quality or language, we can anonymise the signed content exactly to your needs. We delete all personal data within 7 days.

What are we developing?

Providing a synthetic signer for use in broadcast media platforms. Driven by a human interpreter signing from home, our technology reduces the production cost, provides a consistent signer appearance, and enables anonymisation for the interpreter.

Providing automatic announcements using the latest artificial intelligence techniques. At a fraction of the cost, at train stations, airports, or further afield- both regular and emergency announcements can be made in sign language.

Providing a consistent appearance to translated content via our synthetic signer technology. Working with project partners, Microlink, national banks, and retail, we use Signapse's pioneering technology to provide accessibility to an audience of up to 80,000 Deaf people.  We will be ensuring that the needs of sign language users are front and center in this project.
